Summary

The New York Times best-selling author's newest book is a guide to art, science, sex and death.

In Everything Is Spiritual, author Rob Bell explores how ideas about creation, love and connection shaped him and how they shape every one of us. Bell observes that more than anything, people want to understand their purpose here on earth. And when you embrace who and where you come from, including your wounds, your pains and your regrets, you will discover that lurking there in the mess of life is an invitation to expand - just as the universe has been expanding for 13 billion years.  

Written in a lyrical, almost stream of consciousness style, this wide-ranging book shares stories from Bell's life to illuminate lessons about the world around you to help you find purpose, meaning and connection.

Critic reviews

"Rob Bell might have left the church, but he will always be my minister - in the purest and most uncorrupted sense of that word. Nobody else can take ancient teachings and modern science, and blend them together into wisdom that makes sense to me, and heals me. Rob's unorthodox and bold thinking stirs my intellect, comforts my heart and makes me believe that - within all the frightening chaos of the unknowable universe - I still have a sacred place. His work is a sacred gift to a troubled world." (Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times best-selling author of Big Magic)

Not for me but glad I listened

Sad to say I found this book a little boring and not as compelling as I'd hoped when I had read the reviews. I couldn't relate so much to the author and his experiences. I could however relate to some of what he talked about. The science is a wonder and amazing.

Rob Bell brings me Back Again and Again

This book brought wonder and awe back through my heart to reality and reality to heart . This book is to all of us and us as we know it, as I believe if you only stop a moment and listen you’ll end up hearing what you were searching for - the peace in the midst of any surface chaos - order and wonder at the same time. Thank You for writing this and all other books, for podcast and bringing such support of your words and Spirit. As we are in this together. In for a joke and In for wonder, us all.

Cosmic learning

Thank you Rob for articulating a whole load of the thoughts I’ve had and never knew how to speak them out in a way I even understood. Everything is spiritual without a doubt.

Fantastic

Absolutely brilliant book, I will definitely listen again as there is a lot to consider whilst listening. I’ve always been a fan of Rob Bell, and I particularly like the fact he reads his own book, which definitely helps and makes it easy to listen to.

A Science and spiritual bouquet

Rob does not disappoint, his best yet and i highly recommend hearing on audible. He starts with the memories we all have, somehow he moves through these painful memories with a positive spin, but also holding the full weight of them. A science and spiritual lesson all in one continues our journey, not like his tour ‘everything is spiritual’, but a wider and yet more personal view. Very encouraging. thank you Rob.

Awe and wonder in abundance

You did it Rob Bell!! And I was one and wept, laughed, gasped, through it. This affirmed life, my life, truth, and released energy to accept the invitation to a radical life. Thank you.
