9780062378279: What We Talk About When We Talk About God: A Special Edition

The smash bestseller with a new preface by the author in a special tie-in edition to Rob Bell’s talk during Oprah's “The Life You Want” Fall 2014 arena tour.

What We Talk About When We Talk About God: A Special Edition includes a new preface in which Rob talks about the book, how it has touched so many lives—opening minds and dialogues—and transformed his own.

In this instant classic, Rob offered us a new way to talk about God. He 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 usfor us, and ahead of us, pulling us forward into a better future—and ready to help us live life to the fullest.

From the Back Cover:

The truth is, we have a problem with God.

It's not just a problem of definition—what is it we're talking about when we talk about God?—and it's not just the increasing likelihood that two people discussing God are in fact talking about two extraordinarily different realities while using the exact same word.

This problem with God goes much, much deeper.

I've written this book about that word, then, because there's a growing sense among a growing number of people 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

New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell 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 while pointing the way for how we can return vitality and vibrancy to our lives of faith today.
