 Book Description (from Amazon)

Publication Date: March 15, 2011

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.

Comment by Robert D. Brinsmead

Bell has tackled the greatest and most evil monster that exists in the history of Christian thought, and that is the doctrine of a never ending chamber of tortures prepared for those who don’t make it into heaven.

Bell is now making waves dismantling hell altogether and opening heaven for everybody.  Sounds like his God is scandalously generous – so yes, we should all give Bell a hearing.  After all, the interpretation of the difficult old Bible has produced 30,000 denominations each claiming that theirs is the only correct way of interpreting it.
