‘New York Times’ bestselling author Rob Bell shows us how to discover the greatness we were born for, successfully pursue our dreams, find our path, and live confident, fulfilled lives.Rob Bell believes that each of us has a path, a calling—whether it’s writing a novel, starting a business, joining a band, or simply becoming a volunteer. But many people are afraid to start on that path. Who are we to do that? Bell counters, Why not you? We need to learn to turn off the internal and external critics and leap. The universe is alive to help us. And we can only discover passion and joy after we take off.Interweaving engaging stories; lessons from Biblical figures; science, art, and business; honest personal experience; and practical advice, he offers invaluable insight on how to silence our critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender the outcome. Combining the practical inspiration of Stephen Pressfield’s ‘The War of Art’ and the warm instructional insight of Annie Lamott’s ‘Bird By Bird’, ‘Yes, You’ encourages us to leave boring behind and embrace the fulfilling lives we are meant to have.
Perhaps more relevant than ever before, Rob Bell’s Velvet Elvis is his original and bestselling classic. In Velvet Elvis, Bell invites readers to wrestle with their faith, and offers a radical new perspective on Jesus, the church, and Christianity today.We know there's something more. We sense it, we feel it, and we want it. But how do we find it – a spirituality that stands up to the questions of an honest, searching mind? 'This book is for those who need a fresh take on Jesus and what it means for us to live the kind of life he teaches us to live,' writes Rob Bell.This new edition of Velvet Elvis, along with the relaunch of Rob Bell’s three other classic works, offers what Rob does best: original and refreshingly personal perspectives on what Christianity is really about. 'We have to test everything,' writes Bell. 'Do that to this book. Don't swallow it uncritically. Think about it. Wrestle with it. Just because I'm a Christian and I'm trying to articulate a Christian worldview doesn't mean I've got it nailed. I'm contributing to the discussion. God has spoken, and the rest is commentary, right?'
Bestselling author Rob Bell offers a provocative book which gets to the heart of questions about life and death. His perspective, encapsulated by his famous slogan ‘love wins’, will surprise and challenge both Christians and atheists, and will inspire people of all faiths and none.A recent Gallup survey showed that over half of British people believe in heaven. But what is it? Who is it for? Why does it matter? And how do we know if we’re going there?Rob Bell believes that even the most fervent Christians and the most committed atheists, are still not satisfied with their traditional answers to these questions. Out of respect for their traditions they keep quiet, confiding to a few close, safe friends their doubts and questions about why they are here and where they are going.For many years, on sermons and DVDs and on bumper stickers and t-shirts, bestselling Chrisian author Rob Bell has been saying that ‘Love Wins’. But ‘Love Wins’ is much more than a pithy slogan.‘Love Wins’ is a philosophy drawn out from deep within religious tradition and writings. It provides answers to the deepest and most difficult questions about life and faith, and about heaven and hell. And it is a call to arms for all of us to live a more meaningful life.
Sex God, Rob Bell’s follow-up to the bestselling Velvet Elvis, tackles the controversial relationship between sexuality and spirituality. Published as part of the Rob Bell Classic relaunch, Sex God explores the links between love, sex, and God.‘God and sex go together. You can’t separate the two’, says Rob Bell, because this physical world is intimately linked to deeper spiritual realities. And so, in order to make sense of sexuality, at some point you have to talk about God. With beauty and unusual insight, Sex God explores this connection.
