I learned about the existence of this book on Facebook, and I thought lightly, "how interesting, I think I will read it."

I have always felt close to the music of U2. I have enjoyed listening to U2 since the band began some 35 years ago. I have never attended a U2 concert in person, but I have listened to U2 endlessly on the radio in my car, on television, online, on iTunes ... singing along loudly to my favorites (when no one else can hear, lucky for them, smiles). U2 has been interwoven into the fabric of daily life, but mostly through the charismatic sound of the band's music.

Imagine my surprise at discovering the Christian roots of much of the band's lyrics, and the sophisticated dialogue and discussion underway therein. I agree with author Steve Stockman there is a "depth of soul" beneath U2 songs. "They are never about just entertainment or display." But until I read this book, I was unaware of the true nature of that "depth of soul."

Not new to me are the good works of the band and its individual members. I have been a volunteer for ONE and (RED). I have inherently trusted Bono and the band when it comes to critical issues - and the proper course of action - regarding poverty, debt relief, AIDS, corruption and more. Bono, who once remarked wryly, "... me that most awful of inventions, a Rock Star with a Cause," is nonetheless someone I have come to trust.

"Walk On" is an intense book. It is exceptionally well-documented and covers a wide range of topics, from the band's roots, the times in which we have both lived (and survived), and Ireland to musical influences, scripture and the lyrics (and deeper meanings) behind many of U2's songs. "While most bands set out to get famous, get laid, and get rich, these were not the goals of the Christian-hearted U2." Yet I find it refreshing that U2 is not hypocritical. They respect those with different opinions. Stockman remarks, "Bono's respect for the atheist is refreshing. Many believers distance themselves from those with differing views on God, sometimes even within different churches. Bono makes them his friends and then makes himself accountable to them."

"U2 may have often had their heads in the sky, but their feet were always very much in the mud." I love that about U2.

Stockman notes at the book's conclusion, "This is why the Church needs Bono. This is why everybody needs Bono. He is willing to take what he believes and the world around him, and wrestle with them and not let them go."

Walk On was an absolutely fascinating read! In fact, it was so good I'm going to read it again. I have been a distant fan of U2 since my early teens (I'm 30 now). By "distant" I just mean that I haven't followed their life and music as closely as some fans have (at least not too far beyond their earlier albums). I did purchase a copy of "All That You Can't Leave Behind" and I think it is now probably one of my favorites (along with October, The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree)!
I have always found some inspiration in the life and music of U2. Such a statement bothers some Christians and that is precisely why they need to read this book. One of the things I have always most admired about these guys is that they are real and they often wear their hearts right out on their sleeves... There are some very deep, inspiring, contemplative, introspective and sometimes questioning themes that flow consistently through the lyrics of U2's songs. In fact, I don't know of one album that U2 has released that didn't express some facet of spirituality in one way or another.
"Walk On: The Spiritual Journey of U2" presents an intimate look into the lives of a group of true believers who are not playing games with anyone. They don't make excuses for their imperfections or try to cover up their frustration with the condition of the world and how few, especially ...Most Christians who can't get past the sight of a cigarette, a beer or the sound of a cuss word, will have trouble seeing the honest heart of a guy like Bono who is as sincere and devout as they come!...Bono once made the statement in an interview that the reason he is attracted to the Scriptures and figures like Christ is because he is not like them and wants to be; he is drawn to that power greater than himself that can change a man's heart and actions. He admits his weakness but knows the source of this power; God. He is also very inspired by the grace of God. This is wonderfully illustrated in the song by the same name on U2's latest release.
However unorthodox the bros in U2 seem to the rest of Christendom, these guys are very sincere and very plugged in to God (in fact, I would dare say they are seeking harder and desiring that intimate connection with the Lord than probably a lot of Christians who attend churches today are). This book will be a refreshing eye opener to people who have had questions about these guys and whether or not their faith is real. It will answer some questions for fans as well as give those unfamiliar with the band a proper introduction to who these guys are. I think that especially those believers who have expressed criticism towards U2 need to read this great book. I found it very inspiring and challenging to my faith.
In consideration of the song "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," I believe these guys are still searching, but not for God. They have found Him. What they are searching for is an honest expression of truth by those who profess to know Him. An expression of truth that is more than merely words professed, but actions demonstrated. One might also consider this song in respect to 1 Corinthians 13 (the line, "I have spoken with the tongues of angels..."), where love is the only thing that really matters. Bono seems to be expressing that he has experienced the "things" of God, but desires more; to be captivated and completely motivated by love. These guys have not walked away, they are determined to "Walk On!"
I highly recommend this book! It will be most meaningful to those who are at least remotely familiar with U2's music, but I think even someone who doesn't know much about them at all will find a number of insightful gems in this great title.

This one of the most inspiring books I've ever read. I've been a U2 fan almost from the beginning, and when many other "Christians" criticized them and turn their backs on them for their outlandish, "ungodly" behavior, I continued to support the band and to draw inspiration from their music. I've never doubted their faith, and this book shows me that their actions as well as their music speak of a deep-seated desire to help others. Isn't that what Christianity is supposed to be about? I thought I was a pretty devout Christian til I read about all that Bono has done and continues to do, to try and make a difference in this world. He is one of the most "godly" men I know of in that he definitely "walks the talk". This book relly made me want to go out and try to make a difference in the lives of others. I would (and have) recommend this book not only to U2 fans, but to anyone who feels the need to stir their faith into greater action.

U2 Fans: Purchase "Walk On" Now. This book feels like a companion to my "Elevation" DVD's. And, those are a classic.
Passages From "Walk On" can bring tears to even the most cynical eye. You will weep with sorrow, (When you learn how the Boys' spiritual home pushes them away}. *And,* weep also with joy - Faith abides! Grace tramples over impediments, ('What can I give back to God, for the blessing He poured out on me?...'} I couldn't stop reading "Walk On." Bono's spiritual seach shines as a central Sacred PASSION within his Soul.
This book will force readers to ponder the meaning of Faith, & its relation to 'Social Action.' It MIGHT also get ya to talk to God again.
::::::: God Is In The House: More Than Elvis :::::::
If you enjoyed "Elevation" you will love this book. It is Emotionally charged & wholly powerful. This book will let you see U2 in a fresh way.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Very Nice Histroy of U2s Spiritual Music. 2 de abril de 2002

I have been a U2 fan since around 81 and I noticed the Biblical references and concepts floating around in there songs right away. I though, wow finally a secular group writing some spiritual songs. I listened to a lot of Christian Contemporary Music back in those days, and I felt it was geared for the believer, and was not reaching others. But, U2 was and is cool and they were saying the spiritual things in a cool way, much like the Apostle Paul did back in the Acts.... He would learn how to deliver the gospel message in the language and symbols of each people he was dealing with. I think U2 and Bono have done more to spread the Gospel then all the "Christian" artists combined. U2 is delivering the positive message in our vernacular of Today. Steve Stockman does a nice job covering the history of U2's uses of spiritual references in there songs. The book is well written and riveting. He also outlines there personal spiritual journeys, How and where U2 (3 members) found God, why and how they change the act but still maintained the message, and how they are still relevant today. U2 is probably the most impotent massage band in rock history and its great to have a book like this to delve into there thinking. This is a must read for anyone interested in U2's spiritual songs.
