I've listened to the audio version of this book multiple times. I keep trying to find the ways it may lead people astray or is heretical as many christians imply.
The more I listen to it, as I also journey with God to discover the larger more beautiful story he's creating and inviting us into... the more I resonate with this telling of the overall draw, pull, invitation to everyone. This is not a book of theology, doctrine, or dogma. It is a large scope, expansive introduction to holistic faith and living. Understanding God as a good and three unique persons who we can join in discovering ALL God wants for us. Why would anyone not desire this God... this kind of relationship that completes our humanity by watching Jesus is his incarnate revelation? Sin?? It's not being receptive to how this beautiful message will change us, and the life of eternity we can start now, not when we die. Rob does not shy away from stating the truth that we're all broken and that's a central reason we do need God. But it's a compelling invitation, not fear that gets that message through. This book makes me desire God more than almost any other I've ever read.

What made the experience of listening to What We Talk About When We Talk About God the most enjoyable?
Rob's style is very conversational. I feel he is sitting right there next to me explaining all this to me, personally. He doesn't speak down to me, but he does talk about some very complex things in a way that I get it.
What did you like best about this story?
I love how filled with hope his message is. How he explains that God is bigger than anything we imagined. He focuses on what is essential, but doesn't shy away from the things that have been obstacles. Rob talks from his heart, but it is filled with knowledge and reason, too. What he says really makes sense. I get it. I understand it.
What about Rob Bell’s performance did you like?
His conversational style. Understandable.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, and I almost made it.
Any additional comments?
This is a book for everyone that is willing to be open to the possibility that God really is bigger, more loving, more forgiving than any of us every imagined.

Would you consider the audio edition of What We Talk About When We Talk About God to be better than the print version?
We'll done Mr Bell. Back to your thought provoking best. I must admit I think quite a few folks will lose themselves in the first hour or two, but it really appealed to my science background.
