“The Bible and the guitar were reciprocally essential to Marley’s musical message that he spread throughout the world via relentless touring.”
—Excerpt from the forthcoming book by Dean MacNeil
Marley would often retreat to his home in the village of Nine Mile, St. Ann Parish, Jamaica, where he farmed, wrote music, and studied the Bible (Davis, 69).
