Now in paperback, Rob Bell's Sunday Times Bestselling Love Wins is the world's most talked-about modern Christian book. Creating controversy and discussion, Love Wins gets to the heart of questions about life and death. Its perspective will surprise and challenge both Christians and atheists, and will inspire people of all faiths and none.

Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgement: 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Bell fights every impulse in our culture to domesticate Jesus [and] challenges the reader to be open to surprise, mystery and all of the unanswerables... Bell has given theologically suspicious Christians new courage to bet their life on Jesus Christ.' (Christian Century)

`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. . . . His style is characteristically concise and oral, his tone passionate and unabashedly positive.' (Publishers Weekly)

`One of the nation's rock-star-popular young pastors, Rob Bell, has stuck a pitchfork in how Christians talk about damnation.' (USA Today)

`It isn't easy to develop a biblical imagination that takes in the comprehensive and eternal work of Christ... Rob Bell goes a long way in helping us acquire just such an imagination without a trace of soft sentimentality and without compromising an inch of evangelical conviction.' (Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, and author of The Message and The Pastor)

`A bold, prophetic and poetic masterpiece. I don't know any writer who expresses the inexpressible love of God as powerfully and as beautifully as Rob Bell! No one who seriously engages this book will put it down unchanged. A `must read' book!' (Greg Boyd, senior pastor at Woodland Hills Church and author of The Myth of a Christian Nation)

`In Love Wins, Rob Bell tackles the old heaven-and-hell question and offers a courageous alternative answer. Thousands of readers will find freedom and hope and a new way of understanding the biblical story - from beginning to end.' (Brian D. McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity and Naked Spirituality)

“Eye opener.”

This book answers so many questions. It refocusses how we see our Christian walk and our approach not only to other denominations but other people who may not appear religious.
I found it made me feel more strongly... More

“Terribly Misleading”

Satan got Eve to question what God had clearly said in the garden. She was emboldened to take what God had forbidden by the devil's clever insinuation and paid for it. It astounds me that in a book about heaven... More
