So I am kind of late to the party on the reading of Sex God by Rob Bell. It is already in a paperback edition and he has since written another book “Jesus Wants to Save Christians.”
I have heard Rob speak on several occasions, including at our church (the first church that he spoke at since he began Mars Hill), conferences and I thoroughly enjoyed his first book Velvet Elvis – not to mention his Noomas.
Rob brings a fresh voice to many Biblical themes and life subject matters and in Sex God he addresses “sex.” I was pleasantly surprised by this read. The title itself is a mystery of what and where the subject matter of this book would go.
I finished this book in just a couple of sittings and here is my initial thoughts on this book … if I had to refer an engaged-couple to a book that might be helpful to them in the new season they will be entering into -- it would be this one. This book lends a fresh look at an understanding of sex and marriage that would be very beneficial because it lends to a lot of healthy conversation and dialogue about the mentioned subject matter without it being a book exclusively on the subject matter.
Now I know there are lot more conventional books dealing with the subject of marriage directly that are helpful and I hope couples would read those type of books as well, but at this point if someone were to ask me if I knew of good book on marriage – Sex God is what I would recommend.
