Spiritual Journeys: How Faith Has Influenced Twelve Music Icons
Book DescriptionWhat?s the deal with Lauryn Hill and God? What?s with the outlaw preacher persona of Johnny Cash? What about Moby?s shout-outs to Jesus? Nowhere else do faith and art intermingle so fluidly than in the ever-changing stream of popular music. For today?s music-lovers, the influence of traditional religion is waning. The institutional church is fighting to remain RELEVANT. But personal spirituality and faith, particularly the kind espoused by our cultural icons are asrespected and interesting as ever. In the cultural conscience, pop stars replaced preachers. SPIRITUAL JOURNEYS looks deeper into the issue by exploring the spiritual lives of a dozen of the most intriguing members of our entertainment culture. From Bono to Beyonce, P. Diddy to T-Bone, it surveys the fasinating intersection of faith and art, from the fresh perspective of a new generation of spiritual seekers.
