Product description

Synopsis

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 pursuit of Jesus is leading us backward as much as forward...I am learning that what seems brand new is often just the discovery of something that has been there all along - it just got lost somewhere and it needs to be picked up, dusted off, and reclaimed." "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 world view doesn't mean I've got it nailed. I'm contributing to the discussion. God has spoken, and the rest is commentary, right?" Velvet Elvis offers original and refreshingly personal perspectives on what Christianity is really about.

From the Back Cover

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 pursuit of Jesus is leading us backward as much as forward … I am learning that what seems brand new is often just the discovery of something that has been there all along-- it just got lost somewhere and it needs to be picked up, dusted off, and reclaimed.” Now in softcover, Velvet Elvis offers 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?”
