I think this would be a good place to start, his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC this year. You can find the transcript here

http://forum.interference.com/t153545.html

If you look through this forum there are several good articles and interviews with Bono about that subject

Check out the recent book "Bono in Conversation with Michka Assyas" (I may have screwed up the author's name there.) I'm reading it now and he frequently talks about his faith, in depth. It's the most open I've seen him talk about it. It's very inspiring.

Then check out http://www.relevantstore.com/product...roducts_id=215

Or go to www.relevantmagazine.com, click on "store" and do a search for U2.
You'll find "Walk On: The Spiritual Journey of U2."

These are where I'd start, but there's more out there. In fact, if you search for the Walk On book on amazon.com, I'm sure you'll find a book about U2 songs being used in sermons and other related books.

God bless,

coemgen

Rochelle, maybe when you're done you could post it for us to read.

http://www.ctlibrary.com/bc/2004/novdec/1.10.html

http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2002/005/14.18.html
