Editorial Reviews

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)

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.
