Timothy D. Neufeld explores U2's many phases of artistic expression and cultural engagement and the band's employment of faith and activism as a foundation for success. Through close readings of their musical work and the dynamic interplay of artistic expression and social engagement, U2: Rock 'n' Roll to Change the World outlines how U2 forever changed the very musical and political culture from which it was born.
Timothy D. Neufeld is the chair of the Biblical and Religious Studies Department at Fresno Pacific University, Fresno, California, where he teaches the class Theology, Culture and U2. He has presented academic papers on U2 and is a writer for the award-winning U2 fansite www.atU2.com.
