Love Wins: What Are We Afraid Of?

I just read the first chapter of Rob Bell’s new book “Love Wins,” in which he asks some deep questions about the foundations of the Christian faith and specifically the afterlife. They are the kind of questions asked at 11 pm during a youth group retreat. Students feel open to question and discuss these issues but sometimes adults cringe in fear.

What are we afraid of?

As I read through the book I will use this blog to spur on honest, civil discussions on the questions raised in this book. We cannot run from these questions but must engage them through the lens of Scripture.

Here are the links to each chapter I reviewed:

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

Chapter 7

Chapter 8
