Meet the Author

Since releasing their album Jesus Freak, dc Talk has emerged as a leader in the pursuit of melding rock 'n' roll with provocative questions of faith. Although various rock predecessors have examined spiritual issues—U2, Van Morrison, and Bob Dylan immediately come to mind—dc Talk has taken the notion to new lengths, both in commercial terms and depth of artistic exploration. Numerous Dove Awards, three Grammy Awards, two platinum albums, one gold album, and two gold-certified long-form videos attest to the group's ability to bridge the gap between religious and secular audiences. "We are very open about our Christian faith," says Toby McKeehan, "but when we make our records we want to create a musical experience that anyone can immerse themselves in. One of our goals is to encourage listeners to question themselves and to seek out truth."

Authoring the books in the JESUS FREAKS series is the newest venture in an ongoing growth process which began when the three members first met in the mid-1980s while attending college in Virginia. After relocating to Nashville, dc Talk released a series of increasingly ambitious-and successful-albums, beginning with their self-titled 1989 debut; followed by their gold-certified 1990 sophomore album Nu Thang; the platinum-certified 1992 opus Free at Last; 1995's Jesus Freak, a platinum-plus watershed which afforded the group more mainstream success than ever before; and 1998's Supernatural, which reflects the maturity and sophistication of their latest stage of development and growth. They have sold over seven million albums and have won four Grammys.

With Jesus Freaks and Jesus Freaks Volume II: Stories of Revolutionaries Who Changed Their World Fearing God, Not Man, they launch into a new media form to challege readers to question their standards of faith and dedication. By giving these stories a platform from which to be heard, they hope to impact the world in a way they never have before.

Whether forging strong bonds with concert audiences, expressing their faith in the recording studio, or confronting readers with no-compromise stories of commitment, dc Talk strives to treat their audiences as equals rather than receptors. McKeehan says,"We want to create art that encourages people to think about the things we think about-spiritual issues and truth." Max adds, "Just as we all share the idea of caring and conscience, we also share the hunger to find truth and meaning in life."

With Jesus Freaks Volume II, dc Talk once again encourages each of us to set out on our journey to discover our response to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I absolutely LOVE this book! This book is just what I need when I need to be reminded of God's promises, or I want to know the Biblical view of things, especially when I'm on the go (I keep it in my purse!). I've only had this book for about 2 months, but there are so many times when I've opened it and found just the right Bible verse. This book is so encouraging, but also challenging. There are tons of Bible verses under easy-to-look-up headings, such as 'Love' 'Fear' 'Child of God', and so many more! Its small size allows you to take it anywhere. It also has different translations of the Bible verses, like NIV, the King James Version, the Message, etc., which can really make it easier to understand. Once again, I LOVE this book!!! Its helped me alot, and this book is definitely worth the money! If you're looking for the truth, you'll find it in 'Promises for a Jesus Freak'.

I have been a DC Talk fan for about five or six years and they make great albums and they can write great books. This is the only Jesus Freak book I have actually read so far but plan to read the others shortly. This book is a great devotional tool and can help you if your stuggling or maybe going through a tought time. It is also a good way to help you remember God has a plan for you all you have to do is let Him work.
