Reviews - What do customers think about Gods Arent Angry?
Well Done and Challenging. Thank You, Rob Bell. May 20, 2010
Rob Bell does an amazing job of weaving historical narratives and Christian and Jewish literature together with contemporary questions about faith and what it means to be a follower of Jesus in a pluralistic and postmodern culture. Whether you are a Christian already or a person who is genuinely seeking answers to life's toughest and biggest questions, you will find this video presentation to be refreshing and challenging. In particular, Bell spends time exploring some current hypotheses and questions about Christianity, not the least of which is its seeming parallels with other (Pagan) religions. Bell makes a much needed contribution in practical theology and understanding with "The God's Aren't Angry." Don't miss it.
Should be required viewing for humans Feb 10, 2010
A lot of the reviewers here says this is not as good as Everything is Spiritual. If your main goal is apologetics or to connect physics to Christianity, then maybe they are right. But if your goal is to understand the historical roots of the need for a savior and to live out a joyful, God-filled life, this is the better film. I recommend both, because they both blew me away. This made me cry and love God even more.
Brilliant May 15, 2009
Brilliant! I so enjoyed this teaching by Rob Bell. He is a wonderful communicator of the Word and the heart of God. This teaching is fundamental as its what separates us from all the other religions out there. We have a God that is knowable and wants to communicate life and interact with us. Why would you want to serve any one or anything else. Good job Rob!! This is a DVD to own!
A Sermon on Steroids May 3, 2009
Walking out of the downtown LA theatre, I turned to my friend and said, "I'm buying this one." He nodded, "me to," he whispered; and it was then that I realized... my friend was behind me and I was talking to a stranger.
For those of you who know some of the drama surrounding the message of this particular tour and those who stood outside and protested Rob's event - all I can say is...theologically unfounded. The people who put down Rob Bell and criticize his books have not properly taken the time to do a thorough study of his teachings and have not looked into what he truly believes. Mr. Bell holds the Greek and Hebrew scriptures in the highest regard and it is his fresh approach to these ancient texts that has caused thousands of young pastors to begin their own journeys away from out dated seminarian approaches.
Or perhaps you just want a cool video to watch where a man dressed in black sits on a fake stone altar and tells you stories of cavemen, well then this is for you to.
See, it has something for everyone.
I liked it. Apr 19, 2009
As a fan of Rob Bell, the purchase came naturally- and I was not disappointed. I've seen it 2 or 3 times now and have always caught something I'd missed previously- it's not as 'deep' as "EIS" but offers some great ideas.
