Publisher's Summary

The popular pastor and New York Times best-selling author of Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God shows us how to pursue and realize our dreams, live in the moment, and joyfully do the things that make us come alive.
Each of us was created for something great - we just need to figure out what it is and find the courage to do it. Whether it's writing the next great American novel, starting a business, or joining a band, Rob Bell wants to help us make those dreams become reality. Our path is ours and ours alone to pursue, he reminds us, and in doing so we derive great joy because we are living our passions.
How to Be Here lays out concrete steps we can use to define and follow our dreams, interweaving engaging stories, lessons from biblical figures, insights gleaned from Rob's personal experience, and practical advice. Rob gives you the support and insight you need to silence your critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender to the outcome.
Like Stephen Pressfield's classic The War of Art, How to Be Here will inspire listeners to seek the lives they were created to lead.

Can't Wait to Go Through This Again! Love it!

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Be Here to be better than the print version?

How to Be Here: A Guide to Creating a Life Worth Living - by Rob Bell.
This book is incredible! I finished it in 2 days which has to be a record for me. I even rewound it to re-listen to some pieces because it was so good. I will definitely be going through this one again. It's all things I love: Christ, contemplative, creativity, mindfulness, and living the best life you can. LOVE! Rob is also super fun to listen to. Animated and good spirited.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything. "find your one" all you need to know is where you start from. Making a life worth living. "Stop thinking about shit that ain't happening". Everything!

What does Rob Bell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His laughs! And his fun inflections when he starts each section. His candor in how he delivers the meaningful, the fun, the interesting, the stories.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Find your one. What's your one? We all start from one. We cannot do anything about step 15, 16 or 17 until we first do one. Focus on that.

Any additional comments?

Love it!

Good book but not a stand alone.

This book feels more like it was written for Rob Bell fans. It doesn't mean it's not a good book, but it feels like it rides on the reputation of his previous work. It is an inspiring work but needed to be fleshed out a bit more.
