Description

"We have to test everything. I thank God for anybody anywhere who is pointing people to the mysteries of God. But those people would all tell you to think long and hard about what they are saying and doing and creating. Test it. Probe it. Do that to this book. Don't swallow it uncritically. Think about it. Wrestle with it.

"Just because I'm a Christian and I'm trying to articulate a Christian worldview, doesn't mean I've got it nailed. I'm contributing to the discussion. God has spoken, and the rest is commentary, right?"
—Rob Bell

Rock solid without the cheese ; )

I have always loved Rob Bell. I was lucky to live in Michigan in the heyday of Mars Hill and hear him speak there once back in 1999. I hate that he has become largely misunderstood and misquoted over the years. This book, like all of his teachings, somehow reveal and create a picture of Jesus that deep down you already know exists, but few are as bold or able to make so real. Rob has done for Christianity what Tiger Woods has done for golf: brought it to a whole new level. I think a lot of modern church planters are afraid to admit the impact he has had on the progressive Evangical movement. Reading this makes me actually want to be a Christian again! If you can get past some of the microphone hissing here and there, the insights will forever haunt your understandings of scripture.

Best book for life

This book radically changed my life and continues to challenge everything I grew up with. this book gave me spring theology and the reason why Jesus is good for me today. I decided to start living to love other people because of this book. I gives me wings. Rob, thank you for sharing your heart and passion. I am a better man
because of you.

Rob Rocks It

I read this book 8-10 years ago and probably loved it more this time on audio. Rob's cadence of ideas and insights on a version of a Liberating-Fun-Loving-Downcast-Friend to Degenerates Jesus....is my kind of Jesus.

Refreshing

Powerful thoughts to ponder. Most know that the Christian church in America has been missing the point for a while now. This book helps to put your finger on it. Very challenging, liberating & refreshing.

Refreshing, life-changing, and powerful!

Where does Velvet Elvis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of my favorite books. I love Rob Bell's refreshing take on things as old as time.

What other book might you compare Velvet Elvis to and why?

If you like any one of Rob Bell's books, you'll enjoy Velvet Elvis.

What does Rob Bell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love that Rob Bell narrates his own audio books. He is such a gifted communicator!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The idea that we need to continue to paint the picture of the Gospel because it is Alive.... That really struck me.

Any additional comments?

Thank you, Rob Bell, for sharing the Jesus of Hope, Life, and Comfort!

Confirmation

Thank you for this Amazing piece of literature. A message we all need to hear. It’s just good to know there are other that ‘get it’. Thank you for using your gift to spread the ‘right/correct’ message. It so often gets twisted and manipulated....Refreshing!!

A Must Read - Even if Your Pastor says Don't

The Idea that the Gospel is good news to believers and non-believers alike is a radical and power concept that we need to embrace.

Rob is a master communicator so the delivery is easy to listen to.

Great reflection on what it means to follow Christ

I loved that the author read this book instead of a voice actor. It adds authenticity because the author knows what words to emphasize and is more interested in transmitting the message than about sounding nice.

I also loved that he said that Christianity isn't about labeling yourself as such. It's about helping. It's about taking care of others. It's about making my home and my city a heaven on Earth instead of a hell on Earth.

It's hard to help others. Especially if we feel like they don't deserve it for one reason or another. But we didn't deserve Jesus' help on Calvary. He gave it to us anyway.
