In March, Love Wins for Teens: If God Threw a Party, Would Everyone Be Invited? Would You?, will be released. I think that this is going to be a great resource for teenagers. I worked with students for several years and this is the vision of God they are longing for. If the teen edition is anything as compelling as the original, this is bound to be a great resource.
Here’s the book trailer:
Here’s the description:
Love Wins shot to the top of the bestsellers list and started conversations among Americans about heaven and hell and compassion and the very meaning of life. Author Rob Bell’s ideas have stirred discussion, inspired hearts, and offered insight as well as understanding.
Now teens can delve into these issues in the teen edition of Love Wins. In this new book, Rob Bell focuses his attention on explaining in ways both understandable and approachable to teens how it is that “love wins”—and why that’s such an important lesson to learn.
If God were throwing a party, would everyone be invited?
Or does God invite some and not others?
And if so, how does God decide?
Is it what you say?
Is it what you do?
Is it what you’re going to do?
Is it who your friends are?
Or what your friends do?
Or what religion you happened to be born into?
Or where you live, or what you look like, or what you believe?
What if the idea of heaven and hell that we have been taught is not, in fact, what the Bible teaches? What if Jesus meant something very different by the concepts of heaven, hell, and salvation from how we’ve come to understand them?
And what if the answer to life’s meaning is much better than we ever imagined?
In his teen edition of the bestselling book love wins, Rob Bell tackles all these questions in a way that addresses the real challenges of growing up in today’s world. This is not just a book of questions and this is not just a book of answers.
This is a book of exploration.
This is a book of discovery.
This is a book about why love wins.
