Bob Dylan's spirituality explored in new biography

(HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) — “I’m sure it hasn’t been an easy trip,” author Scott Marshall says of the legendary singer’s faith explored in the upcoming book, ‘Bob Dylan: A Spiritual Life.’

While poetic singer-songwriter Bob Dylan became an icon of the 1960s with songs like “The Times They Are a-Changin'” and “Blowin’ in the Wind,” both of which became anthems for the civil rights and anti-war movements, his music is as relevant today as it always has been.

At least that’s one thesis promoted in the upcoming book Bob Dylan: A Spiritual Life, written by Scott Marshall and due June 20 from BP Books. The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Marshall, who argues that to appreciate Dylan’s influence on pop culture you must first understand his views on Judaism, Christianity and all things spiritual — which is no easy task.’
