What Is the Bible?: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything by Rob Bell

My internet crashed yesterday and so I picked up a book I had purchased a few months ago and has been sitting on the To Be Read Pile.

The Bible lives in more ways than one.

As someone with a bachelor’s degree in Biblical and Theological Studies and a master’s in Theological Studies from a seminary north of Boston, MA, I was blown away by how much Rob Bell taught me in this book. I opened it. I read the first sentence. Then I devoured it in one sitting, my heart leaping with excitement and joy the entire way through it.

Having come to think that was not the best way to read it, I am now going to reread it, one chapter a day, in prayerful meditation.

Every person who picks this book up is going to get something out of it. If you are a person who has questions about the Bible, this book is for you. If you have a friend who is into the Bible, and you can’t figure out why this book will tell you. If you have been reading and faithfully studying the Bible for a long time, I think this book has something to offer you.
