Rob Bell

Former Mars Hill Bible Church (Michigan) pastor Rob Bell sparked crowds of imitators with his brief Nooma videos from 2002 to 2009 and published several popular books, famous for their broad margins and his elliptical writing style. His 2011 book Love Wins, however, became not only a mainstream bestseller but one of the Christian world’s most hotly debated issues of the year, as the megachurch pastor challenged traditional Christian beliefs on hell and the Cross.

Instead, he surfs the waves near Hollywood and has teamed up with the goddess of pop theology, Oprah Winfrey.Exchanging his evangelical bona fides for the blessing of Oprah may yet prove to be his most unforgivable sin, at least in some circles. Which is not to say that Bell cares very much what anyone says these days.
