The Bible and Popular Music: The Bible lurks in the background of Western civilization and modern culture, sometimes making a bold appearance and sometimes only recognized by the initiated. Why is this? This course will focus on the role of the Bible in/on popular music. We will explore the use of the Bible as inspiration and content in music by many artists, including Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, The Grateful Dead, Leonard Cohen, Regina Spektor and more.
