The New Face of Evangelism: A review of Kanye West's Opera "Mary"

After experiencing A Kanye West Opera: Mary at Lincoln Center during this advent season, it is safe to say that what he is doing is biblically based and theologically sound ministry. This is REAL DEAL teaching and preaching of scripture in a way that should make your momma and them church should take notes.

They have combined the drama of his Hip-Hop stage show, one that has drawn crowds from the secular world, with the intentional sermonizing of the consecrated gospel of his Lord, Jesus. They have used very few words (outside of the Latin in the solos) to tell the story that simply can’t be better communicated than through the original scripture.

And Kanye is authentically open and well is… Kanye… Never losing his Chicago drawl, never sacrificing the notorious work ethic that he has been known for (in the middle of the show, while narrating, he shouted to the orchestration “No Trumpets”), he has communicated his clearly how he sees the miraculous circumstances of Jesus birth.

He also seems to be leaning and learning on other believers to have a more firm Christian foundation than even on his last album. If we could claim to know what God thinks about his servants’ work and the evangelic opportunity of this project, we believe Matthew 25:21 might communicate it. “Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”

I’m very impressed w/ his new cd.
He’s always had mega talent, but Ye has come a long way.
