Velvet Elvis
Repainting the Christian Faith
by Rob Bell | Genre: Christian Living
Release Date: July 2006
 

We know there's something more. We sense it, we feel it, and we want it. But how do we find it---a spirituality that stands up to the questions of an honest, searching mind?

"This book is for those who need a fresh take on Jesus and what it means for us to live the kind of life he teaches us to live," writes Rob Bell. "This pursuit of Jesus is leading us backward as much as forward ... I am learning that what seems brand new is often just the discovery of something that has been there all along---it just got lost somewhere and it needs to be picked up, dusted off, and reclaimed." Velvet Elvis offers original and refreshingly personal perspectives on what Christianity is really about.

Good Book | Posted September 03, 2009
I agree with the other reviewer about how Rob Bell writes in a very conversational style which helps the book flow. He does give us a very fresh and new look at our relationship with Jesus. He wants his reader to have a passionate relationship with Him and I believe that Rob does as well because it shows in his writing. This would be a good book for a youth group to read. They would enjoy his creativity.

Be very careful | Posted May 31, 2008
Rob bell has a very engaging writing style and at times says some good things. There is however some iffy theology in velvet elvis so don't go here looking for solid biblical teaching and if you do read it don't take on what you read without comparing it to the bible.

simply amazing | Posted April 07, 2008
Rob Bell is a hero of mine, having watched "Everything is Spiritual", his NOOMA videos, and reading this book. He puts a fresh spin on Jesus' and God's commandments for us, and how we can apply them. My favorite thing about this book is it is written like Bell talks. It is like he is conversing with you about the topic.

MUST READ
