U2 mentioned in Philip Yancey's new book on prayer

Just finished reading part of it on my lunch break and he mentions that he has interviewed members of U2. Does anyone have access to this interview?

I wish! What is it called? I'm reading "What's So Amazing About Grace" right now, and it's one of the best books I've ever read. It is so true, and a wake-up call to every Believer. I know Bono loves this book, I believe he counts it among his favorites as it should be for anyone who calls him or her self a Christian. Have you read this one? God Bless! My name is Brittany and I'm 18, btw!

Can someone give me the title? Jcoster have you read "What's So Amazing About Grace?" It's my fav. book next to The Bible. Btw, I'm assuming you're a Believer? JW. God Bless!

I believe the name of the book is called Prayer: Does It Do Any Good or something like that. I don't have it with me right now.

I have read What's So Amazing About Grace and it was a very life-altering book. I was lead to it by reading the quote where Noel Gallagher said that Bono had sent him that and Reaching Out To The Invisible God also by Yancey. Its also an amazing book.

I'm going to start reading all of Yancey's books. I have to go pick up one from my college library, it's called "Rumors of Another World" or something along those lines. I read the intro. online, and I was amazed. I would suggest "The Jesus I Never Knew", also. Btw, did Noel Gallagher say that "ROTIG" was the other book? Most accounts I've read he said he didn't remember the title of the other one. I love the way, Bono tells him about the Salvation messsage "Go to God, tell him what all your flaws are, and say 'Can You work with me?" It's such a simple and non-threatening way of preaching the Gospel. I was reading Catherine Falsani's book "The Spiritual Lives of Public People" (There's a review on the Interference Homepage) and her chapter on Bono was amazing. I'm going to get it on Monday, and I'll send you some of the quotes. Do you have a regular e-mail address, b/c I'm not a premium member, so I can't use private messages. God Bless!!

I have read many books Bono has mentioned throughout his career. He is very well read with fabulous literary taste, and I have enjoyed everything he has recommended.

Is there a list somewhere of books that we know for sure Bono has read and recommended?
Thanks!

I got the new Philp Yancey book today. I LOVE it! It's yet another amazing book from one of the best Christian authors today. I'm in awe of how simple he makes things and how he always does it w/an attitude of grace. God Bless!!

Its been a number of years since I read that quote and I believe what he said was that he had received What's So Amazing About Grace and then he tried to remember the name of the other book and said a very close but slightly different idea of what he thought the title was. From what he had said, I guessed he must have been talking about "Reaching" but I could be wrong. I don't think I'd ever be able to find that original quote again but I know it involved the word "summat" which in British slang apparently means "something." It confused me because I had never heard that word before.

I didn't start it yet but as soon as I am done with Dorian Grey thats my next one. I just bought Call me the Breeze by Philip McCabe. Alot of u2 references in this book.

My reading list is:
Whats so Amazing about Grace?
The Screwtape Letters
Ground Beneath Her Feet
Call Me the Breeze.

The only problem is it takes me forever to get a chance to read!

I'll check the others out!! You'll love "The Screwtape Letters", it's one of the best I've read, and a must read for every Believer!! "What's So Amazing About Grace" was amazing!!! He mentions U2/Bono about 4 times!! The book itself was wonderful!! I'm going to check out the other 2 you mentioned now!! God Bless!!
