Here’s an article in the Houston Chronicle about Rob Bell’s “Everything Is Spiritual” tour. The reporter spoke with me about Bell. I don’t know a lot about him, and I didn’t make it to his Houston appearance.
I’m glad that people are taking the faith to the kinds of people that Jesus got criticized for hanging out with. May the Lord keep us faithful to the faith, so that we’re contextualizing the Gospel not just conforming to the spirit of the age. This is not a criticism of what Bell is doing–I don’t know enough about him to criticize him–it’s a general call for all of us to be diligent about taking every thought captive to Christ.
