"In Everything Is Spiritual, Rob Bell updates Teilhard de Chardin's Catholic mysticism, makes sexier Werner Heisenberg's quantum physics, and baptizes Jewish Kabbalah in an exciting vision of the future of human evolution. Bell challenges the notion that science and belief are at war with his sublime fusion of Christian faith and modern evolutionary science. Bell's book is the perfect antidote to the plague of an evangelical worldview that is captive to imperial dreams and a literalism that kills the spirit of Christianity. Everything Is Spiritual is a bracing and stirring manifesto for a fresh contemporary vision of an ancient faith." -- MICHAEL ERIC DYSON, New York Times bestselling author of TEARS WE CANNOT STOP"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 bestselling author of BIG MAGIC and CITY OF GIRLS "Bell is at the forefront of a rethinking of Christianity in America." -- TIME MAGAZINE
