The only thing I don’t like about this new book is that I didin’t write it. I’ve been thinking of this for years and I’ve been calling the Boss the most highly paid theologian in America since Divinity School. Alas someone beat me to writing this. But my idea for a book of sermons based on the Springsteen catalog still lives, at least for the moment.
The good news, pun intended, is that the author of The Gospel According to Bruce Springsteen is a Unitarian Universalist minister from Massachusetts named Jeffrey Symynkywicz. And yes, in case you’re wondering, I emailed him and asked for an autographed copy. I mean this is the Boss we’re talking about, the book is by a UU. I had to.
You can listen to Rev. Symynkywicz talk about the book on NPR’s Weekend Edition here.
