So I just finished Sex God by Rob Bell. This is a very deep book. I really didn’t know what to expect when I started reading it. But Bell has a way of taking life and examining it from angles that I would never have thought of and saying that “This is really about that” and vice-versa.
In this book Bell tries to show that Sexuality and Spirituality are intrinsically linked together and that was God’s design. Sex brings wholeness to the marriage covenant, sex bring joy, sex brings hope for eternity. Say what?! Yeah, that’s part of it.
This is a great book. Bell got in some trouble from different groups because of some statements from his last book Velvet Elvis, but this book is solid. It would be a great read for marriage counseling and pre-marriage counseling. Also for anyone trying to find wholeness and healing from sexual pain or addiction. Bell goes over a wide variety of topics and always points back to Jesus.
As you are reading you will feel like you are talking to a trusted friend and not just a writer who has divorced himself from the real world to focus on his work. Bell is real and he tells real stories of success, of hurt, of failure.
This book is a solid 4.5 out of 5.
