Kanye West’s latest album — “Jesus Is King” — appears to be generating big cultural waves being felt on the Internet, according to reporting by Faithwire Editor Tre Goins-Phillips.
“The 11-track album is chockfull of Bible references, and according to Bible Gateway, online searches for Scripture passages and faith-based phrases in the songs have spiked since the record was released in late October,” Goins-Phillips said.
There was also a leap in searches for “What do Christians believe?” and “Jesus,” he said.
There was so much Internet activity that the American Bible Society decided to offer a free copy of the most-read book in history to anybody asking here. But wait, there is more on the jump!
