MSNBC’s Martin Bashir On His Aggressive Interview With Rod Bell

Get Religion has a good post on an surprising aggressive interview with Rod Bell and his new book on Hell (or the lack thereof of anyone going there). See A palatable, comfortable Christianity?

I would very much suggest listening to the PODCAST where Bashir is interviewed.

This has caught my eye for several reasons. First we have a mainstream secular journalist that actually seems to get Religion. A person that is not asking the popular softball questions.
He did his research!

As he mentions the issue here is truth telling and that is essential to good journalism.

Now one can have a debate if he was too aggressive. However it is refreshing that Bell is being pushed on his scholarship. Too me the scholarship is the issue here.
