Stadium Prophets and Psalmists

At the UCCF Theology Network site, you can download a talk called "U2: The Stadium Prophets and Psalmists" given at a recent meeting of the European Leadership Forum by Mark Meynell, a name that will be familiar to readers here from previous links. It's in PDF. Though largely on an introductory level, there are some nice stops along the way: I quite like the charts (Bono personas, U2's articulations of human experience, more) and the section on distinctions between a poet and a preacher (especially its closing comment, so a propos to this band: "of course it gets confusing when poets do start to preach."
