At first called ďDylanís God-Awful GospelĒ by his most loyal fans, Bob Dylanís Jesus Years are today regarded as among the best of his career. How did a Jewish folk singer from the Midwest come to Jesus? Finally, here is an insiderís view of Bob Dylanís ďBorn AgainĒ transformation, and its effect on his life and music.
In late 1978, Bob Dylan fell into the Arms of the Lord through the Vineyard Christian Fellowship Church. In his ﬁrst-ever interview, Dylanís Bible class teacher, Pastor Bill Dwyer, details Bob Dylanís embrace of Jesus Christ and Christianity. Dylan then made three Gospel albums, winning a Grammy for Gotta Serve Somebody. However, Dylanís radical new direction alienated fans and enraged critics as he preached apocalyptic messages from the Book of Revelation.
