9780062049667: What We Talk about When We Talk about God

Rob Bell’s bestselling book Love Wins struck a powerful chord with a new generation of Christians who are asking the questions church leaders have been afraid to touch. His new book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, continues down this path, helping us with the ultimate big-picture issue: how do we know God?

Love Wins was a Sunday Times bestseller that created a media storm, launching Bell as a national religious voice who is reinvigorating what it means to be religious and a Christian today.

He is one of the most influential voices in the Christian world, and now his new book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, is poised to blow open the doors on how we understand God.

Bell believes we need to drop our primitive, tribal views of God and instead understand the God who wants us to become who we were designed to be, a God who created a universe of quarks and quantum string dynamics, but who also gives meaning to why new-born babies and stories of heroes and sacrifice inspire in us a deep reverence.

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 has fans and critics alike anxiously awaiting, and promises not to disappoint.

Book Description HarperOne. 1 Cloth(s), 2013. hard. Book Condition: New. Hailed by The New Yorker as "one of the most influential Christian leaders in the country," Rob Bell does for the concept of God what he did for the afterlife in the bestseller Love Wins, showing how our increasingly dysfunctional view of scripture—and our everyday lives—can be revitalized. Using wry anecdotes and wearing his erudition lightly, Bell ponders why the faithful and nonbelievers alike resist talking about God, and explains how we can reconnect with the God who is pulling us forward into a better future."With a smattering of pop culture references and bits of humor, Bell makes an argument that will appeal to believers looking for more rational conversations about God. Bell's fans will find much to ponder and enjoy."—Library Journal"Behind Bell's easy-to-read approach is a deeper sensibility, a heavier theological hand, than in any of Bell's previous works. This book will be a welcome breath of fresh air in a spiritual haze."—Publishers Weekly 226. Bookseller Inventory # 63518
