The Gospel According to U2

In his book We Get to Carry Each Other: The Gospel According to U2, Greg Garrett, author and English professor at Baylor University, plumbs the U2 catalogue to reveal the group's theological worldview. He adeptly illustrates that the group has been one of the most consistent and outspoken on issues of social justice and that U2's message encourages listeners to put faith into action for the sake of the poor and marginalized. Professor Garrett is clearly a music fan, and his excitement about U2 is contagious.
