Bono the Evangelist

In an interview published in his new book, Bono in Conversation, Michka Assayas reveals that U2 front man and globetrotting awareness raiser, Bono, has some very strong statements about Christ, grace, and the nature of salvation. As someone who has been uncharitably skeptical of the Irish superstar, I'm as pleasantly surprised as most heterodox priests are with Pope Benedict. Here's one of several truffle quotes:

At the center of all religions is the idea of Karma. You know, what you put out comes back to you: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, or in physics-in physical laws-every action is met by an equal or an opposite one.

And yet,along comes this idea called Grace to upend all that. . . . Love interrupts, if you like, the consequences of your actions, which in my case is very good news indeed, because I've done a lot of stupid stuff.
