This book is very well written, it provokes a different lense for viewing what may have been U2's thoughts while making some of the best music of all time. A Christian lense.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I MISSED THE JOKE I GET IT NOW!
I've been an avid u2 fan since I found my brother's copy of BOY. There is not a teenage memory without a U2 song attached to it. U2, THE ALARM,MIDNIGHT OIL,SIMPLE MINDS, all these groups actually led me to the saving GRACE of JESUS CHRIST. But here and now I must make a confession in front of the whole world. I wrote the band off in the 90's. I was one of the narrowed minded who thought the band had 'left the kingdom through the back door.' I didn't get the joke, I didn't get the irony and sarcasm of the ZOOROPA tour or the POP tour for that matter. This book opened up my eyes and ears to songs that now actually speak to my heart and spirit. I never heard the line ..'the SPIRIT moves in mysterious ways..' in the song of the same name because I was too busy being judgemental. This book had me scrambling through u2 lyrics and seeing lines i had completely overlooked. Maybe I couldn't see them because of the forrest in my eye. Even though I still find Bono to be a genius and a fool(all in the same interview!) this book showed how much a man of God he really is, and I look forward to long conversations with him in the Kingdom. Please read this book if you to (was that to cheasy?) wrote the band off, they with PETER GABRIEL and JOHNNY CASH are the best spiritual musicians out there.Was this review helpful?
