For progressive Christians and readers who enjoy the writings of Donald Miller, N.T. Wrighter, Brian McLaren and Timothy Keller, Rob Bell is a pioneer among those seeking a new kind of Christian teaching. "

'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.' Bell's book isn't a sex manual, an exploration of the differences between men and women or a marriage how-to, though all of that is here.
