- Rob Bell argues that the eternal life starts before we die and we can enter either heaven or hell, depending on whether we accept and embrace love or turn away from it
- Goes through a lot of Bible verses and examples and shows how Jesus was all about love. I can’t relate to a lot of the examples but I very much can and agree with the general theme of the book, love wins even if not directly observable or obvious
- Love demands freedom
- God is love and turning away from that love leads to unlove or unhappiness (Hell)
What I got out of it
- This was a book that is out of my typical comfort zone but I think there are a lot of great lessons to be taken out of it. Mainly, there is no downside to love. Love yourself and everyone around you and you will live a happy life. Eternal life doesn’t start once we die, we can choose to live in heaven every minute of every day. But, by turning away from love we enter hell immediately.
