Stirring Up the Hornet’s Nest

I’m a little late to this story, but am glad I stumbled into it today. Over the weekend, the New York Times carried a piece on Pastor Rob Bell’s new book “Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived.”

In it, he writes that it is:

“misguided and toxic [that] a select few Christians will spend forever in a peaceful, joyous place called heaven, while the rest of humanity spends forever in torment and punishment in hell with no chance for anything better.”

Interesting right? Especially since Bell is a popular, quasi-celebrity evangelical preacher who leads the Mars Hill Bible Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan numbering 10,000 members.

Predictably, the blogosphere and Twittersphere are going crazy. Read the full article to see what all the fuss is about.

“Love Wins” is a nice title for a book, no?
