In Touch With Culture
Dr. Hodge has a unique perspective as one of the world’s few Hip Hop scholars. Completing his dissertation at Fuller Seminary on the gospel of Tupac Shakur, he has focused his ministry on connecting the Academy and the Church to youth in the streets. He is a leader in an emerging group of scholars relating the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Hip Hop and the culture at large. In a recent interview at Calvin College, Dan encourages us to look past the commercialized facade put on Hip Hop and culture as a whole, and to find the complex themes that, surprisingly often, turn youth to God.
