Hey folks, sorry about the lapse in my writing. I can't seem to get into a rhythm with it. But, anyway, back to the books I am on now. I was going to write up The one by Anne Rice but I loaned it to a friend so we'll move onto Bono!
Now if you know me at all you would know I am a HUGE U2 fan and really just a fan of the members too. My brother gave me my first U2 tape when I was in 7th grade and I have been hooked since. I read most anything that comes out about them and had the thrill of my life when my husband Greg surprised me with concert tickets in Seattle last April. Not better then my wedding day, but close!
So back to the book. It is Bono in conversation with Michka Assayas. It is now my favorite collection on the band and the man Bono. Great depth into the circumstance of the bands start, about their families and interesting background (the whole protestant/catholic/Ireland thing). I learned a lot about Bono's father and his family which seemed very sincere being its from his own point of view.
Also the book covers Bono's political viewpoints and hopes for a better world - the burden for Africa and the passion to end poverty. I was impressed by just the intensity in which he speaks on the projects and charities he is involved in. I would want to mirror that in my Christian walk.
The last thing that made it worth while was the chapters in which he shared his relationship with the Lord. I am not saying that his views are mine all the way but the debate as to his belief and relationship with Christ seems confirmed for me from the what I have read. I think he does know the Lord and that he understands the saving grace of Christ Jesus. But I would love for those of you who are fans to read this book and decide for yourself.
Well, that wraps it up for this one, thanks again for all your support and interest.
