Rob Bell was once the pastor of a megachurch in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and was saluted by one newspaper as “the next Billy Graham”. Today, he is more likely to be found on stage at a stand-up comedy club in downtown Los Angeles than in a pulpit.
Ed Thornton interviewed Bell for this week’s issue of the Church Times, and we post the full interview here, much of which didn’t make it into the paper.
Rob Bell brings his Holy Shift Tour to the UK and Ireland from 2 to 14 of July. The tour is being organised by Greenbelt – for tour dates and to buy tickets, visit www.greenbelt.org.uk/rob-bell. Tickets are only available from the Greenbelt website in advance, not from the venues or on the night.
