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"? Troubling questions—so troubling that many have lost their faith because of them. Others only whisper the questions to themselves, fearing or being taught that they might lose their faith and their church if they ask them out loud. But what if these questions trouble us for good reason? What if the story of heaven and hell we have been taught is not, in fact, what the Bible teaches? What if what Jesus meant by heaven, hell, and salvation are very different from how we have come to understand them? What if it is God who wants us to face these questions? 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. The result is the discovery that the "good news" is much, much better than we ever imagined. Love wins.

The fascinating and very moving story of the lovers, lawyers, judges and activists behind the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that led to one of the most important, national civil rights victories in decades—the legalization of same-sex marriage. In June 2015, the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law in all fifty states in a decision as groundbreaking as Roe v Wade and Brown v Board of Education. Through insider accounts and access to key players, this definitive account reveals the dramatic and previously unreported events behind Obergefell v Hodges and the lives at its center. This is a story of law and love—and a promise made to a dying man who wanted to know how he would be remembered. Twenty years ago, Jim Obergefell and John Arthur fell in love in Cincinnati, Ohio, a place where gays were routinely picked up by police and fired from their jobs. In 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that the federal government had to provide married gay couples all the benefits offered to straight couples. Jim and John—who was dying from ALS—flew to Maryland, where same-sex marriage was legal. But back home, Ohio refused to recognize their union, or even list Jim’s name on John’s death certificate. Then they met Al Gerhardstein, a courageous attorney who had spent nearly three decades advocating for civil rights and who now saw an opening for the cause that few others had before him. This forceful and deeply affecting narrative—Part Erin Brockovich, part Milk, part Still Alice—chronicles how this grieving man and his lawyer, against overwhelming odds, introduced the most important gay rights case in U.S. history. It is an urgent and unforgettable account that will inspire readers for many years to come.

On his return after six years’ fighting with the Duke of Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars, Colonel Romney Wood, who has just become Lord Heywood, is horrified at the state of the country he left behind, where agricultural labourers are now starving, food shops are bare and Luddites lay waste new agricultural machinery. Worse still his own estate is almost bankrupt and he has to find something to sell to save it and his loyal staff from penury. He is considerably hampered because his grandfather has legally entailed everything of value onto future generations of Lord Heywoods and so he cannot dispose of virtually anything without the Trustees’ approval, which he knows will not be forthcoming. Scouring Heywood Abbey, his country home, for possible items to sell, he is astonished when he stumbles across something he is soon to prize beyond price – a beautiful, fawn-like young girl with deep blue eyes in a white diaphanous nightgown. She is an interloper and a runaway, hiding from her wicked uncle, who is forcing her into marriage with a man she despises. Her name is Lalita. But more than that she will not tell Lord Heywood. Yet slowly she reveals more of herself to him – and with each revelation the bond between them grows. And in spite of himself Lord Heywood is falling in love. They are two people with nothing left to lose and maybe only love to win.

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.

Alex Kuisis was a happily married early-childhood-educator-turned-event-planner-turned-health coach, living what she considered to be a beautiful and fulfilling life in Denver, Colorado when the doorbell rang on September 1, 2016. It was the police, there to arrest her for seven felony crimes that she did not commit. She quickly realized that when someone we deeply love turns around and causes us heart-shattering pain and suffering, it can traumatize us to the very core of our soul. Fortunately, she also learned that our hardships do not define us. The way we choose to rise in their aftermath does. "Truth Matters, Love Wins" is an astounding account of fighting false accusations in a slanted criminal justice system, but it goes far beyond that.

Alex’s dedication to surviving her darkest hour by relying on faith, love, and her trust in all that is good about the world will captivate and inspire you. A must-read for anyone curious about how to exorcise the pain and anger that accompanies life’s most devastating curveballs, “Truth Matters, Love Wins” showcases the pure spiritual power of keeping love close when you know you have the truth on your side.

During the summer of 2011, armed with a camera and a map, award-winning Canadian filmmaker and photographer Afzal Huda set out to chronicle the Separation Wall in Palestine. His aim was to magnify the ugly face of the Wall and depict the contradictions and hardships endured by human beings living under a military occupation. He was intent on showing the world what it was like to live in an open air prison and how Palestinians have developed ways to cope with the Wall's existence. Afzal spent three weeks doing just that: visiting all the Palestinian areas along the Wall and interviewing people young and old from all walks of life. But instead of the overwhelming reality of misery and suffering he had witnessed with his own eyes, his camera caught images of a contrasting nature: photos of people and faces of compassion, perseverance and hope rarely seen in mainstream media’s usual portrayal of Palestinians. The resulting book—conceived and beautifully designed by Waleed Abu-Ghazaleh—is a powerful photo journal that depicts the humanity of a resilient people. It is divided into four parts, each starting with a short introduction in English, Spanish, German, French, and Chinese followed by brief statistics taken from United Nation sources. It includes: • Images of the Wall as a physical barrier: how it dissects towns and farmland • Images of Palestinians living under its shadow: checkpoints, gates and the resultant poverty • Images of solidarity: support from international artists and visitors as well as local inhabitants • Images of perseverance and hope

How God is described today strikes many as mean, primitive, backward, illogical, tribal, and at odds with the frontiers of science. At the same time, many intuitively feel a sense of reverence and awe in the world. Can we find a new way to talk about God? Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell does here for God what he did for heaven and hell in Love Wins: he shows how traditional ideas have grown stale and dysfunctional and reveals a new path for how to return vitality and vibrancy to how we understand God. Bell reveals how we got stuck, why culture resists certain ways of talking about God, and how we can reconnect with the God who is with us, for us, and ahead of us, pulling us forward into a better future—and ready to help us live life to the fullest.
