Book Of Yeezus: New Bible Book Replaces God With Kanye West?

Jonathan Franks

The Book of Yeezus might seem like a controversial title of a new Kanye West album, but it's not.

It's actually the title of a newly reworked version of the Bible book of Genesis. What is the big difference between the traditional version of Genesis and The Book of Yeezus? Every mention of God in this new version was replaced with Kanye West.

"If the Bible, the most singularly significant publication in the ancient canon of western tradition, were updated to reflect our modern society, what would it look like?"
"The Book of Yeezus is a creative vision...that details the story of Genesis–for the new age. In its foreword, we explore our culture's state of religiosity and its capacity for wonder. How does spirituality, an evolutionary reflex, manifest in a digitized world? Why does Kanye West take such outsized significance in the lives of many?"

Kanye West has yet to comment specifically on The Book of Yeezus and whether or not he approves of the publication being released.

However, plenty of other people are talking about it for one reason or another on Twitter.
