Description

Rob Bell is a leader and speaker who founded Mars Hill Church, Grand Rapids, USA. His recent book on Hell, "Love Wins," was surrounded by a huge publicity drive and within a day was number five in the Amazon sales rankings. The book presents itself as a series of thoughtful questions and reflections, which challenge the traditional doctrine of Hell. Though none of the arguments in "Love Wins" are original, the style and form of the book is. The questioning style is calculated to fit with modern secular fashion, and as such forms a key aspect of Bell’s strategy. There have been a number of reviews of Bell’s work; this seminar highlights the seminal significance of Bell’s communication method alongside assessing his content.
