Rob Bell has sparked no
shortage of controversy with views and proclamations
that some believe are anti-Christian in nature.
now fans and critics, alike, will have the chance to
hear more from Bell, as he's the focus of a new
documentary titled, "The Heretic." The film releases
on March 1 on Amazon and on iTunes, as RELEVANT
noted. The trailer for "The Heretic" quotes Bell
saying a variety of things that are sure to attract
attention. Here are just two bits:
"When I kept going into
the Jesus teachings, it took me beyond a religion to
what does it mean to be human. And I actually think
Jesus would be absolutely mortified that somebody
started a religion in his name."
"The Bible has caused so
much damage "
Bell took to his Facebook page on Thursday to note
that he was approached a few years back by a
filmmaker named Andrew Morgan. Morgan wanted to make
a documentary about Bell's work and Bell obliged.
"We have great respect for Andrew so we said yes and
he began filming tours and RobCasts and events and
interviews I can't imagine
just how much footage he captured," Bell said. "The
result is a new film that he is preparing to
release. It's called The Heretic."
