Religious Nuts, Political Fanatics

Has anyone else read this book? It's by Robert Vagacs and it's subtitled, "U2 in Theological Perspective". It's a very interesting and somewhat challenging read (it started out as a post-grad dissertation). I'd love to discuss it with others. Anyone out there?

Is it for sale on Amazon.com? I bought some U2-related books on there last week and it wasn't mentioned.

BTW, where did you hear about the book? I saw it mentioned on the U2 sermons blog, but got the (mis)impression that it was yet to be published...

I read about it at U2 sermons as well, and ordered it from the publisher.

Hey Biff – I read about it at u2sermons.blog too. I intend to purchase it at some point. In the meantime, we could discuss some parts? If you would maybe summarize or scan a few interesting sections?

So.... This has now been available on Amazon for weeks. Has anyone else purchased it yet? I'll probably have to re-read it now, it's been so long (and my memory's so short! )
I'd still like to discuss it.
