Summary:

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.

    Jesus offended the mind to reveal the heart in most circumstances where he was teaching. This book will do the same in you. Refreshing insight!

    I can heartily recommend this book. I even bought the print edition after listening to the audio version. If you love asking questions, you'll enjoy this book. If you want all the questions answered, you'll get frustrated. But for me, this book opens up the debate about heaven and hell and makes a lot of the stodgy "you'll go to hell unless you believe exactly what I say" look somewhat ridiculous.
