Faith and Theology: Travelling outside karma: U2's Grace

Thanks to Ben for letting me know about the reflection on U2's "Grace," and more specifically on its guitar line, that he just posted. Coolest sentence in the thing, IMHO: "Even when Bono begins for a moment to lapse into a kind of vocal works-righteousness, with his too-strenuous repetition of the final line, the guitar riff continues undisturbed, so that the small vocal flaw is sublated and transformed, caught up and carried on the gentle rhythms of grace." Also, here's one for our readers; a commenter asks in response to Ben's words: What do Bono and Barth have in common?
