The premiere episode of The Rob Bell Show aired on OWN yesterday (Dec. 22). The show, featuring author and pastor Rob Bell, was highly anticipated by the Christian community; Bell’s past works had many wondering what message the pastor would convey. 

 

Bell is the author of “Love Wins,” a book that gained attention and criticism for suggesting that the current Christian interpretation of Hell and eternal punishment may be wrong. Several notable evangelical pastors distanced themselves from Bell’s teaching but the pastor gained a new audience in Oprah Winfrey fans. 

 

The Rob Bell Show’s premiere featured a message based on Colossians 1:20 and focused on “the reconciliation of all things.” Relevant Magazine writes that “it sounded a lot like a Sunday morning sermon.”

 

Bell’s hour-long show pointed people with painful pasts to Jesus. Bell’s ultimate point was that Jesus is is “the reconciliation of all things.”
