Love wins : a Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived by Rob Bell( Book )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,644 libraries worldwide
"Bestselling author of VELVET ELVIS and the 2 million-plus selling Nooma videos, Rob Bell, reveals a secret deep in the heart of millions of Christians-they don't believe what they have been taught are the essential truths of their faith. Out of respect for their tradition, they keep quiet, confiding to a few close friends their doubts and questions about salvation, Jesus, and, of course, God. Is Jesus really the only way into heaven? Is God "good" if he is planning on sending billions of people to eternal torment in hell? Are Christians the only ones who have it "right," and everyone else is just deceived? Bell brings out to the open and faces squarely the questions on everyone's mind: Does it really make sense that God is a loving, kind, compassionate God who wants to know people in a personal way, but if they reject this relationship with Jesus, they will be sent to hell where God will eternally punish them forever? In LOVE WINS, Bell goes to the heart of these issues and argues that the church's traditional understanding of heaven and hell is actually not taught by the Bible. Bell is emphatically not offering a new view of heaven and hell-instead, he closely examines every verse in the Bible on heaven and hell and shows what they really teach. And he discovers that Jesus's most fundamental teaching about heaven and hell is, "Love wins.""--

God and sex go together. You can't separate the two, says Rob Bell, because this physical world is intimately linked to deeper spiritual realities.

Jesus wants to save Christians : a manifesto for the church in exile by Rob Bell( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 395 libraries worldwide
There is a church not too far from us that recently added a $25 million addition to their building. Our local newspaper ran a front-page story not too long ago about a study revealing that one in five people in our city lives in poverty. This is a book about those two numbers. It's a book about faith and fear, wealth and war, poverty, power, safety, terror, Bibles, bombs, and homeland insecurity, it's about empty empires and the truth that everybody's a priest, it's about oppression, occupation, and what happens when Christians support, animate and participate in the very things Jesus came to set people free from. It's about what it means to be a part of the church of Jesus in a world where some people fly planes into buildings while others pick up groceries in Hummers. - Publisher

"We always think we know what's missing from our lives in order to really make us happy don't we? How often do we want something only to find out that it wasn't that great after all?

"Movies, music, TV, Internet, cell phones, and a never-ending barrage of advertising. There's always something going on. Always noise in our lives. But maybe there's a connection between the amount of noise in our lives and our inability to hear God. If God sometimes feels distant to us, maybe it's not because he's not talking to us, but simply because we aren't really listening"--Container

Suffering the loss of someone we love can be the most difficult thing in life to deal with. One moment we have them and the next they're gone. What are we supposed to do? How are we supposed to feel? The truth is, there's no certain way we're "supposed" to feel. It's okay to feel shock, anger, or denial. It's okay to have no answers and no explanations. Sometimes all the reasoning and comforting words aren't what we need. What might help us, however, is to understand how Jesus dealt with this kind of loss

"What does it mean to have a relationship with God? Maybe it's through trusting Jesus and living the kind of life he taught us to live - a life of truth, love, justice, compassion, forgivenss, and sacrifice -that we have a relationship with God. Maybe the way we live every day, every single choice we make, determines how in tune with God we are."
