Last April the cover story in Time Magazine was entitled What if there‘s no Hell? It was a discussion of Rob Bell’s latest book Love Wins; a Book about Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived (234 B). Bell’s premise, that every person who ever lived could have a place in heaven, whatever that turns out to be, created an uproar among evangelical leaders. He throws out probing questions about traditional biblical interpretations, mixing real-life stories with scripture. Rob Bell, pastor of the 10,000 member Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan, is the author of Velvet Elvis and the NOOMA series of DVDs.
