REVIEW: VELVET ELVIS: Repainting the Christian Faith

Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell

This book was amazing! So many truths and insights ... I wrote down 5 pages of quotes! LOL.

Just a word of warning, though: There are some parts where Rob will say something, and the more conservative Christians may be tempted to put the book down, saying, "Ack! This isn't a Christian book!" But, keep reading. He always proves his point, and it *is* a Christian book. I loved how, right in the very beginning, Rob says to "test everything...Do that to this book...God has spoken, and everything else is commentary, right?" Amen!

Great review, Jenn! I will definitely have to add this book to my Christmas list. Sounds great. And I do love when authors tell you to check out everything they say with scripture, as that's what we should be doing anyway!! I will be visiting your blog again.
