Book Discussion (Velvet Elvis Intro)

Thursday’s Book Discussion

Velvet Elvis (Repainting The Christian Faith) by Rob Bell

Over the next few months we will be reading and discussing Rob Bell’s book Velvet Elvis. As we go through this book it is my hope that we go through this book that we would have honest and open discussion of various questions and topics that the author Rob Bell brings to the surface.

As you read this book, you will discover the content to be challenging, thought provoking, enlightening and inspiring.

Some of you may find some of the topics discussed in the book upsetting they even may go against your personal doctrine and theology. You may not even agree with everything the author says. However, I want to encourage you to read this book and share your thoughts and opinions as we move from chapter to chapter.

Rob Bell’s Bio

Rob Bell is the founding pastor of Mars Hill, one of the fastest growing churches in American history. He is also featured in the first series of spiritual short films called NOOMA. Rob and his wife, Kristen have two boys and live in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Velvet Elvis is divided up into seven different movements or chapters. It is a thought provoking book on repainting the Christian faith.

Brief exert from the book from Movement Three True

“We have to test everything.
I thank God for anybody anywhere who is pointing people to the mysteries of God.
But those people would all tell you to think long and hard about what they are saying and doing and creating.
Test it. Probe it.
Do that to this book.
Don’t swallow it uncritically. Think about it. Wrestle with it.
Just because I am a Christian and I’m trying to articulate a Christian worldview doesn’t mean I’ve got it nailed, I’m contributing to the discussion.
God has spoken, and the rest is commentary, right?”
