Steve Turner on music and the arts

One of the things I'm looking forward to at the U2 Academic Conference is hearing Steve Turner's address. Here's a recent interview with him where he discusses the integration of a Christian worldview with one's art, the Beatles, and how "Christ didn’t die to make us religious, but to make us human." Don't skip the article, but here's the U2 content:

As to [understanding the Christian gospel well enough to present it fairly], the best example is what U2 has done. I think the gospel impinges on all that Bono writes. I think he presents us with a picture of the whole of life as he experiences it and because he is a believer we get to see life in the 21st century [in the] West as experienced by a believer.
