U2 And The Religious Impulse by Scott Calhoun


Original Title: U2 And The Religious Impulse

U2 and the Religious Impulse examines indications in U2's music and performances that the band work at conscious and subconscious levels as artists who focus on matters of the spirit, religious traditions, and a life guided by both belief and doubt. U2 is known for a career of stirring songs, landmark performances and for its interest in connecting with fans to reach a higher power to accomplish greater purposes. Its success as a rock band is unparalleled in the history of rock 'n' roll's greatest acts. In addition to all the thrills one would expect from entertainers at this level, U2 surprises many listeners who examine its lyrics and concert themes by having a depth of interest in matters of human existence more typically found in literature, philosophy and theology. The multi-disciplinary perspectives presented here account for the durability of U2's art and offer informed explanations as to why many fans of popular music who seek a connection with a higher power find U2 to be a kindred spirit. This study will be of interest to scholars and students of religious studies and musicology, interested in religion and popular music, as well as religion and popular culture more broadly.

Commentary On Romans by William G.T. Shedd


Original Title: Commentary On Romans

ÒTo promote the critical and doctrinal study of this important portion of the New Testament,Ó the author, a leading evangelical theologian of the late nineteenth century, wrote this commentary on Romans. He intended it for use primarily by Òtheological students and clergy....Ó The Greek text (that of Lachmann) is printed at the top of each page of commentary. The notes themselves are concise and bear strictly and directly upon the word or clause. They are primarily critical and philological, although at times the author examines in detail the theological import of the text. This is particularly true in chapter 5 (where the doctrine of original sin is discussed), chapters 7-8 (indwelling sin), and chapters 9-11 (election and reprobation). The author held the Epistle to the Romans to be Òin reality an inspired system of theology.Ó

Perfect by Ellen Hopkins


Original Title: Perfect

What would you give up to be perfect? Four teens find out in the New York Times bestselling companion to Impulse. Everyone has something, someone, somewhere else that they’d rather be. For four high school seniors, their goals of perfection are just as different as the paths they take to get there. Cara’s parents’ unrealistic expectations have already sent her twin brother Conner spiraling toward suicide. For her, perfect means rejecting their ideals to take a chance on a new kind of love. Kendra covets the perfect face and body—no matter what surgeries and drugs she needs to get there. To score his perfect home run—on the field and off—Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back. And Andre realizes that to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never understand. A riveting and startling companion to the bestselling Impulse, Ellen Hopkins’s Perfect exposes the harsh truths about what it takes to grow up and grow into our own skins, our own selves.
