"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."
Rob Bell is not...

"Rob Bell has received a great deal of criticism in his career for a variety of reasons. Some might have some merit, but most come out a desire for him to be something he is not. He is not a world class Biblical Scholar; he is not the greatest theological mind; he is not a person that will champion conservative ideologies, nor liberal. If you desire any of these things from this man, do not buy his work for you will be disappointed.
But if you are looking for a thoughtful person engaging with faith, culture, and life, then you might have found someone that will really speak to you in a refreshing confession of Christian faith.
Rob Bell is a pastor with a heart for humanity. He is a person that desires to unite, rather than divide. He is a person who recognizes the burden of our society and addresses them in faithful ways and "Everything Is Spiritual" is a wonderful testimony of God at work within Humanity.
I was blessed to watch this. And I trust that those who have ears to hear will come away from this experience moved in profound ways."

"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."
Rob bell 's teachings are amazing

"I was at the taping of everything is spiritual event and was amazed with Rob Bell's teaching. My family has been waiting a long time for it to be available on dvd. There is so much to it that we could not recall it all when trying to explain to friends what it was about. I highly recomend this dvd. I have heard him preach a few times and just saw his new tour the gods aren't angry,(once again, we are wanting the dvd now) I am always suprised by how I get a new perspective on a passage I have read over and over, never quite looking close enough at it to gain further understanding.His knowledge of Jewish customs and history adds value to his teachings. This is well worth the money. also, check out his NOOMA dvds they are excellent as well."
