  1. Thanks for sharing this.

    I like to affectionately say that Rob Bell and Velvet Elvis ruined my life….in a completely good and needed way and that Sex God sent me even further into the ruins.

    I can’t wait to get a hold of Jesus Wants to Save Christians. I attempted to check it out at a local bookstore here but I had a difficult time because of another customer. You can read the experience here ( if you wish. It was one of those “I think I’m getting punked” moments.

    At any rate, my life, the way I think, react, teach…live is very different thanks to Rob Bell.

  2. yeah velvit elvis ruined my life too.

    in a good and needed way

    but in a way that results in still, many sleepless nights.

    thanks rob, keeping the masses from sleeping, i hope YOU sleep well at night.

  3. Thanks for this, Zach…I am just working my way through the new book. Bell kind of ruined me, but that was after McLaren really screwed me up. It was all so safe before I met them…

  4. I remember when I got VE. I intended to just glance at it before going to bed, and couldn’t put it down. I read straight through it, one of the best books.

    Thanks for putting this interview out there. I noticed that the two of you brought up a couple of “mind blowing” books. Could you post some details on those? I looked on Amazon for the War of Art, but found several different books by that title. I’d really love to plug into some of these resources if you’d publish the info. Thanks.

  5. Wow, thanks for sharing this interview. It always interests me to hear how the Bell Man works out his thoughts. The degree to which pastors “play it safe” is so true. I wish pastors felt more enabled to toss hand grenades into the audience more often than they do. By the way, can you list some of those book recommendations you two were talking about? Thanks.

  6. The book I think I referred to was a Ken Wilber book Rob recommended to me several years ago. It’s called “A Brief History of Everything.” But pretty much anything by him will seriously mess you up, in the best way possible.
