Love, Bread, and Spaceships with Rob Bell

Love, Bread, and Spaceships with Rob Bell December 4, 2023

In this new episode of the show, I got a chance to speak with New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell about seeing the world as a temple, humanity’s big “Why?”, and the art of storytelling.

Rob Bell

Rob Bell is a bestselling author, international teacher, and highly sought after public speaker. His books include The New York Times bestsellers What Is the Bible?, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, Love Wins, as well as The Zimzum of Love, Velvet Elvis, Sex God, Jesus Wants to Save Christians, and Drops Like Stars.

He also happens to be one of the best communicators on the planet.

At age 28, Rob founded Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan, and under his leadership it was one of the fastest-growing churches in America. In 2011, he was profiled in Time Magazine as one of their 100 most influential people.

You can pick up a copy of Rob’s latest book, Where’d You Park Your Spaceship?. It’s simultaneously hilarious, hopeful, and terrifying. It really is an incredible read!
