Rob Bell and his ideas about Sex

Sex_godSex God — Exploring the endless connections between sexuality and spirituality (Zondervan, 2007)

Author:  Rob Bell

Highly recommend.  Bell, founding pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is a very creative thinker.  Very fast read.  Very thoughtful.

I’ll whet your appetite with these lines: 

"This is something only God can do — the creation of life — and God has given this ability to the man and the woman.

A man and a woman had sex and gave the world Nelson Mandela.  A man and woman had sex and give us Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr. and Albert Einstein.

And a man and woman had sex and gave us Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot and thousands and millions of others who have affected the course of human history. 

Sex is loaded with potential.  With possibility.  In some deeply mysterious way, the encounter between a man and a woman is loaded with the weight of the world.  Who knows what this act of sex could create?  Who knows who it could create?"
