Who among us has not experienced hearing a song that moved us deeply, that spoke to us in a truly spiritual way? Millions of fans around the world have found that inspiration in the music of U2, arguably the biggest band in the world today. This engaging and informative book examines the spirituality that drives U2, a band whose influence has spread far beyond music and whose songs encourage listeners to put their faith into action for the sake of the poor and marginalized.

Garrett...writes with the humility of genuineaffection and gratitude. If you care at all about the role of music in western Christianity today,you'll want to read this book.--Phyllis Tickle, author, The Great Emergence--How Christianity is Changing and Why
"Greg Garrett's book doesn't just speak to the U2 faithful, and his smart, sincere, and serioussearch through the layers of U2 meaning has mademe a different kind of fan."Patton Dodd, author, My Faith So Far: A StoryConversion and Confusion
The author is clearly a music fan, and hisexcitement about U2 is contagious. Rock music fanswho have ever wondered if their faith and musicaltaste could ever be paired will be intrigued byU2's story and Garrett's theological analysis of the band's music.
