Just released, Bono's book, On the Move, is a wonderful little presentation of his message at the National Prayer Breakfast from February 2, 2006. The speech itself is worth the price of the book, but what makes this so special is the collection of images and pictures that comes with it.

On the Move features B&W photographs that Bono took of Africans during his first trip to Ethiopia in 1986. These photos, along with other graphics, perfectly complement the theme of Bono's message. The type, the fonts and the colors do the same. It's a wonderfully creative and thoughtful collection of images, text and spirit.

The introduction features comments:

We never anticipated that once we achieved our freedom we would face another challenge of this magnitude. We cannot win this fight on our own, and we rely on people like Bono to help us beat this pandemic. -Nelson Mandela

Few people of our day are more committed to using their celebrity for the cause of the poor around the world than my friend Bono. -Rev. Billy Graham

A superstar of rock speaking at a National Prayer Breakfast in a Republican White House? How strange is that? Yet it's testimony to the effectiveness of Bono's campaigning to help the marginalized and the poor. Read this book and then act on it! -Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Please buy this book for its message, its artistry, its imagery, and because every penny of royalty is being donated to the ONE Campaign to make poverty history.

"Love is on the move. Mercy is on the move. God is on the move."

"This is what happens when God is on the move."

Format: Hardcover
This book documents the emergence of Rock superstar Bono as a major theological force in the interest of ending extreme poverty in Africa, where six thousand die of AIDS each day. He is becoming the Martin Luther King of Africa aid relief.

"There is a continent--Africa--being consumed by flames. I truly believe that when the history books are written, our age will be remembered for three things: the war on terror, the digital revolution, and what we did--or did not do--to put the fire out in Africa. History, like God, is watching what we do." This quote is accompanied by the words FREEDOM and EQUALITY repeated numerous times in the form of a map of Africa.

Bono updates Isaiah 58:9-11 to report on the presence of God in today's world. "God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both of their lives. God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war. God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them."

Bono founded the advocacy group DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa) in 2002. It is a member of ONE, the Camapaign to Make Poverty History. In 2006 he launched Product (RED) to engage businesses in the fight against AIDS. He lives in Dublin, Ireland with his wife and four children.

Bono wants the United States to give an additional one percent of its federal budget annually to end world poverty. Beside a picture of a barely clothed African child, Bono says "Where you live should no longer determine whether you live.

Bono has been commenting on Africa for the last 20 years and this concise speech puts all of his thoughts together in one beautiful, lyrical speech.

The presentation in the book is stellar and it reminded me that the true message of Christianity is in our actions and not just our words. The concept of Jubilee and the idea that we could make a difference by giving a small fraction are life changing.

Stunning pictures and great visuals backup the message and this is one book I will keep out and on display at home.

Excellent book. Bono is extremely eloquent and passionate about these ideas and the book is put together in a way to reflect this passion.

For a small book, this one packs the hugest punch of all! I knew that getting something Bono was involved with would really move me but I had no idea how much. This book should be read by every human being on the planet. 2nd behind the Bible.

His love for Africa and his passion for this country is obvious from the first page to the last. Just reading his words have inspired me to get more involved than I already am.

My prayer is that this book will have the same impact on all who read it and that we will all share it with the rest of the world.

Format: Hardcover
When Bono, the lead singer of U2, was asked to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC in 2006, no one knew what to expect. The same is true when one opens this small yet powerful book. The pages are filled with the words of Bono's speech and with photographs that he himself took on his first trip to Ethiopia in 1986.

Though On The Move is a restatement of Bono's speech, it is also a call to action. It tells the story of how Bono became involved with relief efforts in Africa and how we as Americans can bring about change on the African continent. Bono reports that America currently gives less than one percent of the federal budget to foreign assistance.

As he pointedly states, "Look at what happened in Southeast Asia with the Tsunami. 150,000 lives lost to that misnomer of all misnomers, `mother nature.' In Africa, 150,000 lives are lost every month. A tsunami every month. And it's a completely avoidable catastrophe."

Bono's words are moving and the reader will be challenged to become a part of the solution for Africa. And readers can begin by simply purchasing the book. All royalties from On The Move are being donated to The ONE Campaign.
