Since the early 1960s, music fans have found Bob Dylan's spirituality fascinating, and many of them have identified Dylan as a kind of spiritual guru. This book, written by a scholar who is a longtime fan, examines Dylan's mystique, asking why audiences respond to him as a spiritual guide. This book reveals Bob Dylan as a major twentieth- and twenty-first-century religious thinker with a body of relevant work that goes far beyond a handful of gospel albums.

Michael J. Gilmour is Associate Professor of New Testament and English Literature at Providence College in Manitoba, Canada. He is the author of Gods and Guitars: Seeking the Sacred in Post-1960s Popular Music and editor of Call Me the Seeker: Listening to Religion in Popular Music.

"In the fifty years since Bob Dylan became Bob Dylan, his music has been asking hard questions--and finding powerful answers--about life, love, faith, and justice. Now Michael Gilmour faithfully listens to and thoughtfully writes about Dylan in a way that brings those powerful answers to life. {i>The Gospel according to Bob Dylan is a book for anyone who knows good music can teach us about what really matters." Greg Garrett, author of We Get to Carry Each Other: The Gospel according to U2 and The Other Jesus
