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 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 as respected and interesting as ever. In the cultural conscience, pop stars have replaced preachers. Why? This book 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.
