What Is the Bible?: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything by Rob Bell

What Is the Bible? (2017) takes a fresh look at the best-selling book of all time: the Holy Bible. These blinks take the Bible for what it is – a conglomeration of books written by real people in real historical contexts that are at once subversive, timeless and transformative.

  • Christians and non-Christians interested in learning about the Bible
  • Those who have left the Church
  • People with a negative view of religion who are open to new perspectives

Rob Bell is the New York Times best-selling author of Love Wins, among other titles and founder of the nondenominational Christian megachurch Mars Hill Bible Church. In 2011, he was named one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” by TIME magazine.
