The details of Bob Dylan's Christian journey are complex and difficult to understand. This album has been regarded by the secular press as an important album and it is an intriguing listen from a Christian perspective too. This is Dylan's Pilgrim's Progress. It is a journey from being "Love Sick" and having the "Dirt Road Blues" lo the "Highlands" of the heavenly kingdom. It is an album about feeling the dual pulls of heavenly and human love when those you love do not share your trust in God. The album is by turns apocalyptic, then grim, humorous and then grim again. "Make You Feel My Love" could easily be speaking of the Messiah's love for mankind. It could just as easily be a song of deep and never-ending human love. It depends on where you are standing. I guess. This album is not easy listening (there is too much human pain for that) but its riches are revealed with each subsequent hearing.
