Trip Lee's Debut Book Release The Good Life

Posted on May 23, 2012 / by Bradley

Trip Lee is gearing up for his debut book release, The Good Life through Moody Publishers.  A continuation to his latest album which released on April 10, 2012, The Good Life will hit stores nationwide on October 1, 2012.

“For years, I've been doing music that challenges our world views and points to Christ - but there have always been limitations to music, because there's only so much you can communicate in a song,” says Trip. “The album gave listeners snapshots of the good life, and the book will be more like a manual on how to live it. I'm praying that this book will help the reader to turn away from lies and live the way we were created to live.”

By using personal testimonials of his own life, Trip explores the lies that have been told, and paints a new, biblical picture of the good life. Exploring all of life including happiness, success, and morality in light of God's truth The Good Life redefines the term as not living to please yourself but living by faith in a good God. 

“The good life is not climbing to the top of the corporate ladder, the good life is not a life free from any responsibility,” says Trip. “The good life is living in sync with God and embracing all that He has to offer us in Christ.”

Go deeper and find out what it really means to live the good life.

Great to see a book by a rapper. You look into the world today and see illiterate people that talk about their dreams, but Trip Lee has proven to be a well spoken literate person that speaks his real life, as well as his dreams for the world, and himself. He's proven it in his music, and now he's going to show us more in a book, so we don't have to stare past the rhymes to see what his life and mission really is. Can't wait to read this.
