Editors Note U2 is widely hailed as the greatest rock and roll band in the world, and lead singer Bono is often seen in the media touting humanitarian goals. Now Christian Scharen provides a thoughtful look at the driving force behind the band. Bono and other band members are marked by the Christian faith of their Irish backgrounds. Scharen reflects on how U2 "fits within the longer Christian tradition of voices that point us to the cross, to Jesus, and to the power of God's ways in the world." He explores the music's honest spiritual questioning, making comparisons to figures such as King David, St. Francis of Assisi, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Dorothy Day. Music lovers, pastors, and anyone on the path to God will value this book.
