Bob Dylan is coming to town…

In honor of Bob Dylan coming to my area of the country, I thought I would re-post a piece by Malcolm Gutie.  In it Gutie eruditely explores Mr. Dylan’s use of Scripture in his music.  Allusions to Scripture pervade Dylan’s songs.  In my opinion Dylan references Scripture more then most “Christian musicians” if not in quantity, then in range of Scripture alluded to.  Gutie narrows this down to focus on the way Dylan uses Scripture to remember and recall parts of his live.
