    sitting in the bookstore I picked up this little book and after reading the first 4 pages in a total of 2 minsI was hooked I ponied up the money and was very thrilled to read the entire little book and add it to my library Who says that being a Social Activist is all that Bono is? The issues he deals with and his use of scripture in this book brought me to an understanding of who Bono really is It even brought me closer to Christ as I believe he has a heart for the orphaned and the widow way bigger than mine And while some may think that starvation and famine in Africa may not be our problem or may not move their heart to cause their feet to act then what planet do you live on and what exactly constitutes an OUR problem?

    Bono's given us a gift in this book the gift of insight compassion and opportunity I have often wondered what motivated a world reknown rock star to so passionately engage in enlisting aid for the poorest in our world And now I know You can read this book on so many levels; read the speech and imagine the reaction of his live audience read the speech again slowly and internalize what it means to you and look at the photos and imagine what it means to those pictured What Bono asks of us is so little yet our positive response could reshape our world Our lack of response could leave a world we should not wish on our children This book's a keeper Read it and think about it

    This is Bono's speech from the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC in 2006 The photos featured in the book were taken by Bono during his work at an orphanage in Ethiopia with his wife Ali We now see the face of the boy who changed his life foreverAll proceeds from the sale of this book go to the ONE campaign

    On the Move is a short book as it is the text of a speech Bono gave at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2006 illustrated with photos he took and that were taken of him on his visits to AfricaSay what you will about him he has used his position as the front man for U2 to help millions of people He co founded DATA Debt AIDS Trade Africa EDUN a fashion brand committed to source production from Africa the ONE Campaign which fights poverty and Product Red which engages businesses in the fight against AIDSThe main point of his speech was to encourage richer nations such as the US to commit just 1% of their budgets to help those in the poorest countries of the world He uses the commonalities of major religions Judaism Christianity and Islam all of which command followers to help the poor to appeal to the consciences of those in power Like Bono I was disillusioned at an early age by organized religion You need only turn on the TV on Sundays to see megachurches which spend millions on their buildings sound systems and TV coverage instead of doing what Jesus would be doing were he here today Religion often gets in the way of God But religions at their best can do a tremendous amount of good in the world a point Bono made in front of people of all religious and political beliefs in 2006

    On the Move is written by Bono Bono is a famous musician who plays with the famous rock band U2 Bono is known to make his stance on politics and poverty very clear Bono founded the ONE foundation with Bobby Shriver The ONE foundation focuses on making poverty history On the Move is focused in when Bono was asked politicians and faith leaders at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC This speech is focused on when he went to the mesmerizing continent of Africa In the book Bono says Love is on the move Mercy is on the move God is on the move What he is saying is that God is trying to make moves to better ourselvesI think that this book is for anyone that likes to make a change in our world if you like the band U2 then I think that this book would be great for you I also think that this book would be good for you if you like to become motivated because that's what I felt when I finished reading the book

    I wasn't interested in the text of this book and refused to buy it when it was released in 2006 because the proceeds benefited a political activism organisation But the book does have merits The text demonstrates how low Bono has sunk to achieve his sociopolitical goals Scriptures from various religious texts are uoted inappropriately alongside of and in support of blatant political agendas The result is at best tragically comic and at times nauseating So ignore the politico religiously adulterated textInstead focus on the photographs Given the hype that surrounds this book I expected photos and a coffee table size It is glossy enough but small Still these are photographs Bono took during his first trip to Ethiopia to volunteer for several months in refugee camps created by the widely publicised famine in the 1980s including on page 17 the unnamed boy who famously changed Bono's life as he likes to tell it Those stunning silver gelitan prints make the book and give it slightly purpose than unstomachable propaganda

    I was cynical Not about God but about God's politics Then in 1997 a couple of eccentric septuagenarian British Christians went and ruined my shtick my reproachfulnessThey did it by describing the millennium the year 2000 as a Jubilee year as an opportunity to cancel the chronic debts of the world's poorest people They had the audacity to renew the Lord's call and they were joined by Pope John Paul II who from a half Catholic's point of view may have had a direct line to the AlmightyBono
