Dangerous Angels: Bruce Cockburn’s Prophetic Pilgrimage

 

I’ve been wanting to review Bruce Cockburn’s 2017 release, Bone on Bone for months, and then got the opportunity to write a broader piece for Sojourners that would place the new album in the broader context of Cockburn’s prophetic pilgrimage. You can read the article here for free, but just until Tuesday, April 10. After that you’ll need to get a subscription.

    Bryan, thanks for this. I have to say that “40 Years” and “Jesus Train” are songs I have gone back to again and again on the new album. 40 Years haunts me, in particular. Wilderness spirituality, prophecy, allusions to pilgrimage and incarnation. But the whole album speaks to me, song after song.
