Controversial author and former pastor Rob Bell appears to have moved completely away from John 14:6 if a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times is any indication.
"And I think for many people, spirituality, religion, God, Jesus, whatever has been trivialized. I think we're way beyond one particular religion; we're about 'What does it mean to be human?'" Bell says.
The focus on the human experience over pursuit of God and the supernatural—also known as humanism—is a step further than the universalism argument Bell presented in Love Wins.
"Do you ever feel like you're skimming the surface of your own existence? Like you have more options and technology and places to go and things to do than ever and yet it feels at some level like you're missing out? Like you're busy, but it's not fulfilling? That's why I've written How to Be Here, to help us live like we're not missing a thing. Because that's what we all want, right—to feel like we're fully present, here and nowhere else, creating a life worth living," according to the book website.
