Publisher's 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)

Thank you Rob Bell

I binge-listened to this book.
It was rich and compelling.
Reminded me of the days watching Cosmos with Carl Sagan at my grandfather’s house when I was a teenager.

Utterly incredible

This book is hard to find words for.
Deep. Light. Wide. Subtle. Explosive.
Rob maps the human experience within a cosmos, within a womb, with humour, with wonder, with fierce courage and delicate connection.
This book is all the things.
Life and perspective changing.

Loved every minute

Unlike robs early criticism here’s a review that’s actually about the book! Rob you’re perfect to listen to when running and driving and I’m sad the book is over as when you started talking about how we’re made it felt like only the beginning of everything being spiritual! Please write more and come back to Sydney to do the show! 💖💖💖

A book about everything

I wasn't expecting how personal, intimate and vulnerable Rob would be as he takes us on a journey through his life. We revisit old friends with the gift of new insights. Old stories are retold and concepts that have been explored in earlier books, tours, films or on the Robcast are now brought together and laid out before us. The pain is real, but so is the joy and delight in ancient ideas and new science. Just beautiful. Allow yourself to be drawn into a richer and deeper spirituality of the whole of life.
Pastor Rob [to quote Liz Gilbert] continues to minister to the world long after he left the broken institutional church.
The audiobook version is deeply enhanced because you get to hear the author's intention and emphasis in his own voice.

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.

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.

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.
