Drew and I have the privileged of attending Mars Hill Bible Church . Rob Bell's teachings are jaw dropping, eye opening, life inspiring messages. Rob has a great gift of communication and teaching the word of God in a new light.
Today, Rob releases his new book "Love Wins." Last Saturday, I spent the entire evening reading this book cover to cover before it had been released to the public. Let me tell you something, I am very challenged by his ideas and while I may not agree with everything he says, his thought provoking questions prob me to a deeper level of questioning and understanding. The book has left me uncertain about fundamental beliefs that have been grained into my head my entire life through others. I highly recommend this book for a challenging view on Heaven, Hell, God's Love and our calling.
The book has left me with many thoughts..
i am left with more questions
i am left wrestling
with my past.
Can redemption happen here
Is Gaundi in hell?
Is a prayer the only way?
Is the gate left open?
Are the first, now the last and the last, now the first?
i am left feeling uncomfortable....
Doesn't Jesus call us to be uncomfortable, uncertain, questioning questions, loving the unloved and bringing redemption here and now?
I know for certain, I will be reading this book again and probably again. Thanks for the challenging thoughts, views and words have left my head spinning.
