"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 bestselling 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Book but misses the mark This book was decent. It's written in a style as though author Rob Bell is speaking to you at a convention. It's a quick read although the middle drags a little. I found the beginning and endings to the book to be most interesting. The early discussion on the current science was very interesting although maybe less from a religious standpoint. The end of the book where it talks about the evolution of the laws within the Bible makes excellent points. But the middle portion and heart of the book's attempt to use buzzwords like "SO" and "FOR" to explain his and/or our relationship to God falls flat imo. The arguments were not overly compelling and I didn't get a lot out of some of the things he was talking about. It's just extremely hard to relate your experience with God to others. It does not have much in the way of biblical scholarship (it does have some good things) so the average reader can enjoy it but the more advanced person may get less out of it. This was a decent read. I think a score of 3.5/5 would be best but I can't give it a 4.

Editorial Reviews

“Rob Bell narrates his own book-in a performance that makes use of oratory skills gained from his work as a pastor. Bell’s tone is simple, calm, and thoughtful. His approach is straightforward yet personable, and he doesn’t sound as if he’s preaching here; nor is he judgmental.”
