More About What We Talk about When We Talk about God by Rob Bell
 
 
 
Overview

New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell, whom The New Yorker describes as one of the most influential Christian leaders in the country, does for the concept of God what he did for heaven and hell in his book Love Wins He shows how traditional ideas have grown stale and dysfunctional and how to return vitality and vibrancy to lives of faith today.

Pastor Rob Bell explains why both culture and the church resist talking about God, and shows how we can reconnect with the God who is pulling us forward into a better future. Bell uses his characteristic evocative storytelling to challenge everything you think you know about God. What We Talk About When We Talk About God tackles the misconceptions about God and reveals how God is with us, for us, ahead of us, and how understanding this could change the entire course of our lives.

Bell's (Love Wins) signature sermonic style, studded with stratified paragraphs, moves the reader comfortably along. However, behind his easy-to-read approach is a deeper sensibility, a heavier theological hand, than in any of Bell's previous works. While in the past Bell has questioned traditional views on sex, sacrifice, and hell, now he tackles the big one: God. He writes of "waking up in new ways to the God who's been here the whole time," a divine being who is with, for and ahead of humanity so that a jaded generation of "spiritual but not religious" may see Jesus, and divinity, in all things. As always, his work is replete with unexpected stories, relevant pop culture references, and new takes on old scriptures; Bell is finally certain about his ontological uncertainty. Undoubtedly, conservative readers will find much to argue with, and Bell seems content with that, hoping that for many others, this book will be a welcome breath of fresh air in a spiritual haze.
