New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell, whom the The New Yorker describes as "one of the most influential Christian leaders in the county," 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.
How God is described today strikes many as mean, primitive, backward, 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? Bell reveals how we got stuck, why culture resists certain ways of talking about God, and how we can reconnect with the God.
"Time and again, Bell challenges the reader to be open to surprise, mystery and all of the unanswerables contained within the 'wide stream' called Christianity." --Christian Century
