In this episode of “Everything is Stupid” with Rob Bell, we’ll be treated to the incoherent meanderings of Rob Bell’s misadventures in Christian ministry and life.  

Sadly, unlike Bell’s former books, there is extraordinarily little here to even consider.  Bell’s life simply isn’t that interesting.  It’s the same old “Oh I was a pastor and I had problems with the doctrines of hell and women in ministry and so I bailed” story we have to endure from the likes of Bell and his ilk.  

Instead of thinking through these age-old doctrines and attempting to understand why they have such longevity, Bell, per the usual arrangement, dismisses them along with everyone else who lacks imagination at best and refuses to trust that we have a word from God on this at worst.   

Again, its unfortunate that there’s just not that much here with which to contend, but we’ll try to get a couple of episodes out of it at any rate. 

After all, I was forced to forfeit an entire Audible credit to have a go at Bell’s droning tripe, so we’ll try to make it worth it.
