Tomorrow, March 12, the latest book by Rob Bell (author of the controversial Love Wins) will go on sale. It’s called What We Talk About When We Talk About God. This 3-minute video, produced by HarperOne, summarizes the main point of the book and why Bell compares many common concepts of God to an Oldsmobile. According to his website, the book “shows how traditional ideas have grown stale and dysfunctional and how to return vitality and vibrancy to lives of faith today.”
