Today’s Shelf Awareness Maximum Shelf pick is Rob Bell’s powerful exploration into understanding your purpose in the world, EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL: Who We Are and What We’re Doing Here.
Our home is a universe of endless dynamic connections that never stop inviting us to participate in the great mysterious love at the heart of it all. EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL is a brief history of how these ideas about creation, love, and connection shaped the author–and can shape every one of us. In this book, Rob Bell explores the concept that what people really want, more than anything, is to understand their purpose here–so much so that it gives them an abiding sense of awe and wonder. And when you embrace where and who you come from and your wounds and pains and regrets, you will discover that there’s an invitation lurking there in the mess of life: an invitation to expand just like the universe has been doing for 13 billions years.
There is a space beyond all the parts and divisions and differences and polarization where you see that it’s all one connected whole and it’s all rigged in favor of your growth, expansion, and joy.
“The Bell who appears in these pages is thoughtful, fun-loving, whimsical and kind. Most of all, he is held in thrall by a deep curiosity and wonder: about the universe, the world, the human heart, and every single story that might possibly shed the tiniest bit of light on any of the above.”–Shelf Awareness
