Overview "The one thing, on which we can all agree, is that God is with the vulnerable and poor. God is in the slums and in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them. 6,500 Africans are still dying every day of a preventable, treatable disease, for lack of drugs we can buy at any drug store. This is not about charity, this is about Justice and Equality."
This small book, based upon the speech given by Bono at the 2006 NPB, delivers an inspiring and powerful message. Here, in Bono's own words, is a reflection on his own faith and a challenge to people of all faiths to reach across boundaries and come together on behalf of what the Scriptures call "the least of these."
Community Description You might know him as a world-famous musician with the band U2, but Bono's biggest achievement may be in the Christian community---where his powerful challenge to the church to not be lulled by politics has made many believers re-examine their faith. Features his 2006 National Prayer Breakfast remarks, a concise action guide, and photos. 64 pages, hardcover from W.

Reviews - What do customers think about On the Move?
A great reminder Mar 19, 2007
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.
A Beautiful Book Mar 17, 2007
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.
