Click here for Monday’s feature:

In the 1980s and 1990’s an art form emerged out of the Hip-Hop and Rap subcultures known as “Spoken Word”–poetry that tended to be critical in nature regarding social concerns or inequities. Since that time, it has become a popular form of expression for more than protest, but continues to be provocative in its focus.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Micah Bournes, a spoken word artist and Senior at the Moody Bible Institute, who uses it as a medium to share the gospel.

If you’d like to contact Micah his email address is: micahbournes@yahoo.com

Here are the complete versions of the spoken word pieces used in today’s feature plus a bonus one:

The List:

When America Dies:

Ex Nihilo:

Trust me:

  1. this man has a great voice, good reading thanks

  2. Very moving and POWERFUL way to share the Gospel! Heard this on the radio on my way from work, I was moved. I especially love “Ex Nihilo” and “When America Dies” God Bless you Micah!

  3. Very moving. Good way to communicate with oral societies, I’m thinking.

  4. what fire!

  5. A wonderful ministry, Micah! I would like to share some of your work with my co-workers. How can I get this on MP3?

  6. Does micha have cd s 4 sale?
    Is he on iTunes?

    • Micah doesn’t have a CD of his spoken word as of yet, but hopes to do so in the future. Feel free to contact him by email and let him know of your interest and I’m sure he’ll keep you informed.
