None whatsoever. Lisp is a programming language. bash is a POSIX
compliant command shell, which uses the syntax of the original Bourne
shell (with fairly typical GNU humour, bash stands for Bourne Again
SHell). bash has a builtin scripting language, again backwards
compatible with bourne shell scripts, which has NOTHING at all in
common with Lisp.

ENOPARSE (== I can't really understand what the above words mean)
elisp is the syntax of Lisp which is used to write extensions for
Emacs. If you're using elisp, you more or less have to use emacs. But
this has nothing to do with bash.

There's an O'Reilly book on Gnu Emacs and one on the bash shell. It's
very hard to go wrong with O'Reilly books (I personally don't much like
the Nutshell series, but I gather lots of people do).
