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.  Download and start listening now!

    " This is my favorite Rob bell book. As a single male in my twenty's this book was a bit of a breath of re-leaf. I to might not have been able to connect fully with every story or every chapter but it shone a lot of insight on questions and struggles i have had will have and am having. the book takes the endless connection between our sexuality and spirituality from a Christan perspective. Its a nice fun yet heavy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Childree | 2/11/2014

    " Bell manages to present the cultural context of creation, relationships, marriage, and yes, sex. Knowing the cultural meanings to Israelites for various statements oft repeated statements, and seemingly vague references, really helped me further understand God's ideas on relationship. Read it with The Shack by William P. Young to broaden your view of what it means to be in relationship with God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/7/2014

    " Questions many common beliefs about sexuality and I think it is a definite must read for Christians. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 2/5/2014

    " I figured this book would be steamy. Sex is in the title. It was kind of dry. Yes, it talked about sex, but not a lot. It was OK, but not what I expected. Sex is cool (I'm married). Let's get it on! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julianne | 1/19/2014

    " Two observations: 1) despite all its genuine insights, this book doesn't really ever talk about gay people, which seems weird for a book titled Sex God and 2) it's important to read the endnotes! (I just waited until the end and read them all at once. That may not work for everyone.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 1/19/2014

    " Very interesting parallels drawn here. My favorite illustration is about how we can replace the work we do with our hands that is not life-giving with work that is life giving and how we are changed in the process! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher | 1/14/2014

    " One of the best books I've ever read on relationships and spirituality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 1/13/2014

    " A very nicely done piece on Christianity and sexuality. This is a topic that more Christian leaders need to read and think through to teach to their friends and circles of influence. Ignoring the fact that we are sexual beings does not help anyone... Rob does a great job of thinking holistically. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyn | 1/13/2014

    " I kept starting this book over before I finished...not because I didn't understand it or couldn't remember things. No, it was because I practically wanted to memorize it. I kept reading sentences that I wanted to share, not necessarily with the whole world, but with particular individuals. Rob Bell writes in this A.D.D.-style that I like, too. It's like having a rapid-fire conversation with a really smart person. His insights amaze me. Even if you're not a church-goer, I think it will speak to you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 1/3/2014

    " This was my favorite of Rob Bell's books. I especially love the concept of "living in the tension"...it seems the best way to live is always the most difficult in terms of our relationships. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ebeth | 11/17/2013

    " Liked it, but it reads like a conversation more than a book. Bell insists that our sexuality and our spirituality are intricately connnected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin O'Riordan | 10/17/2013

    " I love this book. It's deeply thoughtful, and even though it's aimed at a Christian reading audience, I think all of us who write and think about sex and its meaning in society can benefit from it. It's also lovely to read, not all preachy and negative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 6/16/2013

    " I have never had more people just happen to ask me what I was reading when I was reading this book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Malachi Elguera | 3/29/2013

    " I loved how Rob explains Jewish traditions in their relation to stories in the Bible. These parallels helped me to understand how God sees His relationship with us as a marriage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 10/20/2012

    " This book was wonderful in a completely different way than what I expected. Didn't really do anything different for me in the way of relationships, but gave me a greater appreciation for our intimacy with Christ.THAT part was amazing to me. That and the Chuppah! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tylor Lovins | 9/19/2012

    " Great book! I though Rob Bell did a great job with what the title said the book was going to do: exploring sexuality with spirituality in a nice and appliable way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristine | 8/11/2012

    " What a title! But Rob Bell is engaging and conversational as he delves into our creation as sexual beings and how everything in our lives has to do with that. Awesome read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 3/8/2011

    " Extremely interesting book. Though provoking to say the least. Loved the connections Bell makes between sexuality and spirituality while tying in our culture. A very relevan book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 1/15/2011

    " This is a fairly classic collection of thoughts by Rob Bell. Several out of the box ideas, but not as thought provoking as Jesus Wants To Save Christians. Still a must read for this that are encouraged by his teachings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 1/13/2011

    " Don't let the title scare you. This is an excellent, excellent book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 12/17/2010

    " I figured this book would be steamy. Sex is in the title. It was kind of dry. Yes, it talked about sex, but not a lot. It was OK, but not what I expected. Sex is cool (I'm married). Let's get it on! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mish | 11/13/2010

    " Bell brings Christian theology into the 21st century with this very candid and interesting insight into the interdependent relationship between God spirituality and sexuality. I highly recommend this book. "
