T.D. Jakes Interviews Charlamagne Tha God

TD Jakes had the joy of uniting with Charlamagne Tha God for a terrific discussion of his book, #ShookOne. This conversation could empower you to conquer the inner forces that thwart your growth. Someone you know needs this. Is it you?

Charlamagne Tha God is co-host of The Breakfast Club, a popular nationally-syndicated radio show where Bishop previously appeared as a guest. He also hosts the podcast Brilliant Idiots and, like TD Jakes, is a New York Times bestselling author. Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It was his first book followed by Shook One.

TD Jakes calls Shook One “powerful”, “provocative,” and “transparent.” Its subject matter concentrates on dealing with anxiety, the effects of PTSD and how mental health issues are often overlooked in today’s culture.

Charlamagne speaks about his childhood, the environment and experiences that contributed to his anxiety and panic attacks, and interestingly, he talks about how finally finding success added to his mental health issues rather than easing them. He discusses how fear was a strong motivator, driving him to succeed, yet as soon as he “arrived”, his anxiety became more “overwhelming.”

TD Jakes and Charlamagne discuss how Christians often feel that church should be enough to address mental health issues like anxiety and depression, but there is often not a “sole spiritual antidote” for mental illness. In many cases, professional therapy is necessary to address these issues.

Charlamagne’s book Shook One is relevant, timely and honest. Watch the full discussion and be sure to subscribe to the TD Jakes channel for more enlightening conversations.

  1. I appreciated Jakes psychology. The fact that he's a man of God is secondary. It's his kindness, his considerations and observations. Christianity likes to think it has a monopoly on morals..but it doesn't. Kindness and consideration is the practice of the true religion. Christians hear all these mental triggers that Jakes drops on purpose. It's a great tool that any normal Christian would be mocked for. Submission to being taught is still the key and it's all still psychotherapy.

  2. This was a great interview. I’m not as familiar with Charlamagne (I’ve seen him in maybe two interviews), but this gave me a better portrait of him. I also appreciated Bishop Jakes’ relaxed style. I agree with others that this generational transfer was necessary and inspiring. Blessings to them both.

  3. Bro… your story is so similar to mine. And you write with such freedom and poise, amidst major noise that could have made you totally a SHOOK ONE. God bless you bro. I hope you will impact the 'Mobb Deep' with this SHOOK ONE bro… God bless you

  4. So TD Jakes says mental illness isnt a spiritual issue. So Pharisee, wat pills did Jesus giv2 th demoniac wen he was cutting himself up n th grave yard? Uv becom so diluted tht ur only useluf2 th corporate world. God says, if u make my word out2 b a lie, Il exppse u4 th liar tht u r. WOW!

  5. 2:202:30-what an open opportunity to share Christ's redemption with this man. He's hungry for change, to be free from the world's chains…say what you want, but everyone at some point in their life will face that emptiness and begin their search for more. Hopefully it will lead the person to the Cross…😊🙏. Be blessed.

  6. This is an awesome interview. I've always liked the way Charlamagne dealt with celebrities like they are real people because they are real people. I have a greater respect for him. I will keep him in my prayers.

  7. I have so much respect and adoration for Bishop Jakes. However, this interview was missing a of things as it relates to the body of Christ. Also, did Bishop refer to him as Charlamagne the God?? There is only one God and Bishop being the man of the cloth that he is should have referred to him by his real Name or Charlamagne only!!
