Get Up Off Your Knees free pdf "In a cutlure where religion belongs to the private world and pop culture to the public. We have tended to think of religion and pop culture as two areas divided by a vast chasm. On the one side, fans fear contamination of their life-giving pop culture with life-denying pulpit prognostications- on the other, preachers hark back with puritanical disapproval to the excesses of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll, 'the music of the devil." A thoughtful and provocative collection of sermons by a group of preachers from across the international church spectrum who have been moved to theological reflection on the art and work of U2. This book will appeal to fans of U2, students of homiletics, and everyone interested in the intersection of art, popular culture, and religion.

About Raewynne J. Whiteley

Raewynne J. Whiteley Raewynne is vicar of Trinity Episcopal "Old Swedes" Church in Swedesboro, New Jersey. She has a PhD in Homiletics, and has had a number of articles and sermons published. A particular area of interest is preaching and GenXers, about which she has written and taught. She grew up (in Australia) hearing her brother's U2 records playing, and recently rediscovered their music- it has become a favorite source of reflection for sermons and teaching. She is a proud owner of a New Beetle, and keeps the CD changer full of U2 CDs. Beth Maynard Beth is rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Her publications include Meditations for Lay Eucharistic Ministers, The Bread of Life, (both from Morehouse), various sermons/articles, and How to Evangelize a GenXer--NOT! (from Forward Movement). She is a participant in U2 Internet fandom, a fledgling live show trader, and a contributor to "Drawing their Fish in the Sand," an archive of U2 scripture references. She lives with her husband Mark Dirksen as close to the ocean as possible and does not own a Palm Pilot.
