What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This is quite simply a wonderful piece of innovative scholarship. Marley's many followers will surely be impressed with how seriously his words are treated in this book. Dean MacNeil combines a passionate engagement of Marley's lyrics with the critical eye of a serious student of the Bible."
—Daniel Smith-Christopher, Professor of Old Testament, Loyola Marymount University

"This lucid and well-researched book is a salutary example of careful and sympathetic theological engagement of an important figure in popular culture by a musician-cum-biblical scholar who knows and loves his subject."
—J. Richard Middleton, Professor of Biblical Worldview and Exegesis, Northeastern Seminary

"Dean MacNeil continues the tradition of transgressive readings of the Bible from the perspective of the subjectivized present . . . inviting the reader to engage the Bible through the lens of the modern biblical shaman, Bob Marley. As a result, the musical legacy of Bob Marley has been opened up for critical reevaluation."
—David A. Sanchez, Director of the American Cultures Studies Program, Loyola Marymount University
