Counting down through the Top 10 Best Bob Dylan Books …
by Scott Marshall with Marcia Ford
From his apocalyptic expressions onstage and in the studio, to his unapologetic biblical views that leak out during interviews, Bob Dylan’s spiritual journey makes for a fascinating story. A curious icon of popular culture, yet distinct in his Judeo-Christian expressions, Bob Dylan doesn’t fit neatly into the typical rock ‘n’ roll mold. Who else would have the chutzpah to publicly contribute to Orthodox Jewish communities while publicly singing songs about Jesus’ crucifixion, resurrection and eventual return? RESTLESS PILGRIM wrestles with the seemingly contradictory facts of Dylan’s preoccupation with Jesus and his own Jewish heritage, by looking through the lens of this reluctant legend’s four-decade career.
