Reviews - What do customers think about Everything Is Spiritual?
Get ready to take it in Jan 27, 2008
If you're expecting a Nooma video, this isn't going to be it. This is over an hour. Lengthy, heavy, meaty, and will leave you chewing for a while. If you haven't been to one of his seminars/sermons (I find these much more intellectually stimulating than the 40 minutes I endure each week at my own church), I recommend you Google occasionally for a tour date.
No discussion book. You won't need one. You may need to see it more than once to let everything sink in. Rob goes over Genesis, gives a Hebrew 101 lesson, looks at physics and quantum physics, string theory, discusses the difference between the spiritual, the physical, and where humans fit in. The notes are artfully included in the DVD. He also brings together the reason for Shabbat (the sabbath) as originally intended and how we have slipped away from living as Human Beings and reverted back into Human Doings. He reminds us that Jesus never used the word "spiritual" and that there was no separation in the Jewish religion between secular and sacred life and how modern Christians have created a modular life between the two.
Highly recommended for those exploring faith.
Strangely applicational Nov 12, 2007
Who would have thought that a lecture on Creation stories and Quantum Physics would be so instrumental in conveying the truth of a holistic perspective of spirituality?
As one who has been trying to introduce the perception of spirituality being interwoven with every facet of life, I would say that this DVD is far more effective in conveying that message to audiences unfamiliar with the concept than I realized. Though, I feel the subject could have been presented more effectively in my perspective, it would seem that once again, this beloved speaker finds resonance with his audience; leaving them in the lap of revelation.
I'd say that Nooma is like a piece of candy and this is like a steak dinner, yet somehow the Nooma videos tend to pack a little more punch and cater to more discussion. This is sort of done when it's done. The discussion will happen, but unlike the Nooma DVDs, this DVD doesn't come along with a discussion guide.
Brilliant stuff. Excellent revelation as one would expect. Yet I write as one who has been anticipating this for nearly a year and a half, so it might be that my expectations were overly titillated.
In person, it was outstanding Oct 11, 2007
I obviously haven't seen the video yet, but Rob Bell was typically amazing in this presentation. He walks through the creation account, explaining its significance for today - dabbling in particle physics, quantum physics and a few humorous tangents on the way.
Rob Bell (dressed out in black), a white board, and a black dry erase marker - definitely good for 2 hours of entertainment.
