Active Christian Bono has announced the release of a short film about the Bible Book of Psalms.
The U2 star made the movie in collaboration with author of The Message Bible, Eugene Peterson.
The 20-minute film ‘Bono and Eugene Peterson: The Psalms’, is set in Peterson’s Montana home and in New York’s gallery for the International Arts Movement. It follows a conversation about the book of Psalms as the foundation of their friendship.
The singer became friends with Peterson after they met in 2010 during the band’s 360 tour. During the film, Bono explains that the Psalms inspire him and they should be the blueprint for church songs.

Film producer David Taylor said: “Our hope is that as a result of watching the film, people will be curious or inspired to read the Psalms themselves and to discover this remarkable book of poetry in Holy Scripture that has captured Bono and Eugene’s imaginations.
“Their conversation at the Peterson’s home in April 2015 represented their second time to meet and it proved to be a very lovely afternoon together. “The film will connect with fans of U2, fans of Eugene’s writing, church and lay leaders, artists, worship leaders, and folks involved in the intersection between faith and culture.”
