A day-by-day history of U2, now in its second edition.

And the winner is…

Sorry for not posting sooner on this. I’m not online as much on weekends. Anyhoo…….

Thank you to everyone who took me up on the offer to do a five-question interview about U2 – A Diary. We ended up with 14 interviews published online, and after opening up the contest, we reached triple digits in vote count.

The winning interview?

Congratulations, Beth! That was a fun interview to do, and I think my favorite question was the last one Beth asked, about the appearance of any sermons in U2 – A Diary:

U2 Sermons: Since this blog began with a book of homiletics that drew on U2’s work, here’s my effort to make the interview on topic: Any mention of preaching or sermons in U2: A Diary?

McGee: How about this… The first mention of a sermon is about the fact that Shalom leader Chris Rowe gave the sermon at Bono’s and Ali’s wedding in 1982, despite the fact that U2 had — according to conventional wisdom — already left Shalom by then. In truth, it shows that the situation was a bit more complex than that, and that the relationships and connections still existed, even after U2 had survived its spiritual crisis and committed to staying together as a band.

Beth’s $50 Amazon.com gift certificate is already on its way, and a copy of the book will be on its way, too, once I get my hands on the book. 🙂

Thanks again to all who participated! As a reminder, there’ll be another contest soon so that people who don’t have blogs or web sites can also participate. Stay tuned for that….

    Thanks, everybody, for voting for my interview. I’m glad you all liked it. Your votes bought me a copy of another forthcoming book I’m excited about, Tim Keller’s “The Prodigal God,” which is all about Grace.
