I’m about halfway through the book about the spiritual life of U2. It’s an interesting read, especially since it weaves in both lyrics and interviews. It seems that Bono, The Edge, and Larry all became Christians while in their teens in Dublin, Ireland. Adam remains the only spiritual free agent.
At times the author sounds more like a fan than an observer but it hasn’t detracted from the book. One angle that I’m most interested in is how art and faith co-exist and how U2 has chosen to be more missional in their approach to art.
The author uses the term “Christian ghetto” to describe the sometimes restrictive environment of the corporate church. Hmmm.
