I posted the following interview on my Facebook page last week, but since I was out of town I did not take time to post it here. Frankly, I was amazed at the forthrightness of Martin Bashir. I encourage you to take a few moments to hear Bashir's questions and Bell's responses. Then, I encourage you to take the time to listen to Paul Edwards' interview of Martin Bashir here.
Martin Bashir’s Superb Interview of Rob Bell
Perhaps you have wondered, as I, whether Martin Bashir is an evangelical Christian. It was not only Bashir's knowledge of the issues that struck me but also his evident passion to get to the truth of the matter. Yesterday, while in New York City we attended Redeemer Presbyterian Church (at 2 West 64th Street, NYC) we noticed an announcement of an upcoming event next Monday concerning a conversation between Tim Keller and Martin Bashir (see here). This prompted a thought. I wondered whether Martin Bashir attends Redeemer Presbyterian Church. So, after returning home, today I did a little research that confirmed my hunch. Bashir does, in fact, attend Redeemer and he is an evangelical believer. However, listen to the full interview below to hear Bashir’s explanation of why he interviewed Bell as he did. He is interested in the truth.

Here’s the audio of my interview with MSNBC’s Martin Bashir on his interview with Emergent Universalist Rob Bell of Mars Hill Church in Grand Rapids. Martin discloses whether or not he is a committed Christian and if the blog rumors are true that he attends Tim Keller’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City.
