U2 frontman Bono was featured on the "Today Show" for a segment called, "Open Book With Jenna Bush Hager," a new reading literacy series, and he took the opportunity to share the Christian literature he and his family read.

"When I'm busy on the road I love books I can dip in-and-out of. A friend of mine is a great poet and also a prison chaplain, he and his friend they put this book together," Bono told Bush Hager of LifeLines, a book written by Martin Wroe and Malcolm Doney, two Christian men.

"It's a book about faith but it's not strict or in any sense sectarian or specific ... If you're interested in opening up that side of your life, your spiritual life, I would read it," he recommended.

As a child, he said he read Chronicles of Narnia and books like it. For his own children he shared they read mainstream books but on their book list is a translation of the Bible.
