U2 frontman Bono was featured on the “Today Show” for a segment called, “Open Book With Jenna Bush Hager,” a new reading literacy series, and he took the opportunity to share the Christian literature he and his family read.
“When I’m busy on the road I love books I can dip in-and-out of. A friend of mine is a great poet and also a prison chaplain, he and his friend they put this book together,” Bono told Bush Hager of LifeLines, a book written by Martin Wroe and Malcolm Doney, two Christian men.
“It’s a book about faith but it’s not strict or in any sense sectarian or specific … If you’re interested in opening up that side of your life, your spiritual life, I would read it,” he recommended.
As a child, he said he read Chronicles of Narnia and books like it. For his own children he shared they read mainstream books but on their book list is a translation of the Bible.
“We read all kinds of things from Harry Potter to The Bible, the Eugene Peterson version of The Bible we read to our kids,” the rock star told Bush Hager.
Bush Hager is the daughter of former President George W. Bush, who worked with Bono on PEPFAR, a program to help those suffering from Aids in Africa.
