Controversial Christian author and former megachurch pastor Rob Bell sits down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview in an upcoming episode of her spirituality-theme program "Super Soul Sunday." Bell's latest book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, has been listed as the first recommended title in "Oprah's Super Soulful Book of the Month" club.
In its announcement on the new season lineup of "Super Soul Sunday," OWN noted that Bell would be among Winfrey's many guests, alongside others like Anne Lamott, Jack Kornfield, Steven Pressfield.
"The Emmy Award-winning series 'Super Soul Sunday' delivers a thought-provoking, eye-opening and inspiring block of programming designed to help viewers awaken to their best selves and discover a deeper connection to the world around them," reads the press release from Winfrey's network.
The network has not yet shared the broadcast date of Winfrey's interview with Bell and a request from The Christian Post made to OWN TV regarding that information was not met by press time.
However, Winfrey has written on Oprah.com about her time talking with Bell, whose books she said opened her heart and mind.
"When Rob Bell -- pastor, best-selling author, provocative thinker -- recently joined me on the show, we talked for two and a half hours, and I could have kept going," wrote Winfrey. "The ideas Rob sets forth in his books Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God opened my heart and my mind. People like him are the reason I set out to build OWN in the first place: to be able to gather a global community of like-minded seekers."
