Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections Between Sexuality and Spirituality

Rob Bell, Author Zondervan Publishing Company $19.99 (201p) ISBN 978-0-310-26346-3
Bell raises the bar with this evocative follow-up to last year's bestsellerVelvet Elvis. ""Is sex a picture of heaven?"" he wonders. It's all about God and sex and heaven, he says: ""...they're connected. And they can't be separated. Where the one is you will always find the other."" Bell's book isn't a sex manual, an exploration of the differences between men and women or a marriage how-to, though all of that is here. Instead, it's the story of God becoming human, of humans mirroring God and love made manifest in the chaos of our humanity.Sex God is about relationships revealed in a way that elevates the human condition and offers hope to those whose relationships are wounded. In Bell's spare, somewhat oblique style, he addresses lust, respect, denial, risk, acceptance and more. His love for God and the Bible is clear, as is his ability to ask probing questions and offer answers that make readers think deeply about their own lives. He does a fine job using the Bible and real life to show that our physical relationships are really about spiritual relationships. This book joyfully ties, and then tightens, the knot between God and humankind.(Mar.)
