The author is clearly a music fan, and his excitement about U2 is contagious. Rock music fans who have ever wondered if their faith and musical taste could ever be paired will be intrigued by U2's story and Garrett's theological analysis of the band's music.
"Greg Garrett's book doesn't just speak to the U2 faithful, and his smart, sincere, and serious search through the layers of U2 meaning has made me a different kind of fan." Patton Dodd, author, My Faith So Far: A Story Conversion and Confusion
Garrett...writes with the humility of genuine affection 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
