Just curious if anyone has read this? Link

I've very much looking forward to Heylin's Trouble in Mind and noticed this title while searching for it. Searched and saw a couple mentions on this book but no real discussion on it.

I can't be of much help, as I've bought the book and haven't had time yet to read it!

However, the same author published a book some years ago, 'Restless Pilgrim', which I remember as quite good. The reviews of the new one on Amazon seem fairly positive. The author is reported to have interviewed quite a few people connected with Dylan's religious life. I'd venture it's a good investment.

I was wowed by the first half, but the portion that covers the NET and later years is a recap of religious songs Bob sang and religion things he said in interviews. I didn't read anything I wasn't already familiar with, but I'm a NET enthusiast; also, I haven't much interest in reading biographies of Bob, so I can't tell whether the first half uncovers much.

The section about the gospel period was excellent. I finished that part feeling awfully sympathetic for the guy.
