About the Author

Raewynne J. Whiteley Raewynne is vicar of Trinity Episcopal "Old Swedes" Church in Swedesboro, New Jersey. She has a PhD in Homiletics, and has had a number of articles and sermons published. A particular area of interest is preaching and GenXers, about which she has written and taught. She grew up (in Australia) hearing her brother's U2 records playing, and recently rediscovered their music; it has become a favorite source of reflection for sermons and teaching. She is a proud owner of a New Beetle, and keeps the CD changer full of U2 CDs. Beth Maynard Beth is rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Her publications include Meditations for Lay Eucharistic Ministers, The Bread of Life, (both from Morehouse), various sermons/articles, and How to Evangelize a GenXer--NOT! (from Forward Movement). She is a participant in U2 Internet fandom, a fledgling live show trader, and a contributor to "Drawing their Fish in the Sand," an archive of U2 scripture references. She lives with her husband Mark Dirksen as close to the ocean as possible and does not own a Palm Pilot.


Like a cross between a hermeneutical 'capture the flag' and a theological 'Where's Waldo?' Chicago Sun-Times They offer a welcome portrait of what's possible when you have three chords and the truth. Books and Culture I wouldn't be at all surprised if after you read a few of these sermons you'll be hungrier for a more meaningful life. -- Scott Calhoun, What I want to holler is the great news that this book, these sermons inspired by the lyrics of U2, really is a fine collection. Get Up Off Your Knees simply cannot be summarized. Each sermon deserves its own critical and prayerful engagement. -- Byron Borger Coalition For Christian Outreach Whiteley, Maynard, and company have created a book that could have been subtitled 'A Brief Look at Christianity for Novices'. You might not know the theological jargon, but if you're a U2 fan you probably have experienced the sorts of things these writers were taught about at their divinity schools. -- Angela Pancella, It will stretch you, inspire you, make you think-but perhaps most important, bring you to prayer in an active and engaged way... Raewynne and Beth have put together a beautifully concise, but well argued rationale for meeting God in popular culture, and provided some ideas of how to go about helping us do it. -- Mary Hess Luther Seminary
