The popular pastor and New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God shows us how to pursue and realize our dreams, live in the moment, and joyfully do the things that make us come alive.

Each of us was created for something great—we just need to figure out what it is and find the courage to do it. Whether it’s writing the next great American novel, starting a business, or joining a band, Rob Bell wants to help us make those dreams become reality. Our path is ours and ours alone to pursue, he reminds us, and in doing so, we derive great joy because we are living our passions.

How to Be Here lays out concrete steps we can use to define and follow our dreams, interweaving engaging stories, lessons from biblical figures, insights gleaned from Rob’s personal experience, and practical advice. Rob gives you the support and insight you need to silence your critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender to the outcome.

Like Stephen Pressfield’s classic The War of Art, How to Be Here will inspire readers to seek the lives they were created to lead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love Rob Bell to pieces, but not his best work I'm a big fan of Rob Bell, but for some reason this book fell short for me. I definitely enjoy him more of a speaker and find myself having a lot more 'aha' moments when I listen to his podcasts then reading his books. This might be because the pages are so small and the font so book and the sentenced are extremely short and repetitive. His talks usually have a more stream of consciousness style that I've always enjoyed and wish could translate to his books. With that said, what How To Be Here discusses is entirely correct and true, but I didn't find that it talked about the necessary tools that could help me to utilize this advice into practice in my everyday life. But it's still good to read if you want something that is empowering, uplifting, and inspiring as long as you don't think too much into it.
