(RNS) — At the height of his career, award-winning hip-hop artist Lecrae wondered what it would look like to walk away from it all.

Wrestling with past trauma and the role he played in white evangelicalism, he would leave behind “116,” the slogan he’d fashioned from Chapter 1, verse 16 of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans (“For I am not ashamed of the gospel”). He made plans to leave Reach Records, the record label he had co-founded, and his success as a Christian artist.

In his book “I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion but Found My Faith,” released this week, Lecrae, 41, whose full name is Lecrae Davaughn Moore, chronicles how he found his way back instead.
