-With a smattering of pop culture references and bits of humor, Bell makes an argument that will appeal to believers looking for more rational conversations about God. . . . Bell's fans will find much to ponder and enjoy.---Library Journal

The true nature of God is dissected, placed under the microscope, and thoroughly analyzed in this fascinating look at the current state of Christianity and its role in society. Rob Bell narrates his own book-in a performance that makes use of oratory skills gained from his work as a pastor. Bell's tone is simple, calm, and thoughtful. His approach is straightforward yet personable, and he doesn't sound as if he's preaching here; nor is he judgmental. Bell's reading captures the spirit of his prose, which emphasizes that God is with us, for us, and ahead of us. Those critical of religion will find little to change their minds here, but the audiobook will provide a valuable listening experience for those struggling with their beliefs or searching for answers.

Conversations about God have devolved into meanness, ignorant scripture-citing, and useless either/or statements, claims Bell, a popular Christian pastor and author. In order to reassert the presence of a benevolent God, Bell turns to contemporary understandings of science, ethics, and sociology, using them to identify how God factors into modern life. With a smattering of pop culture references and bits of humor, Bell makes an argument that will appeal to believers looking for more rational conversations about God. The author reads, and while the first chapter starts at a fast clip, Bell soon settles into a good pace. VERDICT Bell's fans, as well as those of Tim Keller and other modern Christian thinkers, will find much to ponder and enjoy in this title.-Amy -Koester, St. Charles City-Cty. Lib.
