Description

"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 best-selling 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.

Love this book!

I've listened to the audio version of this book multiple times. I keep trying to find the ways it may lead people astray or is heretical as many christians imply.
The more I listen to it, as I also journey with God to discover the larger more beautiful story he's creating and inviting us into... the more I resonate with this telling of the overall draw, pull, invitation to everyone. This is not a book of theology, doctrine, or dogma. It is a large scope, expansive introduction to holistic faith and living. Understanding God as a good and three unique persons who we can join in discovering ALL God wants for us. Why would anyone not desire this God... this kind of relationship that completes our humanity by watching Jesus is his incarnate revelation? Sin?? It's not being receptive to how this beautiful message will change us, and the life of eternity we can start now, not when we die. Rob does not shy away from stating the truth that we're all broken and that's a central reason we do need God. But it's a compelling invitation, not fear that gets that message through. This book makes me desire God more than almost any other I've ever read.

God is leading us ahead

What made the experience of listening to What We Talk About When We Talk About God the most enjoyable?

Rob's style is very conversational. I feel he is sitting right there next to me explaining all this to me, personally. He doesn't speak down to me, but he does talk about some very complex things in a way that I get it.

What did you like best about this story?

I love how filled with hope his message is. How he explains that God is bigger than anything we imagined. He focuses on what is essential, but doesn't shy away from the things that have been obstacles. Rob talks from his heart, but it is filled with knowledge and reason, too. What he says really makes sense. I get it. I understand it.

What about Rob Bell’s performance did you like?

His conversational style. Understandable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I almost made it.

Any additional comments?

This is a book for everyone that is willing to be open to the possibility that God really is bigger, more loving, more forgiving than any of us every imagined.

Clear and concise explanation and explanation

Dynamic, slowly building from premise to premise; in the melodious writing that I know Rob Bell for.

You won’t be disappointed.

Another Hit

I love Rob Bell’s books, and this one delivers as expected. His concept of God as expansive and loving speaks to me in a way few can. I very highly recommend this book.

It didn’t answer any of my questions

Just a pastor talking vaguely about religion making vailed, age-old arguments for God you’ve heard before

Gave him a chance because peter Rollins spoke so highly of him.

An elaborate and well thought description of many things that are tough to describe

I recommend this book for the searchers out there, the ones who sincerely want to grasp at the many things we want to tag words to but don't know how - Rob does.

The fact that he narrates all of his audiobooks should hint at how much everyone who reads his books matters, and how much thought and care he puts into each one - this one is no different.

In "What We Talk About When We Talk About God," Rob carefully and thoroughly approaches the glue of the universe and how science and God not only are not diametrically opposed, but form a beautiful cohesive and inspiring relationship, a merger between curiosity, the infinite, and the challenging.

Rob's book will leave you thinking about things more; and hopefully having a little bit more understanding about the fabric that makes up the universe and why it matters in the first place. Thanks Rob, surf on.

Awesome

I've read most of Rob Bell's books. He puts words to my thoughts and beliefs. He allowed me to see that I am not in contradiction or opposition with the religion of my experience. This is allowing me to experience God and have a relationship with God without guilt, shame, or resentment.
Thanks

Refreshingly Simplistic Theology

It wasn't convoluted. it wasn't too wordy. At no point was I be preached to about the importance of God's love. Rather I was being informed of how simple it really is to accept God's love. It's as simple as existing. Listen to the book. You'll see what I mean.
