One Step Closer

I recently finished the book One Step Closer: Why U2 Matters To Those Seeking God.. It was a very good book and I enjoyed reading the book. He went through many of the songs that U2 has done and how they deal with many issues that people are concerned about and how it wraps around into our faith as Christians. There were some songs in the book that I did not know the history of and that was fun to learn about.

Here is how the book breaks down:

Step One

1. Singing Scriptures
2. Psalms as Thanksgiving and Lament
3. Wisdom as Desire and Illusion
4. Prophecy as Judgment and Hope
5. Parables as Offense and Mercy
6. Apocalypse as Ecstasy and Healing

Step Two

7. Singing the Cross
8. Faith (Not Sight)
9. Hope (Not Possession)
10. Love (Not Power)
11. Now (Not Yet)

Step Three

12. Singing the Truth

It is a very nice read and should be enjoyable for the casual U2 fan.
