A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"?

Troubling questions—so troubling that many have lost their faith because of them. Others only whisper the questions to themselves, fearing or being taught that they might lose their faith and their church if they ask them out loud.

But what if these questions trouble us for good reason? What if the story of heaven and hell we have been taught is not, in fact, what the Bible teaches? What if what Jesus meant by heaven, hell, and salvation are very different from how we have come to understand them?

What if it is God who wants us to face these questions?

Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance. The result is the discovery that the "good news" is much, much better than we ever imagined.

Love wins.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 04, 2011 – Bell, influential pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church and author of Velvet Elvis, aims to provide an introduction to some of the big questions of Jesus' life and message. Claiming that some versions of Jesus should be rejected, particularly those used to intimidate and inspire fear or hatred, Bell persuasively interprets the Bible as a message of love and redemption. He is clearly well-versed in the scriptures, and for support his arguments look to everything from the parable of the prodigal son to Revelation to the story of Moses, in addition to his own personal experiences as a pastor, many of which are the book's highlights. Bell's vision of Christianity is inclusive, as he argues against some traditional ideas--for instance, hell as eternal punishment reserved for non-Christians--in favor of a God whose love and forgiveness is all encompassing. His style is characteristically concise and oral, his tone passionate and unabashedly positive. The result is a book that, while not exploring its own ideas deeply, may be a friendly welcome to Christianity for seekers, since they don't have a dog in the fight over hell that this book has ignited among the professionally religious.

It's about time!

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.


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.

Rob Bell has many ideas, unfortunately, they are only his own

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.
