Sex. God. You know the two subjects are connected; you just don't have the words for how they are connected. And they cannot be separated. Where the one is, you will always find the other. When you actually live and feel and engage, you discover that the physical things around us are like windows into more. And when you talk about sexuality, you quickly end up in the spiritual - because "this" is always about "that". Something deeper. Something behind it all.
You can't talk about sexuality without talking about how we were made. About how we relate to each other. About how we were made to relate to each other. And that will inevitably lead you to who made us. At some point you have to talk about God. To make sense of the one, we have to explore the other. That is what this book is about.

I really enjoyed Love Wins and have watched and loved the Rob Bell's Nooma videos. So I was excited to hear something new by him. The concept behind the book was compelling and I really had high expectations. The book did make some interesting points about what intamacy with God should look like, but overall it felt disorganized and in the end it was hard to find a real take away message. The chapters on their own were okay, but they didn't tie into one another like I would have liked.
As always, the production and Rob Bell's narration were flawless. I did feel drawn in, but to what, I had no idea when it was over.
I enjoyed this book very much. Rob Bell is an excellent speaker, and his passion for teaching is quite obvious. My favorite part of his teaching is when he breaks down passages of Scripture into their Hebrew or Greek origins, and then explains the history behind them. I highly recommend this book.
When you think of the title Sex God; humility, quiet strength, gentle rebuke, and gracefilled LOVE probably do not come to mind. This book is and will be a guiding beacon of hope in a world consumed with a consumeristic style of serving oneself and getting what "I" want out of physical contact. Rob thank you for your insight and transparent revelations.
really really enjoyed the book. *hits repeat button* :D i would highly recommended this book. if anything, hear new ideas, sort through your own thoughts on some topics brought, and/or reaffirm some of the truth that God has shown you in life already.
I loved, loved this book. I am so glad it was a required read for my last Masters class. I learned so much and have experienced a transformation unspeakable in my life! The author read his book with heart and love to his audience. I wish he was the reader of all audible books! Thank you Rob Bell I'll tell everyone who will listen.
