Watch Bono and Eugene Peterson Talk About The Psalms

@U2, April 26, 2016
By: Sherry Lawrence


Bono joined Pastor Eugene Peterson to chat about the Psalms for a short film for Fuller Studio, a new e-resource by Fuller Theological Seminary. Filmed last April, the almost 22-minute documentary debuted on YouTube today. The conversation took place at Peterson's home in Montana ahead of U2's launch of the Innocence + Experience tour. Bono references his earliest memories of the Psalms, the violence in Dublin in 1974 captured in "Raised By Wolves," and his affinity toward the psalmist. Bono said, "The psalmist is brutally honest about the explosive joy that he is feeling and the deep sorrow or confusion, and it's that that sets the Psalms apart for me."

The documentary explores Bono and Peterson's friendship, which was fostered at the start of the millennium when Bono sent Peterson a video thanking him for his The Message translation. Angela Pancella interviewed Peterson for her @U2 Connections article in 2002, where he admitted he wasn't able to meet with Bono at the time. Since then, Peterson and his wife Jan traveled to Dallas in 2009 for a three-hour lunch with Bono and took in the U2360 show. Scott Calhoun shared some of the documentary's behind the scenes stories on the @U2 Blog.
