Excerpt


Can pain give birth to bursts of creativity? Does suffering help us look outside the box? Driven by the belief that art and agony are linked, Bell explores our ability to experience significant insights not because situations went right but because everything fell apart. Discover how affliction can free you to see in new ways!

Excerpt


Materialism, consumerism, oppression, occupation---the bad news is that sometimes the church participates in the very things from which Christ came to set it free. Exposing the lies we often tell ourselves, Bell and Golden show what it means to be Christ's hands and feet in a world where it's easy to be blinded by today's warped values.

NOOMA, named after the Greek word for spirit, presents a fresh and innovative approach to communicate biblical truth. NOOMA, created by Rob Bell, is a series of short films on DVD between 10 and 14 minutes long about God and our lives and appropriate for personal and small group settings or congregational meetings. Like parables, they use the experiences of our lives to teach about the fullness of life through Jesus, tackling issues like forgiveness, discipleship, and unconditional love. The study materials accompanying each NOOMA encourage meaningful discussion with relevant questions and biblical references.

Excerpt


Where did early humans get the idea that a divine being existed and needed to be appeased? How did Jesus transform the notion of sacrifice? Weaving together anthropology, history, and theology, Rob Bell explores the evolution of religion, shedding fresh light on Jesus' death---and what it means for us in the postmodern era. English and Spanish subtitles. 90 minutes.

Excerpt


In Velvet Elvis, Rob Bell challenged us to explore the life and teaching of Jesus in order to form Christian lives abundant with generousity and compassion. Now, in his most recent book Sex God, Bell examines the Christian view of sexuality and how it is interconnected to our spirituality. Bell notes that our behavior here on earth is a reflection upon our understanding of God. If we hold to a broken practice of sexuality, then we will hold a broken view of God. Take a moment to read Rob's latest book and let him guide you toward a deeper spiritual understanding of the practice of your Christian faith!

Excerpt


Buried in the corner of his basement Rob Bell has a genuine Velvet Elvis. Although he loves this kitschy piece he realizes that it is not the pinnacle of contemporary art. In much the same way, Rob suggests, our approaches to Christian spirituality do not represent the pinnacle of the Christian life. In Velvet Elvis Bell challenges us to explore the dimensions and textures of our Savior so that we can create lives that are generous, compassionate, beautiful, intriguing and true. Seize this opportunity to re-create your spiritual life and recommit yourself to the way of Jesus.

Excerpt


Somewhere in the subterranean region of his basement Rob Bell has a genuine "Velvet Elvis" that he bought during his college days. While Rob treasures this campy piece of art, he would not consider it the finest portrait ever rendered in paint. In much the same way, although Rob deeply appreciates contemporary Christian spirituality, he does not think that our practices have exhausted our understanding or experience of God’s beauty, goodness and truth. For this reason, in Velvet Elvis Rob sets us free to explore the unsurpassable beauty of our Savior so that we can create communities that are generous, compassionate, intriguing and true. Take this opportunity to re-create your spiritual life and recommit yourself to the way of Jesus.

Excerpt


In the Hebrew Scriptures there is no word for the word "spiritual." And Jesus never used the phrase "spiritual life." Why? Because for Jesus and his tradition, all of life is spiritual and all actions engaged upon are spiritual actions. Everything is Spiritual.
