i just picked up sex god by rob bell today. quite a title, no? i have to admit, the fundie in me gasped a little bit when i saw it. and there are plenty of others, burning torches in hand, who are doing more than just gasping. it’s funny how rob bell incites such strong reactions from people: people either really love him or really hate him. while i can’t say i agree with everything he writes, i do believe his voice is a refreshing – and necessary – one.
i’m sure there is some shock-value intent in that title, but i’m very interested to see where this all leads. the subtitle is, “exploring the endless connections between sexuality and spirituality.” i might try to trek out to ucla for his q+a session — hopefully, there will be some fruitful conversation there.
