Bob Dylan and 60s religion

After listening on Saturday morning to a Radio 4 programme considering the importance of Bob Dylan, I’m reminded of Hugh McLeod’s recent observation on the quasi-prophetic status given to Dylan, in his recent book on the religious crisis of the Sixties. He only raises the point briefly, but there is much work to be done on the gradual widening of the sphere of ‘religiously significant’ music to include pop.
See my review of McLeod’s book, in Reviews in History.
