Bono (lead musician of the band U2) and Eugene Peterson (84 year-old Presbyterian minister and author of contemporary-language bible translation The Message) discuss the need for followers of Jesus to embody more realism in art, music, and life. Bono asks why “Christian music” is not more like the Psalms–embracing the whole spectrum of human emotions including not only happiness, but also confusion, anger, despair, and doubt. Source: Fuller Studio
