9780062049667: What We Talk About When We Talk About God

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.

From the Back Cover:

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?

Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell does here for God what he did for heaven and hell in Love Wins: he 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.

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
