Daniel White Hodge, PhD, is an expert in religion and popular culture, race, & Hip Hop studies. His most recent book, The Soul Of Hip Hop: Rimbs, Timbs, & A Cultural Theology, engages a new arena of theological studies by examining what Hip Hoppers espouse to be God and the quest for spirituality within the Hip Hop community.

His unique perspective on Hip Hop and Theology challenges his audiences to look beyond the "outer surface" and go into the deeper parts of the culture.
