His rise to fame was one of rap's great success stories. He had millions of fans and the prospect of multi-millions of dollars. But just as Ma#&36;e -- as he was then called -- was poised to sign a deal with Sean "Puffy" Combs' famed Bad Boy Records, he walked away.
Revelations is Mason Betha's powerful memoir about a miraculous transformation: his own -- from the material-minded Ma$e to the pastor he has become. Here, Betha reveals the rhyme and reason behind his choice to trade in his sensational music career for a richer, more spiritual one. As founder of a nondenominational movement called S.A.N.E. (Saving a Nation Endangered) Ministries, Betha has traveled throughout the country to share his messages of peace and prosperity with today's youth. Revelations is his testament to the enduring power of faith, and to the limitless possibilities in a life transformed by God's guiding hand.

This book was not bad but I expected much more. He talked about his transformation to Christ more than his life with Bad Boy. I wasn't disappointed because he opened my eyes through his search for God. It was not expected for him to find God but the Lord tried to get him through alot of people. He finally succeeded to get Mason because Ma$e no longer exist. I commend you on your journey. You are rewarded from God daily for your decision to choose him and give up on the expensive cars and homes, weed, record label, money, and girls. Continue to be bless, Mason! You and your wife continue to save souls because it is needed in this world.
This is my favorite book in the world! It teaches how to go from rap to Christian, I LOVE it. I absolutely recomend it to everyone.
I was so impressed, shocked, and satisfied w/ this book. His life, the entertainment business, the spirituality, the honesty the forthcoming of him from an artist to a Pastor. I recommend it to ANYBODY especially guys on the street who has NO spiritual guidance or way what-so-ever... IT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE (AND they way you think).
