Read full description of the books:
As a young Jewish musician, Bob Dylan faithfully explored the roots of modern American music-the spirituals and gospel songs. It is not surprising Dylan's words, both in his songs and in his interviews, have often touched upon biblical themes. From his apocalyptic expressions onstage and in the studio, to his unapologetic biblical views that leak out during interviews, the public record of 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: The Spiritual Journey of Bob Dylan 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.
