Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I've written this book because there's a growing sense that when it comes to God, we're at the end of one era and the start of another, an entire mode of understanding and talking about God is dying as something new is being birthed."—from What We Talk About When We Talk About God

How God is described today strikes many as mean, primitive, backwards, illogical, tribal, and at odds with the frontiers of science. At the same time, many intuitively feel a sense of reverence and awe in the world. Can we find a new way to talk about God? Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell shows how traditional ideas have grown stale and dysfunctional and reveals a new path for how to return vitality and vibrancy to how we understand God. Bell reveals how we got stuck, why culture resists certain ways of talking about God, and how we can reconnect with the God who is with us, for us, and ahead of us, pulling us forward into a better future—and ready to help us live life to the fullest.

Review:

"The true nature of God is dissected, placed under the microscope, and thoroughly analyzed in this fascinating look at the current state of Christianity and its role in society. Rob Bell narrates his own book — in a performance that makes use of oratory skills gained from his work as a pastor. Bell's tone is simple, calm, and thoughtful. His approach is straightforward yet personable, and he doesn't sound as if he's preaching here; nor is he judgmental. Bell's reading captures the spirit of his prose, which emphasizes that God is with us, for us, and ahead of us. Those critical of religion will find little to change their minds here, but the audiobook will provide a valuable listening experience for those struggling with their beliefs or searching for answers.
