Rob Bell has something in common with President Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, Prince William and House Speaker John Boehner.

Julie Hoogland of the Grand Rapids Press

writes that the Grand Rapids preacher, and those other big names, all made "Time" magazine's 2011 list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Also on the list: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and Kate Middleton.

"Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution."
