By Steve Turner
The Gospel According To The Beatles (Book WJK)


Music journalist Steve Turner, whose previous Fab Four book, A Hard Day’s Write, delves into the inspiration for each Beatles’ track, returns to evaluate the group’s spiritual journey throughout its decade-long career. In exploring John, Paul, George, and Ringo’s personal biographies, Turner discovers critical moments that shaped each individual’s spiritual leanings.
The author investigates the motivations for and aftermath of Lennon’s infamous “bigger than Jesus” comments. He also evaluates significant turns in Harrison’s lifelong fascination with Eastern religion. In contrast with their two more curious bandmates, McCartney and Starr didn’t exude the genuine interest in asking questions regarding the great beyond. In doing so, the book offers glimpses into the possible messianic attraction the group held over its global legion of admirers. Obviously, Turner indirectly considers the possible influence that the myriad substances they experimented with over the years had on their spiritual voyage.” While Turner notes that The Beatles were a collective culture unto themselves, they generally regarded orthodox religions with quite a bit of skeptical scrutiny. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the book is that it compels the reader to imagine how their beliefs fueled the music of a generation. The Gospel According to The Beatles is an excellent survey in the spiritual motivations for the four men who transformed the world.
