Two new ambiguous God books for Rob Bell

English: Rob Bell at the 2011 Time 100 gala.

Gird your loins. Coming in March, Rob Bell will once again be the topic of much discussion as he unleashes two new books about God on Christendom: Love Wins: For Teens (a follow-up to his highly-controversial and universalist book, Love Wins),and What We Talk About When We Talk About God are both coming out March 12.

Here is the trailer in Love Wins: For Teens, in which he talks about how Jesus explained God in terms of a party, and why that is such an important lesson to learn: “If God threw a party, would everyone be invited? Would you?”

Amazon already has this one listed as the No. 2 bestseller for the Spirituality category as people are flocking to these ear-tickling messages.

In What We Talk About, the “behind the scenes” trailer about why Bell wrote this book is even more confusing. He says, “the book is essentially, God is not behind us dragging us backwards into some primitive, regressive state. God has always been ahead of us pulling us forward into greater and greater peace, integration, wholeness and love.”

One Response to Two new ambiguous God books for Rob Bell

  1. Mr Davis says:

    Everytime I hear of a new book coming out I shudder.

    Ecclesiastes 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

    When will we just learn to Fear God and keep His commandments? But we fall into this error looking to men for knowledge. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:6-7
