Details: Product Description I’ve had a sense since I was youngthat there’s more going on here, thatthe world is not a cold, dead place,that it’s alive in some compelling andmysterious way.This book is about that sense. I’ve triedto listen to it, and follow it, and trust it.It’s been devastating at times, intoxicatingat others, heartbreaking and maddeningand euphoric――how do you make senseof this experience we’re having here onthis ball of rock hurtling through spaceat 67,000 miles an hour?There are big questions: Everythingis made of particles and atoms, and theuniverse has been expanding for thirteenbillion years?And then there are those other questions, about the people and places andevents that have shaped us.HOWEVER MASSIVE ANDCOSMIC IT ALL IS, IT’S ALSOREALLY, REALLY PERSONAL.AND SPIRITUAL.THAT’S THE WORD FOR IT.That’s the sense I’ve been followingfor a while now――this awareness thatthere’s something bigger happening inthe depth and complexity and struggleof life, something that connects us all,reminding us that it all matters and it’sall headed somewhere.Part memoir, part confession, partextended riff on the endlessly evolvingnature of reality, Everything Is Spiritualis an invitation to see what you’ve beena part of this whole time. Review "In Everything Is Spiritual, Rob Bell updates Teilhard de Chardin’s Catholic mysticism, makes sexier Werner Heisenberg’s quantum physics, and baptizes Jewish Kabbalah in an exciting vision of the future of human evolution. Bell challenges the notion that science and belief are at war with his sublime fusion of Christian faith and modern evolutionary science. Bell’s book is the perfect antidote to the plague of an evangelical worldview that is captive to imperial dreams and a literalism that kills the spirit of Christianity. Everything Is Spiritual is a bracing and stirring manifesto for a fresh contemporary vision of an ancient faith." -- MICHAEL ERIC DYSON, New York Times bestselling author of TEARS WE CANNOT STOP“Nobody else can take ancient teachings and modern science, and blend them together into wisdom that makes sense to me, and heals me. Rob’s unorthodox and bold thinking stirs my intellect, comforts my heart, and makes me believe that ― within all the frightening chaos of the unknowable universe ― I still have a sacred place. His work is a sacred gift to a troubled world.” -- ELIZABETH GILBERT, New York Times bestselling author of BIG MAGIC and CITY OF GIRLS “Bell is at the forefront of a rethinking of Christianity in America.” -- TIME MAGAZINE“Former evangelical Christian pastor Bell (Love Wins) persuasively preaches a gospel of embracing one’s story in this enjoyable mix of memoir and sermon. … Bell’s vigorous, quirky outing will appeal to progressive Christians.” ―Publishers Weekly“Bell looks at the world, at the universe, with both childlike wonder and insatiable curiosity. A lovely, poetic meditation on what brings us together." ―Booklist About the Author ROB BELL is a New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and spiritual teacher.
