Oprah Winfrey will interview  bestselling author Rob Bell on a new episode of “Super Soul Sunday”  today (Sunday, Nov. 3) on her Oprah Winfrey Network, OWN.

Bell and Oprah are set to talk about his latest book “What We Talk About When We Talk About God” and discuss why more and more people are identifying with spirituality over religion.

At 28, Bell founded Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan, which became one of the fastest-growing mega-churches in America.

“While his progressive interpretation of the bible has been embraced by many, it has also become a point of contention for others, as it considers new ways of thinking about religion and spirituality,” the OWN network noted in its news release about the episode. 

Several years ago, I spoke with several religious leaders here in the Oklahoma City metro area about Bell’s book “Love Wins: A Book about Heaven, Hell and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived,” which was the source of controversy at that time.

If you miss the episode’s premiere, check back later because OWN typically airs these episodes several times.
