Velvet Jesus?

Check out THIS REVIEW of Rob Bell's Velvet Elvis.

Jesus answered Nicodemus, " You must be born again . . ."
Before the new birth happens to us, we are spiritually dead; we are morally selfish and rebellious and we are legally guilty before God's law and under his wrath. Our rebellion is so deep that we cannot detect or desire the glory of Christ in the gospel. Therefore, if we are going to be born again, it will rely decisively and ultimately on God.
Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God."
"You MUST be born again."

Does this post mean you agree with the reviewer? Have you read the book?

Not sure what that has to do with the post. Try to stay on topic please.

I have read the book. I think it's junk.

I have not read the book, but am familiar with Rob Bell. Much of what he says sounds very good if you do not think it through. However, in end his teachings lead us away from the foundation of our faith and can lead to a religion based on how we feel not Biblical truths. Unfortunately this type of teaching is growing more and more popular.
