"Walk On" revised edition

Relevant Books is releasing an updated version of "Walk On — The Spiritual Journey of U2," June 28.

It's going to have information on HTDAAB and other newer stuff. Of course, I have to buy it.

I like the cover on this version better too.

If you want to check it out or order it, go to www.relevantbooks.com and click on "Coming Soon."

Did you guys read the first version?

I wish I would've told you sooner.

That's cool you got the book though. I thought it was a pretty good read myself. The band is way more rooted in Christianity than many people think. It's interesting stuff.

The book isn't even out yet and they're offering a new deal. It's now $10.99 at www.relevantstore.com, AND you get a free six-month subscription to Relevant magazine. This is a good deal.

Here's the little blurb on the book from the site:

It’s the book everyone is still talking about. This revised and expanded version of Walk On: The Spiritual Journey of U2 tackles the issues and questions everyone desires to know about the world’s most popular rock band. Throughout Walk On, Steve Stockman follows the band from their early days in Dublin’s Shalom Christian Fellowship all the way to their most recent–and most spiritually profound–album, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. Bono has never been more outspoken about his faith and the Church than he has been in the past few years. From his involvement with fighting AIDS in Africa through the DATA organization to his quoting Psalms from the Super Bowl stage, Bono is doing God’s work in a very public and vocal way.

AUTHOR
Steve Stockman is a Presbyterian minister in Ireland where he works in the Chaplaincy at Queen’s University in Belfast. He is a regular speaker at conferences and festivals and has his own radio show on BBC Radio Ulster. Stockman has published five books of poetry and an album, Gracenotes. He has been using the works of U2 in his sermons and writings for 20 years.

Cool! I never did get the first one, but I guess it's good that I waited. My local bookstore had just one copy that I almost bought and I don't think they've ever gotten any more.

This book is horribly scripturally inaccurate and misleading. It is full of patronization of Bono and above and beyond God or Jesus Christ - which is how it makes its money. Sad.

I meant that last bit to read: It is full of patronization of Bono above and beyond God or Jesus Christ - which is how it makes its money. Sad.

(This was all in reference to the first edition. Unless the new one recants key ideas taught in the first one, it must still be a disaster.)

Is there ANYTHING about U2 that you DON'T find offensive, here? Every post of yours that I've seen has been about how evil and misleading U2 are. What's the deal?

To counter,
I find it's scripture accuracy to be fine. Sometimes it comes down to interperatation, though.
The book in no way patronizes Bono above God. Try reading it again.
