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. Now, on the heels of their latest studio^album No Line on the Horizon, comes this engaging and informative examination of the spirituality^that drives the band and its music.

^The author, who as a teen interviewed the fledgling band on their first U.S. tour, takes us from^their upbringing in war-torn Northern Ireland, to their dominance over the music scene in the^early 1990s, and then to their role as spiritual ambassadors to post-9/11 America. Throughout^we get a picture of the spirituality that flows out of U2's music and how their influence has^spread beyond music into issues such as AIDS activism, debt relief for developing nations, and^the crisis in Darfur.
