This week we try to redeem ourselves from our infamous Rob Bell “fanboy” episode and are somewhat successful! We had the pleasure of recording live with Rob in Dayton, Ohio on the last top of his bookstore tour. Rob had a lot of great stuff to say about his brand new bestselling book, “What is the Bible?: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything.” We dive into how we read the bible, how it’s still relevant today, and it continues to evolve.
Rob Bell is The New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins, What We Talk About When We Talk about God, The Zimzum of Love and How To Be Here. iTunes named his podcast, The RobCast, Best of 2015. He’s been profiled in The New Yorker, he’s toured with Oprah on her Life You Want Tour, and in 2011 Time Magazine named him one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. He has a regular show at Largo, the legendary music and comedy club in West Hollywood and is currently touring to support his latest book, “What is the Bible?:How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything.”
