Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections Between Sexuality and Spirituality

by Rob Bell
I like Rob Bell's Nooma material and was impressed when I visited his Mars Hill Church in Grand Rapids, but there was a big part of me that wanted to hate this book from before I opened the first page. Why? Because so much time and effort has gone into the graphic design of the book that I feared it may be all style and no substance. And to a certain extent that is true. It is less substantial than it might be. For a starter, if it had been printed as a normal book, it would have been half the length of its already slight 175 pages. Also it reads like a series of Nooma talks broadly grouped around the subject of sex, sexuality, relationships and marriage, which is no bad thing, except that it never gets very deep below the surface, and doesn't really, as the subtitle would suggest it does, explore the profundity of the "endless connections between sexuality and spirituality." In its favour, however, is Rob Bell's peerless ability to delve behind scripture to the original Hebrew context, and consequently relate Biblical passages and liturgical practice to everyday life and relationships.
