Everyone will benefit from this book! yes. even the Christians...
It's a piece of CLARITY and literary enlightenment for this generation!
i luv his humor and flow...he brings deep issues to the surface and challenges us to go into the deep end with him...
nothing in this book is "new" (like all things under the sun)...hermeneutics for the simple minded...he reads the bible like an artist, a critic, a historian, a scientist, and with a generous heart.
5Star for his vivid narration....easy to listen to...
just download it...
(luv u, Rob. so thankful that OurFather, put me in the same timeline of history as u)
Despite Rob Bell’s apparent disdain for the comma, I absolutely loved this book. I learned so much; deeply insightful observations about scripture context and meaning. I highly recommend to anyone even slightly intrigued by the Bible. It helps to be familiar with the books of the bible but you can definitely still enjoy this book without any knowledge of them. Can’t wait to read my next Rob Bell book! His podcast is great, too.
First off, I am a Rob Bell fan. He has a gift of making difficult concepts more easily accessible and this down to earth explanation of what the Bible is, is clear and very helpful. Whatever you may or may not believe about God, the Bible is first and foremost a human resource compiled by human beings, and within its pages you see an unfolding of the story of humanity's attempt to understand itself and its relationship to the world and to God.
I have always read the bible one dimensionally and it has left me with many more questions than answers but I’ve never found an engaging enough way to get answers other than loads of theological research by academic writers. (Which I have never pursued with any real vigour). This book is packed with insight and truths that are constantly blowing my my mind! I wish he would go from the start of the bible and work through every single line. I’d read that forever!
It’s a well written book in the sense that it’s easy to read and the language was well written. However, the book can not be great given a close look on its logic and reasoning, if there is any. Read lots of books yet always be alert and check what’s written by men with what’s revealed by God.
