I discovered by accident the other day that Bono is included as the final chapter (because it's chronological) in the book Finding God: A Treasury of Conversion Stories. The brief section has a simple biography, and then an excerpt from the Michka Assayas book which will likely already be familiar to readers, in which Bono recounts a mystical experience he had while sitting behind a pillar in Dublin's Anglican cathedral on Christmas Eve.
