Although I had been raised in New Jersey, it had nothing to do with deciding to attend Douglass College Pre-Med at Rutgers University. I chose Rutgers for its high academic reputation and standards. And, was introduced to an unknown Bruce Springsteen who came to perform during his college circuit. He bowled us over with his energy and average guy/working class songs.
I was online looking for the exact year he performed at Rutgers, when this course appeared. I read the title several times before it sunk in that this course referred to the same Bruce Springsteen I have come to revere since Rutgers.
But, a "theologically oriented approach to Bruce Springsteen's lyrics"? Huh?
Bruce Springsteen's Theology
01:090:101 section 70 index 16799
The following is an interview with Professor Assan Yadin-Israel who teaches this seminar.
News of the seminar has spread worldwide, the Professor receiving mail worldwide about it.
But "has not heard from Bruce Springsteen's camp so far."
I have to say, now that I've watched/listened to this interview, I can understand the Professor's pov and would be interested in taking it myself.
p.s. Although this interview was conducted in 2013, the seminar is still being offered at Rutgers as of 2015.
