How Faith Has Affected Bob Dylan’s Music

How Faith Has Affected Bob Dylan’s Music | LifeZette

“Dylan said in a 2014 interview with AARP. He then quoted a line from “Amazing Grace” — “that saved a wretch like me.” What may have become a rote, feel-good song for many was a reminder, to Dylan, of personal sin and salvation.

This comment, not long after a 2009 Christmas album puzzled some fans, simply communicated the sentiment that the gospel was a given. In an interview for the release of “Christmas in the Heart,” Dylan remarked that he was a “true believer” after the interviewer observed that his rendition of “O’ Little Town of Bethlehem” sounded like it was delivered by a true believer.”
