This study analyses the work of Nick Cave, a singular, idiosyncratic and brilliant musician, specifically through his engagements with theology and the Bible. It does so not merely in terms of his written work, the novels and plays and poetry and lyrics that he continues to produce, but also the music itself. Covering more than three decades of extraordinarily diverse creativity, the book has seven chapters focusing on: the modes in which Cave engages with the Bible; the total depravity of the worlds invoked in his novels and other written work; the consistent invocation of apocalyptic themes; his restoration of death as a valid dimension of life; the twists of the love song; the role of a sensual and heretical Christ; and then a detailed, dialectical analysis of his musical forms. The book draws upon a select number of theorists who provide the methodological possibilities of digging deep into the theological nature of Caves work, namely Ernst Bloch, who is the methodological foundation stone, as well as Theodor Adorno, Theodore Gracyk and Jacques Attali.

About the Author:

Roland Boer is Research Professor at the University of Newcastle, Australia. His most recent book is Marxist Criticism of the Bible (2003), and his research is mostly focused on the intersections between biblical studies and critical theory.

Review:

'Boer tackles Nick Cave's work with a discipline and love that I, as a fan of both men, am grateful for.' Barry Taylor, Fuller Theological Seminary, Imaginatio et Ratio: A Journal of Theology and the Arts, Volume 1, Issue 2, 2012 'The book will continue to inspire both scholarship about Cave and about the place of the obviously religious in the performances of popular culture.' Literature and Aesthetics, 2013
