My introduction to Shai Linne was when a friend showed me “Jesus Is Alive”. I was deeply moved by the sheer triumph of Jesus over all other world, historical and religious leaders. I was quite humoured by the cheekiness of some of the lyrics, and I found the music quite groovy and old-school. My interest had been piqued, so I gave his first record, The Atonement, a spin. Rappers on limited atonement? This was not like other Christian music artists, sticking to their own personal praise. This was a guy who was delving deeply into the Word, yet doing so in the hip hop format. What a concept!
