Love Wins

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

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

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 Publishers Weekly

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.

Customer Reviews

Love doesn't win, God wins.

Do you really want to see murderers and crooks and criminals in heaven? If everyone go's to heaven then what is the point of being good and trying not to sin? Jesus DIED for a select few, and saying "everyone go's to heaven" is like saying that Jesus died for no reason at all.
Think about it.

Judging, Books, and Covers

I thought I'd counter the previous reviewer's one-star rating with my five-star rating, just to be contentious. After all, this book HAS NOT BEEN PUBLISHED YET, so what do either of us really know about it? And although it is self-evident that the previous reviewer believes he is much more deserving of his place in heaven than those other dirty folks he mentioned (and he forgot a few, like lepers and prostitutes, but these are tiny details in a much bigger theology), I would like to point out 1 John 4:16-21 for the rest of us. God=love. Which pretty much negates the smug pseudo-comeback in the review's title. See, this is why people hate so-called "Christians": the most vocal among them fail so mightily in the one guiding commandment that was left to them by their Messiah. John 15:12 - "Love each other as I have loved you."

Reasonable?

Bobybooly, if you don't think you are a murderer, crook, and criminal saved by grace, then you're wrong. Unless you aren't saved by grace— not for me to judge. PLEASE stop hating on this man when you HAVEN'T EVEN READ HIS STUFF.
