Where did the first caveman or cave-woman get the idea that somebody, somewhere existed who needed to be worshipped, appeased, and followed? And how did the idea evolve that if you didn't say, do, or offer the right things this being would be upset, agitated, or even angry with you?

Rob Bell

Robert Holmes "Rob" Bell Jr. was born on August 23, 1970. Bell grew up in a traditional Christian environment. He attended Wheaton College. While at Wheaton, he roomed with Ian Eskelin of All Star United. With friends Dave Houk, Brian Erickson, Steve Huber and Chris Fall, he formed the indie rock band, "ton bundle". Bell received his bachelor's degree in 1992 from Wheaton and taught water skiing in the summers at Wheaton College's Honey Rock Camp. During this time, Bell offered to teach a Christian message to the camp counselors after no pastor could be found. He taught a message about "rest". He said that God led him to teaching at this moment. Bell moved to Pasadena, California to pursue this calling for teaching and received a M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary. According to Bell, he never received good grades in preaching class because he always tried innovative ways to communicate his ideas. During his time at Fuller he was a youth intern at Lake Avenue Church. He did, however, occasionally attend Christian Assembly in Eagle Rock, California, which led to him and his wife asking questions in the direction of how a new style of church would appear. Bell and his wife moved from California to Grand Rapids to be close to family and on invitation to study under pastor Ed Dobson. He handled many of the preaching duties for the Saturday Night service at Calvary Church. Bell announced that he would be branching out on his own to start a new kind of community and he would call it "Mars Hill" after the Greek site where the apostle Paul told a group, "For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you." In February 1999, Bell founded Mars Hill Bible Church, with the church originally meeting in a school gym in Wyoming, Michigan. As of 2005, an estimated 11,000 people attend the two "gatherings" on Sundays at 9 and 11 AM.[7] As of March 2011, Sunday attendance numbers between 8,000 and 10,000.[8] His teachings at Mars Hill inspired the popular "Love Wins" bumper sticker, and the congregation freely distributes these stickers after services.

Definitely makes you think
5 stars By Dan, Nov 07 2008
I'll make this brief.  This presentation was fantastic.  Rob Bell has an amazing way of telling a story in a way that is not often told elsewhere.  To think of the perspective of others and collect the undergirding themes of cultural life particularly in Old Testament / Old Covenant times and then present the way God reveals His Grace and Love...WOW.  We really need to get some perspective to understand what the message really meant to the original hearers and how amazing this GOOD NEWS was.
If you dont mind having your mind stretched a little and seeing things from a different perspective and being a little challenged - I think you'll love this.

One Great Presentation
5 stars By Darian, Nov 06 2008
 I do not think Rob Bell is saying anything that is very deep here and he is surely not presenting ideas that many Christians have not heard many times before (I would hope!). But this is one awesome presentation. 

He contrasts human sacrifice to divine grace. His point is that human rituals can not in themselves lead persons to God, only God's grace can and the realisation and acceptance of this is central to Christianity. He explains this using a narrative that stretches back many thousands of years. From a time when cavemen offered sacrifices in recognition of forces of nature that they considered gods to the current day situation of the western world where our gods are work, money etc. The Christ makes such ventures to appease the gods pointless.

"The Gods aren't Angry" will surely resonate strongly with many people- with mature and young Christians and also non-Christians. American preaching to the masses doesn't get much better than this.

Give this a miss
1 stars By Alex, Nov 05 2008
If you want to be confused about the Gospel, confused about what the Bible clearly teaches and want to immerse yourself in pure heresy - jump in with both feet (set in concrete).  

Always brilliantly presented, but with very little if any Biblical truth, Rob Bell, representing the very dangerous element of the Emergent church, should ring warning bells in any Church/Christian home, and should be avoided at all costs.  This is not a battle of opinions, but a battle for Biblical Truths, something Bell clearly does not understand.

Give this a miss... (as well as his other products)
