prophets of a kind

I intially saw it on a blog by rosie hartnell, but then found the original of this HTDAAB review by Brian Draper, lecturer in contemporary culture at the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity. Excerpt: Christians used to debate passionately whether U2 were really 'one of us' or not. ...It's easier to see now, however, that this was a band ahead of its time, with a songwriter attuned to both the changing culture and the tensions felt - but rarely voiced - by many Christians. ...For those caught between the somewhat black-and-white theology of charismania and the dusty religiosity of the established church, U2 were, and still are, prophets of a kind.
