I have many Bruce Springsteen fans who are friends. They speak of him and of his concerts with glory in their voices and wonder in their eyes. I’ve never been blessed by him in those ways even though I have wanted to love his music. But maybe I haven’t been looking or listening closely enough.
Over at Christianity Today, Mark Moring writes that he sees Springsteen becoming a man of increasing faith.
Springsteen told The New York Times that although he’s “not a churchgoer,” his music is “filled with Catholic imagery … a powerful world of potent imagery that became alive and vital and vibrant. … As I got older, I got less defensive about it. I thought, I’ve inherited this particular landscape, and I can build it into something of my own.”
