Book Title Author Rating Survey
Velvet Elvis Rob Bell noscript=true}} If traditional American Christianity frustrates you, or leaves you cold, then this is a book for you. It is always more of a story than a lecture, and a story about God that draws you in.
Adventures in Missing the Point Tony Campolo and Rob Bell noscript=true}} A collection of writings from these two authors that take on some of the toughest subjects in popular Christianity right now. One author will write their side of the issue and at the end of the essay the other will comment on the topic giving their feedback, counter point and anything they believe the other should have put in. Unfortunately, neither of these two tell their full opinions on any of the subjects and therefore it acts as more of an introduction to the issues as opposed to a full scale debate.
Soul Talk: the Language God Longs for us to Speak Larry Crab noscript=true}} This book is about being aware that the first thing for all of us is to know God, even more than being fixed by God. It is shows describes how to draw conversation toward knowing God. It's one of those books that can be read more than once to let it all soak in. It has made me more aware of God's presence while in conversation with others and his desire for us to know him more
