The Robcast Podcast
Rob Bell is the host of The Robcast podcast. He recently completed a brilliant and impactful 5-part series on his podcast which he dubbed “Alternative Wisdom”.
In this multi-part series, Rob identifies and discusses issues that have persisted and swirled around in my head for years. Issues like insecurities, not feeling worthy enough, and wondering what life is all about.
Rob has a warm and casual way of taking all these pressing topics of the human experience, laying them out on an examining table, and offering up bits of wisdom that allow for a whole new perspective to arise in relation to these common and shared struggles.
A Real-World Approach To Spirituality
If any mention of Jesus makes you immediately recoil in a defensive posture I completely understand but please try and stay open here. I still stay at arm’s length from any hint of religious overtures as well but organized religion is the furthest thing from Rob’s approach to spirituality.
Rob is not about archaic institutions, blindly alleging to archaic dogma, or obediently biding his time until the promise of some glory bound afterlife can be delivered. He is about enriching this current life we live, free from the traps of big box religion.
Rob views and uses the Bible as a collection of timeless stories written and compiled by human beings who are trying to make sense of life.
Rob interprets these stories to give people a different way of living outside the usual human experience which is often plagued with judgment, fear, and insecurities.
He is providing an entirely new approach to spirituality, practical spirituality, in a world overrun by impractical and outdated institutions.
This “Alternative Wisdom” series is compelling, highly entertaining, and chocked full of moments that will stop you in your tracks, uttering “a-ha” as the light bulb goes on in your brain. Stay open and enjoy the ride that Rob welcomes you on. This is Rob Bell at his finest.
