Here's an excerpt (notes omitted):
"In his autobiography, Chronicles: Volume One, Dylan tells his readers about his own intellectual development and the books and writers he had read in the early stages of his career in Greenwich Village. These books, though not treatises on theology, and their writers, not always Christians or sympathetic to the cause of Christ, are works and thinkers that were immersed in, shaped by, reacting to, or influenced the formation of the Christian narrative.What is the Christian narrative? It is, in its broadest terms, a story of betrayal, separation, and redemption that has a beginning, a middle, and an end. It is a linear history that began at some finite point in the past and is destined to end at some point in the future, the eschaton. Specifically, the Christian narrative is the story of humanity’s relationship to God, humanity’s separation from God, the reconciliation of one with the other by means of the death and resurrection of God’s Son, and His eventual return and the establishment of his Kingdom on earth."
