Item description for Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith by Rob Bell...

In order to find an authentic understanding of the Christian faith, Bell frees readers to consider God beyond the picture someone else painted.

Publishers Description
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?'

Reviews - What do customers think about Velvet Elvis?

Velvet what?  Mar 23, 2007
The title grabbed me--as in "whaaaat?"-but the content of Rob Bell's call to "repaint the Christian faith", is what wouldn't let go. As I spend quite a bit of time in my car, I purchased the unabridged audio CDs and was as glued to the speakers as someone negotiating traffic can be. Though I do question some of Rob's conclusions and assertions, overall, I feel he deepened my longing to know my creator and savior better.
One of the BEST books I have ever read!  Mar 23, 2007
Rob Bell teaches you things about Jesus in this book that would never occur to you. You will read it and say, wow, now that makes sense. Maybe they are obvious things that you just never thought of but Rob Bell reveals them to you in such a way that you will never forget them. I highly recommend this book as well as his second book- "Sex God". These books will change your life.
Rob Bells Velvet Elvis  Mar 9, 2007
Finaly a man who gets to the heart of the matter in ways that finaly make sense. Its ok to ask the hard questions and shake the foundations of your beleif system. Mr. Bell reveals the roots of many of our beliefs in ways that make the light go on and has you saying 'Wow, I never knew that before.'
A fresh new perspective that does help you stretch and repaint your faith in wonderful ways.
Refreshing  Mar 8, 2007
Rob Bell shows us why religion isn't the answer, Jesus Christ is. His zeal comes thru the pages, but so does his profound thinking. A great read.
LOVE THIS BOOK  Mar 8, 2007
Deeply thought provoking. New insights into who Jesus is and why relationship with Him should radically change the way I view my life and those around me.
