In this clip, Fr. Robert Barron argues that Dylan is a “spiritual poet” whose work is saturated with the Bible and with the moral and spiritual traditions of Judaism and Christianity:
I’m not convinced by his interpretation of “Like a Rolling Stone”, but I do believe that his point is basically correct, even granting that Dylan is famously and exhaustingly mercurial. The argument is developed in more detail in this essay by Francis Beckwith, which appeared in Bob Dylan and Philosophy.
Incidentally, I had never heard of Fr. Barron until I encountered him one morning at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. That morning he was quietly celebrating the Mass for a handful of English-speaking pilgrims, and only later did I discover that he has quite an extensive ministry and is fairly well-known. To be honest, I still don’t know much about him, but anybody who thinks Dylan is a great singer is in my good books.
