9780007556182: What We Talk About When We Talk About God: Faith for the 21st Century

Rob Bell’s bestseller ‘Love Wins’ tackled subjects church leaders have been afraid to touch. Now he asks the biggest question faced by any Christian: how do we know God?

Although 2000 years of Christendom has seen huge changes in our broader understanding of our place in the world, belief remains rooted in archaism and tradition. Rob Bell believes we need to drop our primitive, tribal views of God and instead embrace the God who wants us to reach the potential within us; people who understand their universe of quarks and quantum string dynamics, but who recognise our fundamental need for stories of heroes and sacrifice and profound longing for a guiding force larger than ourselves.

‘What We Talk About When We Talk About God’ will reveal that God is not in need of repair to catch him up with today’s world, so much as we need to discover the God who goes before us and beckons us forward. A book full of mystery, controversy, and reverence, ‘What We Talk About When We Talk About God’ promises not to disappoint.
