Publisher's Summary

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 love Rob's perspective

What did you love best about Sex God?

Rob gives such a unique perspective on the subject of Faith and life issues. With a very non-judgmental delivery, he encourages us to consider our choices.

What other book might you compare Sex God to and why?

Love Wins and the Velvet Elvis

The way you treat Creation reflects the way you feel about the Creator.

High production quality, questionable content

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 truly loved this book and can’t recommend Robs other books enough! Thank you to Rob for putting himself out there and challenging and reframing the indoctrinated beliefs of the religious institutions we know.
Thank you so much for supporting me on my journey, Rob. Love you!

A new perspective.

This very well written and read audio book helped me gain a nail, positive perspective about sexuality and it's significance in the biblical and modern relationship.
It also includes insights into relationships in general which very helpful and inspiring.
Bell introduces and supports the concept that a mutually empowering, sexually fulfilling relationship is "heaven on earth". This beautiful idea is exactly what I needed to hear at this point in my life.
The book is very female friendly and dispels many of the oppressive myths used as tools by Christian males. This book could easily be called "Sex Goddess!"

Really interesting!

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.

Rob Bell speaks of higher truths and casual depths

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.
