Collegiate disciples of Bruce Springsteen will soon be able to enroll in a theology class devoted to the New Jersey legend. The state’s own Rutgers University is offering a semester-long, freshman seminar that will cover Springsteen’s entire discography and lyrics, and how they can be viewed from a biblical perspective. Professor Azzan Yadin-Israel, a Jewish studies and classics specialist, will lead the class.
On this episode of the Rock it Out! Blog, Sami invites Yadin-Israel to detail the course’s curriculum and preview some of the tasks that will be assigned to students. As the two scholars conduct their high-brow discussion, let us know what band or artist you would love to learn about in college in our comment section down below.
