hello hello i’m learning Gaelic


Hello hello. It’s the U2 concert this week. So this week the blog will be U2 focused. For a start, here is an ancient post: back in April 2003.

From dawn to dusk: compilation CD of U2 spirituality
13 U2 songs intrinsic to my spirituality. With some Biblical interfaces I find provocative. No room for anything off Boy or Zooropa. It’s a reader-response compilation, ie what I the listener think of, not necessarily what the author might intend lyrically.

Streets have no name, Joshua Tree
– Genesis 1:1

Gloria, Under a Blood Red Sky
– Genesis 1:27

When you look at the world, All that you can’t leave behind

October, October
– Isaiah

Wake up Dead man, Pop
– Lamentations

One, Achtung Baby
– Jeremiah 31:31-34

Grace, All that you can’t leave behind
– John 1:14

Promenade, Unforgettable fire
– Colossians 1:20 (Message)

Still haven’t found, Joshua Tree
– Philippians 3:7

40, War
– Romans 8:19

Pride (In the name of Love), Rattle and Hum
– Matthew 22:39

Sunday Bloody Sunday, Under a Blood Red Sky
– Isaiah 65:17

Yahweh, Vertigo
– Revelation 21:1

  1. Christian Scharen just wrote a book on the theology of U2’s music. The title is ONE STEP CLOSER: WHY U2 MATTERS TO THOSE SEEKING GOD (Grand Rapids: Brazos Press, 2006). A great book!
