The ZimZum of Love

Full Product Description

In The Zimzum of love, Rob Bell and his wife Kristen Bell revolutionise traditional misconceptions of what it takes to build and maintain a happy, fulfilling, Christian marriage.

Using an effective and enlightening comparison from Hebrew religious thinking, the bestselling author of Love Wins transforms how you understand your role in nurturing a spiritually and emotionally strong bond that will resist the pressures and tensions of life today.

Hebrew philosopher, Isaac Luria described God's creation of free space for humanity as placing Himself where he could provide the complex resources for His creation to fully develop. Bell applies the same term used by Luria - 'Zimzum' - to describe how each partner in a marriage needs to make space and provide support for the other to flourish.

Rob and Kristen Bell apply the concept of Zimzum; where God, in order to have a relationship with the world gave of himself to create space, to the sacred relationship of marriage. In marriage, insist Rob and Kristen, zimzum is the dynamic energy that holds two partners close. But this energy is only present when each person's self is prepared to contract  to allow the other to flourish.

This, they prove, is the secret of what makes your marriage flourish.

Rob and Kristen Bell are open and honest about their own difficulties, having suffered and triumphed through many ups and downs along the way. In this instructive but never lecturing book, they explore the secret of what makes a truly happy and fulfilling marriage. Zimzum is a unique approach to whole life fulfillment; going right to the heart of the extraordinary emotional connection that binds two people.

Writing as a team. Rob and his wife Kristen will change how you consider marriage by providing a new insight that will help you create a satisfying and sacred union of our own.

Publisher's Description

Marriage is complex because people are complicated. You think you know each other so well that you're almost one person. But then there are moments when it's shockingly obvious that you're two, with two opinions and two ways of doing things. And these moments can be relationship flashpoints whether it's over money, politics, child-rearing or what you're going to watch on TV tonight. So how do you stop yourself flaring up when you and your spouse disagree and start seeing marriage as a chance for you to learn more about the person you want to know best of all?

Early on in their marriage Rob and Kristen experienced the struggles, disagreements and fights that come to all couples. They still do. But they quickly learned that if they were to fulfil their desire of a great marriage, they had to be proactive, focused and intentional about their relationship and learn how to fight in the most productive way possible!

In this inspiring and humorous insight into their approach to marriage, the popular husband and wife team explore communication, dealing with relatives, sex, petty fights, money, work and boundaries, as well as love, forgiveness, fidelity, faith and hope because something happens when two people give themselves fully to each other, something profound and mystical, something with endless depth and dimension, something spiritual and that's the ZimZum of Love.

There's the ideal of marriage, and then there's the reality of marriage: this book is about bringing those two closer together.
