Description

In Love Wins, bestselling author, international teacher, and speaker Rob Bell (Velvet Elvis, Drops Like Stars) addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith—hell and the afterlife—arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever?

Rob Bell is an electrifying, unconventional pastor whom Time magazine calls “a singular rock star in the church world,” with millions viewing his NOOMA videos.

With searing insight, Bell puts hell on trial with a hopeful message—eternal life doesn’t start when we die; it starts right now. And ultimately, Love Wins.

    From CanadianBob
    People REALLY should read this book prior to commenting and comment on what it actually says and not just on what they think it says. It's a book about asking questions, some of those questions which have often been taboo. It explores the wide path of historical understanding of the issues rather than just parrotting the popular contempory views. It isn't intended to form a "new theology" but to open up a conversation which may cause us to question things that are long overdue a reconsideration. And his writing style is unique...it may not appeal to all, but it is how he communicates, and it effectively gets his thoughts accross. Truth isn't so fragile that it can't stand a 2nd look to question if we are sure that we know what we think we know. If there is a God in heaven, I hardly think he is shaking in his robes now that this book is available on iTunes (or in the bookstore for that matter), but may actually be relieved that finally SOMEBODY is questioning some of the assumptions that have taken on a type of dogma that does not reflect his actual character. And if this book is just another "fad" book, it will pass into obscurity like so many others. If it contains truth we need to examine, let's pray that it gets a decent hearing. And it is a great read.

    Thanks for jumping out on the limb Rob, and daring to wrap words around what you suspect may be true. By this time you have been sufficiently maligned by the "band of older brothers" who could never imagine just how amazing God's grace might actually be. Courageous … GREAT news. A story that we can tell passionately. Karl Ingersoll

    A book like this is long overdue. Rob tackles questions about the Christian faith head on. I'll be reading this one again, even slower than the first time, to really let the content sink in.
  • Rob Bell has many ideas, unfortunately, they are only his own

    From Kd7iwp
    One of the most important parts of this book is the preface where Bell states that there is no eternal place of torment. Since he claims to follow the Bible, I would like to know where he gets that idea. Bell has a catchy writing style but is rather amateur in that he constantly writes short, terse sentences and they usually are small questions. This isn't a book that provides many, if any, answers. While most of the questions are indeed Leading Questions, they lead to personal ideas, not ideas that can be found in the Bible. This text is designed to market the Bible in a way that everyone can make Jesus be whoever they want him to be, rather than the actual person he is.
