Geez Louise, it's no joke.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Dylan#Religious_beliefs

Religious beliefs
Growing up in Hibbing, Dylan and his parents were part of the area's small but close-knit Jewish community, and in May 1954 Dylan had his Bar Mitzvah.[268] However, for a period during the late 1970s and early 80s, Bob Dylan publicly converted to Christianity. From January to April 1979, Dylan participated in Bible study classes at the Vineyard School of Discipleship in Reseda, California. Pastor Kenn Gulliksen has recalled: "Larry Myers and Paul Emond went over to Bob’s house and ministered to him. He responded by saying, 'Yes he did in fact want Christ in his life.' And he prayed that day and received the Lord."[269][270]

By 1984, Dylan was deliberately distancing himself from the "born-again" label. He told Kurt Loder of Rolling Stone magazine: "I've never said I'm born again. That's just a media term. I don't think I've been an agnostic. I've always thought there's a superior power, that this is not the real world and that there's a world to come."[271] In response to a question from Loder as to whether he belonged to any Church or synagogue, Dylan laughingly replied, "Not really. Uh, the Church of the Poison Mind."[271]

Since his trilogy of Christian albums, Dylan's faith has been a subject of scrutiny. In 1997 he told David Gates of Newsweek:

Here's the thing with me and the religious thing. This is the flat-out truth: I find the religiosity and philosophy in the music. I don't find it anywhere else. Songs like "Let Me Rest on a Peaceful Mountain" or "I Saw the Light"—that's my religion. I don't adhere to rabbis, preachers, evangelists, all of that. I've learned more from the songs than I've learned from any of this kind of entity. The songs are my lexicon. I believe the songs.[6]

In an interview published in The New York Times on September 28, 1997, journalist Jon Pareles reported that "Dylan says he now subscribes to no organized religion."[272]

Dylan has been described, in the last 20 years, as a supporter of the Chabad Lubavitch movement[273] and has privately participated in Jewish religious events, including the bar mitzvahs of his sons. Subsequently, Jewish news services have reported that Dylan has "shown up" a few times at various High Holiday services at various Chabad synagogues.[274] For example, he attended Congregation Beth Tefillah, in Atlanta, Georgia on September 22, 2007 (Yom Kippur), where he was called to the Torah for the sixth aliyah.[275]

Dylan has continued to perform songs from his gospel albums in concert, occasionally covering traditional religious songs. He has also made passing references to his religious faith—such as in a 2004 interview with 60 Minutes, when he told Ed Bradley that "the only person you have to think twice about lying to is either yourself or to God." He also explained his constant touring schedule as part of a bargain he made a long time ago with the "chief commander—in this earth and in the world we can't see."[27]

In August 2009, it was announced that Dylan would release an album of traditional Christmas songs, and donate the royalties to combatting hunger.[276]


I know Bob was born into Judaism and converted to Christianity for a while, but after listening to that sampler from his "Christmas Album," all I can say is...OY VEY!

Yeah! Stone....

This is yet another bizarre chapter in the life that is Bob Dylan. But if it's for charity, well, fine by me.

I for one have no intention of buying or listening to this offering at all. The fact that these may be familiar songs will not entice me in the least. His voice is gone and I am not wasting my time listening to him plod and stumble though well known and respected tunes.

I might be interested in it if it had contemporary arrangements and instrumentation, but it's VERY traditionally arranged, and I'm just not very traditional these days.
