Hell, Rob Bell, and What Happens When People Die
by Bobby Conway
When I saw this book was available for my Nook, I immediately downloaded it. I had been wanting to read one of the several "response books" to Rob Bell's Love Wins, but hadn't had the chance to do so yet. I had also tried to read Rob Bell's book, but put it down after one chapter. I realized that the questions Bell brought up, as well as his irreverent writing style in this book were more off-putting than I was willing to take. That and the fact that I knew the things he was saying were biblically wrong, but I had no idea how to refute them. Enter Bobby Conway, known as the "one minute apologist." He lovingly but firmly addresses Bell's misguided philosophy on hell with scripture.
I would recommend this book to anyone. I think it is very important to understand the false teachings that are out there, and be able to defend our faith whenever necessary, as it says in I Peter 3:15-16: "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." I really appreciate the time and effort that both Bobby Conway and Waterbrook Multnomah put into writing and publishing this very important book. I think now I would be able to read Bell's book and be able to explain, with scripture, why Bell's teaching is misguided.
