TIME magazine named author Rob Bell one of its “100 Most Influential People in the World” for many reasons. Listen in as Linda and her guest co-host—NYT bestselling novelist of THE SECOND SON, Charles Sailor (our April guest)—chat with this beloved author of many binge-worthy NYT bestsellers including LOVE WINS, HOW TO BE HERE, and WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT GOD. From his top-rated podcast, The RobCast; his wildly popular sermons; touring with Oprah, and performances on stages around the world, being around this husband and father of three is an addictive experience. Some would say, do say, they can’t get enough, and tap into his high-speed DSL line to the Divine as often as possible. Rob is currently on tour for his new book, WHAT IS THE BIBLE?: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything (HarperOne). By bringing dry, historical characters to life, he's forever changing people’s perceptions of this book from an outdated, primitive, barbaric collection of fairy tales to a work of surprising relevance and transformative power for modern-day living. And, what these two men have to share about the exhausting, crazy making, mind-is-always-elsewhere, death-to-normalcy act of being a writer? Oh, Lord! Guys, their experiences are a lifeline. You just might never see things the same way again. Thank heavens! Welcome.
