“The Bonofication of Christianity”

Don’t miss this podcast of Dr. Jeff Keuss and Nigel Goodwin as they discuss Bono and his influence on Christian culture.

With the release of The Joshua Tree, U2 reached rock fame. But more significantly, perhaps, Bono emerged as a prophetic voice in culture and in the church. He once said of his Christian faith: “It is what gives me the strength to get up every day and put forth a hundred percent of my energy.” Bono’s influence on faith and culture has been immense and host Dick Staub explores the impact on this podcast with the assistance of our esteemed guests.

Dr. Jeff Keuss is Associate Professor of Christian Ministry at Seattle Pacific University, where among other things he teaches courses in Theology and Popular Culture. He received his PhD at University of Glasgow where he served as a Senior Lecturer of Practical Theology and Director for the Centre for the Study of Literature, Theology and the Arts.

Nigel Goodwin is a British actor and founder of Genesis Arts through which he has invested his life in serving the artistic community in its quest for making better art.
