Wisdom from 'Love Wins'
Author Rob Bell's latest book, Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived, sparked controversy before it even hit book stores. Early criticism of the book casted doubt on the Christian pastor's belief in Hell, and some labeled him a universalist and a heretic.
In reality, Love Wins seeks to break down the walls of rigid religiosity; it exposes the heart of faith, the fate of the world and how they are connected. The book is a challenging read, but a necessary one because, within it, the author reveals where the Church has missed the mark in sharing the most important message of all time.
In the midst of heresy and confusion regarding the book's content and its meaning, here are five simple truths to take away from Love Wins.
