repainting faith

This past weekend, the Grand Rapids Press published an interesting interview with Rob Bell regarding Velvet Elvis. It’s worth a read.

  • that guy has no idea what he’s talking about. does HE have huge waterfalls in the middle of HIS church? i doubt it.

  • Bam

    Interesting ripples of controversy Rob’s book is creating among the Christian community. If anybody has time to skim through some of the voluminous critiques on Amazon, you’ll see what I’m talking about. I guess that I’m not really surprised by this turmoil due to the hippie nature of Bell’s teaching-style, but this book has definitely pushed some people’s buttons. Anywho…maybe I’ll have more to say about it after I get a chance to read it.

  • Kind of sad actually. That user review is a really great idea, and a wonderful place for anyone to offer their opinion and critique of someone’s work. I read it all the time for different thinks I’m considering buying from Amazon. Unfortunately, what has happened there is a complete abuse of what it is there for, and it has turned more into a critique of the critiques, and it seems inappropriate to me.
