Here’s a quote from a review by Publishers Weekly of the forthcoming book Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections Between Sexuality and Spirituality from Rob Bell:

Bell raises the bar with this evocative follow-up to last year’s bestseller Velvet Elvis. “Is sex a picture of heaven?” he wonders. It’s all about God and sex and heaven, he says: “…they’re connected. And they can’t be separated. Where the one is you will always find the other.”

You may mark my words, when this book hits the shelves Rob Bell will explode as a cultural icon into spiritually petrifying mainstream evangelical churches becoming the Elvis of Emergent. You can read the rest of this review at, just scroll down about a third of the page.
