The Heretic is an original documentary about the former pastor of Mars Hill, Rob Bell. Rob Bell rose to fame in West Michigan as he began preaching at Mars Hill church and started a series of short films that were spiritual reflections on life.
Being from West Michigan, I was very interested in seeing the story of the once adored, and now often despised, Rob Bell. As his theology changed, the evangelical right began to shun him, the left began to accept and embrace Rob Bell. The story presented in The Heretic is interesting.
Watching Rob Bell, Pete Holmes, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Gilbert (of Eat, Pray, Love fame), and others share their thoughts on faith and Bell’s journey was interesting. It was also depressing.
