    Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"? Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance.

    Where does Love Wins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Absolute best listen so far


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Wins?

    So many times during this reading, I found myself thinking "wow, that makes so much sense."


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the very end when he brought all the concepts together and said "love wins."


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone, Christian or not, to challenge what you thought you knew about God and Jesus. This short read brought me great insight to Jesus' message and where to place it in my faith.
    For anyone that has been exposed to organized Christian religion and turned away, this read brings you back to the essence of God's love and Christ's purpose in our lives.

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Proof of Heaven to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is amazing and better than the print version because its the author, a neurosurgeon, telling his most amazing journey to Heaven and back. You can hear the deep emotion in his voice as he tells of his fate and the joy that his experience has brought to his life.


    What other book might you compare Proof of Heaven to and why?

    No other book can touch the depth and detail of Eben Alexander's description of his near death experience. His testament regarding the three different phases of his journey and the absolute love that he came to know shall one day become our newest gospel.


    What does Eben Alexander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The author brings the most credible and incredible account of what we may expect our conscience to experience at death. First, he is an Neurologist, a scientist, who's training allows him to honestly evaluate and confirm the validity of his experience. Second, the severity of his illness and the depth of his coma give us the most comprehensive view of what exists in what Edgar Cayce called the "Super Conscience." Lastly, the fact that a brain surgeon fully recovered from such an exceedingly rare and unexplainable illness, one that allowed his brain to be completely shut down thus allowing a level of an out of body experience never seen before, makes one think that a higher power was truly at work with Eben Alexander.


    If you could give Proof of Heaven a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The Gospel of Eben


    Any additional comments?

    My opinion is that God chose this time and this person to convey a truth about reality and the Love that awaits our understanding. I feel that one day Eben Alexander's story will be shown as a watershed moment where mankind truly began to comprehend our place in the Universe.
