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.

Rob Bell is the bestselling author of Love Wins, Velvet Elvis, Sex God, Jesus Wants to Save Christians, Drops Like Stars, and What We Talk About When We Talk About God. An international teacher and speaker, he was profiled in The New Yorker and TIME magazine, which named him one of 2011’s hundred most influential people.Review:
“Bell is at the forefront of a rethinking of Christianity in America.” (TIME)
“[Bell is] one of the most influential Christian leaders in the country.” (The New Yorker)
“One of the country’s most influential... pastors.” (New York Times)
“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)
“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)
“Twenty years from now, we may look back from a radically new evangelicalism and see Rob Bell at the center of the shift. . . . Bell has never been afraid to push the envelope on what we know or think we know about God.” (Relevant Magazine)
“What We Talk About When We Talk About God challenges conventional notions of God as an otherworldly divine being set apart from humanity, opposed to science and insistent on a conservative interpretation of the Bible. Instead, Bell argues that God is more clearly perceived during moments like, well, surfing.” (Orange County Register)
“Rob Bell’s new book is good news for people who want nothing to do with religion. However, it may be even better news for those of us who are deeply committed to the faith but see that religion is way off track.” (Mennonite World Review)
“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)
