One Step Closer: Why U2 Matters to Those Seeking God

By Christian Scharen

From Publishers Weekly
Perhaps the most popular and influential rock group to espouse Christian ideals without getting sidelined as “Christian rock” is the Irish band U2. Scharen (a Lutheran pastor and instructor of practical theology at Yale) points to the many biblical, theological and spiritual themes found in U2’s lyrics to explain why this band “matters to those seeking God.” And he does so elegantly, offering the heartfelt and intelligent musings of a fan while also acknowledging the band’s wild and worldly bent.
