The Art of Joy
jackie Hill Perry's sanctified lyrics and confident flow make The Art of Joy one of the most compelling Christian rap debuts in recent memory. Perry brings a backstory of personal struggle to the project—most importantly, she displays a poet’s gift for wordplay matched with exalted vision and a fearless heart. Confrontational tunes like “Educated Fool” and “Dead Preacher” are interspersed with hope-infused pieces like “I Just Wanna Get There” and the title track. Sparse but potent beats and tasteful keyboards frame Perry’s testimony to full advantage.

"I used to be a lesbian."
In Gay Girl, Good God, author Jackie Hill Perry shares her own story, offering practical tools that helped her in the process of finding wholeness. Jackie grew up fatherless and experienced gender confusion. She abused marijuana, loved pornography, and embraced both masculinity and homosexuality with every fiber of her being. She knew that Christians had a lot to say about all of the above. But was she supposed to change herself? How was she supposed to stop loving women, when homosexuality felt more natural to her than heterosexuality ever could?
At age 19, Jackie came face-to-face with what it meant to be made new. And not in a church, or through contact with Christians—God broke in and turned her heart towards Him right in her own bedroom in light of His gospel.
Read in order to understand. Read in order to hope. Or read in order, like Jackie, to be made new.
