Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalog

Have anyone, seen, heard or read this book? Is it good? Worth to buy? What's it about? More than U2 obviuosly.

I own it. But whether or not you like it depends on your tastes, specifically your spiritual tastes. It's a lot of commentary on God, Jesus, the Church, social justice, etc., etc., and it's relationship to U2, their songs, a song, a line in a song, etc., etc.

So if you're into that, you'll be into this.

I got it a month ago, but I really have not had the time to really get into it. Hope to soon.

Something like "Walk on: A spiritual journey"?

It's a series of sermons submitted by various priests, ministers, etc that have been at least partially based on U2 songs. It also has discussion guides for them. I have it, although haven't gotten aroudn to reading it yet. The author is Beth Maynard. She's got a blog on it up as well. She's obviously a big U2 fan, but also an Episcopal (I think) minister.
