Love Wins, the controversial bestselling book by Rob Bell, attempted to answer this question, which troubles nonbelievers and believers alike. Because Bell challenged traditional, orthodox Christian views of hell and the afterlife, many were left asking: “Are his ideas as reliable and hopeful as they sound? What does the Bible really say about hell?”

Rob Bell has started a small cottage industry in the number of books that have responded to him. Tim Challies and Kevin DeYoung were among the first full reviews, we then had the first book response by Mike Wittmer and now this by Bobby Conway. Others recently released include God Wins by Mark Galli and Erasing Hell by Francis Chan.

Many of the responses on blogs and twitter were knee-jerk responses. This brief book is more nuanced. Bobby Conway, the One Minute Apologist, realises that Bell is no...more

We live in a time when the Bible is constantly coming under scrutiny and overwhelmingly misconstrued to fit personal agendas and ideals. The most recent doctrine to come under attack has been the long-held view among Christians regarding the issue of Hell. Prompted mainly by the recent release of Rob Bell’s newest title, Love Wins, this issue has become a hot topic and source of grief to orthodox Christianity. As this book rose to the bestseller’s list, it became more and more evident that a fut...more
Not the worst book on the subject by any means; I just wasn’t that impressed with. It had a lot of the usual prooftexts for the view of Hell as a place of torment. Annihilationism didn’t even come up, except in the footnotes. It had some redeeming factors, like pointing out some problems with Rob Bell’s theology in Love Wins. But it is mostly just a call to remember that Hell is real (Hell being the place of eternal torment, which is assumed to be biblical with little consideration of other view...more

Pastor and author Dr. Bobby Conway, in his latest book Hell, Rob Bell, and What Happens When People Die, provides the reader with a hard-hitting yet irenic discussion of the view of heaven/hell presented by Rob Bell compared to that actually revealed in Scripture. Rob Bell's book Love Wins has sparked a maelstrom of sorts among scholars and laymen alike about how matters of eternal importance. Bell clearly avers what Conway saliently labels as a "postmortem, nuanced-purgatorial, inclusivist view...more
Although this is marketed as a response to Rob Bell and Love wins it really doesn't deserve to be classified as such. Well, OK, literally it is a response I suppose. The author clearly wrote this in reaction to Bell's book but it is simply a reaffirmation of a literal and fundamentalist (for lack of a better term) view of hell. It does not engage Bell's thinking or intentions in any real way and a number of times flat out misrepresents his views.

The author insists on eternal conscious torment fo...more
