Bob Dylan's 19th studio album, Slow Train Coming is a result of Dylan's conversion to Christianity. The album may have alienated some previous fans but at the same time drew in countless more. "Gotta Serve Somebody" became his first hit in three years winning Dylan the Grammy award for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Male in 1980.

From Rolling Stone, September 1979:
"...A broadly drawn historical perspective is the most valid way to consider Slow Train Coming, especially if it is important to understand the old-time religion and evangelism woven into these songs. Before anyone had even heard this album, the news that Dylan was doing a little Bible reading stirred up great winds of cynicism and distrust: a kind of controversy recalling the intensity of past debates about Dylan.

"Bob Dylan has, at long last, come back into our lives and times, and it is with the most commercial LP he's ever released. Slow Train Coming has been made with a care and attention to detail that Dylan never gave any of his earlier records. The decision to take such time and care comes from a deep artistic and personal re-evaluation. He wanted — and after so many weak efforts and near failures, perhaps felt he had no choice — a commercial success. He was also smart enough to see that this thrust might even be the only road left for his return to brilliance."
