A powerful evangelism tool, developed at Trinity Church of Morrisania in the birthplace of Hip Hop, the South Bronx, "The Hip Hop Prayer Book" offers a means to worship that will draw in the young and speak to those not generally spoken to by the Church. It contains daily prayers, Psalms, a variety of services (including a Eucharist), and a selection of Bible stories. Designed with the enlivening power of Hip Hop in mind, with prefaces by two bishops of the Episcopal Church and a wealth of contextualizing materials, "The Hip Hop Prayer Book" can be used for personal worship and by church leaders looking for ways in which to broaden the reach of their congregation.
The Rev. Timothy Holder is the Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church of Morrisania in the South Bronx of the City of New York and the Founding Priest and Pastor of the HipHopEMass.
