What's the deal with Lauryn Hill and God? What about Moby's shout-outs to Jesus? The outlaw preacher persona of Johnny Cash?
Nowhere else of 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 as respected and interesting as ever. In the cultural conscience, pop stars have replaced preachers. Why?
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, this book surveys the fascinating intersection of faith and art, from the fresh perspective of a new generation of spiritual seekers.
