The words and stories of the Bible have endured for centuries. People have turned to its pages time and again to find answers to their most pressing problems. But according to bestselling author Rob Bell, they may only be scratching the surface of its great depths. And much as he did in his pioneering book Love Wins—asking all the questions that everybody had but nobody would talk about—Bell now poses a series of probing and powerful questions to one of the world’s most enduring sacred texts, helping readers see how it is much more revelatory, revolutionary, and relevant than we ever imagined.
The Bible isn’t, as some might assume, a singular text stemming from one point of view. Instead, it is a library—a complex and multifaceted collection of poems, letters, and stories compiled over 1,500 years by over 40 contributors. A compilation written, assembled, and edited by people living in different times, functioning under different circumstances, and possessing differing opinions and agendas. And this—the Bible’s human element, its very humanity—is not just its most remarkable characteristic, it’s how it must be read and understood for its words to continue to inspire, impact, and console modern-day readers.
