OWN television has just announced the premiere of its new series titled, The Rob Bell Show. The same Rob Bell who challenges the truth of the Bible and continues to influence millions of fans around the world (having just returned from a national tour with New Agers Deepak Chopra and Oprah), despite his fall from biblical Christianity. The same former pastor of Mars Hill church who denies the doctrine of a real Hell (making him a heretic in the true sense of the word). He is the author of many books pushing unScriptural doctrine including Velvet Elvis, Love Wins and his new The Zimzum of Love, giving people a “startling new way of looking at marriage.” (Bell has come out in support of homosexual marriage.)
Bell debuted on OWN for Winfrey's "Super Soul Sunday" program in Nov. 2013 to discuss his latest book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, which was her premiere pick for the "Oprah's Super Soulful Book of the Month."
(Side note: OWN stands for Oprah Winfrey Network, but Old Worn-out New-Age Network is a more descriptive for the acronym.)
Here is the video promo trailer:
From Oprah's website:
Considered to be one of America's most influential and progressive spiritual leaders, New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell shines a bright light on the topics we most want to talk about but often don't know where to begin. Through riveting conversations with a live audience and creative on-camera storytelling, Rob explores themes such as "Owning Your Story" and "Wonder and Awe" as only he can.
The special focuses on the universal desire to create a life of meaning, hope, and joy - making peace with your past, living and thriving in the present right here, right now. Whether you're spiritual, cynical, religious, or not quite sure, Rob invites you into the questions, wrestling with what it all means and why we find spiritual topics so fascinating. As 2014 comes to a close, Rob shares the tools everyone can begin using now to start the New Year off right moving forward in your life, owning who you are and becoming who you are meant to be.
In 1999, at just 28-years-old, Rob founded one of the fastest-growing churches in America, Mars Hill Bible Church, where he pastored until 2011, and he was named one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World" in 2011.
Most recently, Rob was a featured speaker/tour "trailblazer" on "Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend," Oprah Winfrey's multi-city arena tour that traveled throughout the U.S. in the fall of 2014. He is also the author of the New York Times Bestselling Books "What We Talk About When We Talk About God," "Love Wins" and more. Through his work as a bestselling author, critically acclaimed "Nooma" short film series, and recent appearances on Oprah's tour, people from across the spectrum have come to resonate with Rob's ability to compellingly engage the topics that matter most in life.
