Overview

Restless Pilgrim: The Spiritual Journey of Bob Dylan by Scott M. Marshall

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.

This book, in a revealing and honest way, portrays Dylan for who he is today: a Jewish guy who -- after searching his soul -- understands and accepts Jesus Christ as the messiah that his faith has been hankering after. His 'conversion period' of 1979-1982 was just the beginning of his journey as a Christian pilgrim, as an examination of his concert playlists and interviews profess. The book is uplifting and spiritual without pandering or sounding preachy. It just is what it is.
