Kirk Franklin’s life was hardly built on a firm foundation. His father abandoned the family. His mother also abandoned Kirk, and constantly told him he was an unwanted child. He was adopted by his 64-year-old Aunt Gertrude at the age of four. His sister became a crack addict. He never saw a black man who was faithful in marriage. Without a blueprint, he struggled mightily yet managed to triumph even more mightily, dedicating his life to helping others find hope during hardship.
With The Blueprint, he provides an inspiring blend of God and grit to deliver real-world words of wisdom on provocative topics including:
The true definition of manhood
Deadbeat dads, divorce, and other sources of despair in family life
Why faith that only takes place in a church is dead
The consequences of sex and the responsibilities of parenthood
His own identity as a son, father, husband, singer, and African-American
What it means to be a “Christian moderate with swag” in the 21st century
"One of the biggest superstars in gospel....Franklin revolutionized gospel with his hip, contemporary sound." (Jet)
"Once again, Kirk Franklin takes the church beyond the traditional, transitioning his life's experiences into life lessons. Clearly there is more to this man than great music. You will feel the beat of his heart and faith." (T. D. Jakes)
