Here’s a fascinating interview with Rob Bell of Mars Hill Church in Grand Rapids, MI, on the topic of preaching.
If you’re not familiar with Rob, you should be. Whether you agree with him or not, his thoughts should be considered.
He is one of the most unique communicators of the Scriptures these days. He speaks from parts of the Bible that most pastors steer away from, like Leviticus and Lamentations. He builds bridges between deep theology and relevant preaching. He approaches the Bible faithfully while also taking into account the literary forms and artistry of the text.
