Drops Like Stars - Rob Bell Wow. What an incredible book.Rob Bell has a way of getting to the heart of the matter and presenting in such a way that you just know it to be the truth.His topic this time is creativity and suffering. He never states a clear thesis but this book is more art and poetry than academic tome.The section where he speaks on the prodigal son was really powerful to me, as was the discussion on boxes (in the box, out of the box, having your boxes destroyed).Rob Bell brings to the table a version of Christianty that really connects with me. His compassion, his understanding not only of Jesus but of humanity and how the two intersect/connect, his abilty to express ideas and beliefs without sounding like he's talking down to his readers- everything about this man screams (at least to me) of a man doing God's work.The last story, about his nephew, was one of the really great moments, one that will stick with me for a long time. Lots to think about moving forward, tons of info to work through even though the actual word count of the books is very low.Excellent work.
