We try to stay true to album versions, rather than live versions. Most lyrics are easy to decipher, however when in doubt we visit www.u2.com
ARE YOUR BIBLE REFERENCES MEANT TO BE EXACT?
No, though sometimes the reference is obvious. Typically it's about finding allusions, comparisons, juxtapositions and thematic connections.
WHAT BIBLE TRANSLATIONS DO YOU USE?
We seek out the translation which shows the most insight or resemblance to the lyric. Our default is often the NIV.
New International Version (NIV) King James Version (KJV) New King James Version (NKJV) New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) The Message (MSG) Modern English Version (MEV) J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS) Revised Standard Version (RSV) New American Standard Bible (NASB)
ARE YOU AUTHORIZED BY U2?
No, we are fans. We only use excerpts for the purposes of analysis, review, research and education.
HOW EXTENSIVE ARE YOUR QUOTES?
Quality not quantity is our motto. We only list quotes which have a solid reference.
WHEN DID YOUR WEBSITE START?
The concept was conceived on April 25, 2015. It took over 2 years to research and create the content. In June 5, 2017, we launched as Bono The Christian. On September 21, 2019, we launched with our new name Bono's Bible. Our unique approach is linking lyrics to themes and quotes, allowing the reader to navigate their own way.
