Overview

In this highly readable and wonderfully engaging response to Rob Bell’s New York Times bestseller "Love Wins," Michael Wittmer examines Bell’s claims about “heaven, hell, and the fate of every person who ever lived” in the light of the Bible and historic Christian doctrine. Wittmer writes in the introduction, “I respect Rob Bell. He wrote Love Wins to start a dialogue about the most important issues of our faith, and this book is my attempt as an evangelical to join that conversation.”

With clarity and a gracious spirit, Wittmer provides a resource that I can hand my parishioners who are seeking answers to the questions raised in Rob Bell’s Love Wins. —Pastor David Beelen, Madison Square Church, Grand Rapids, MI

Christ Alone provides a clear assessment of Rob Bell’s Love Wins. With skill and wit, Wittmer shows that in the end, God loves and wins only if he is truly and completely who he has revealed himself to be in both living and written Word. —Pastor Jeffrey D. Halsted, Calvary Baptist Church, Grand Rapids, MI

Christ Alone deftly guides us in the art of listening to history and the text so that we might engage the conversation beyond the controversy. Not afraid to ask the questions, but ready to give an answer when there are answers to be given, Wittmer walks the line between mystery and revelation culminating in the cross and resurrection and the good news that love has already won. —Christopher R. Brewer, Founder and Director of Gospel through Shared Experience and editor of Art that Tells the Story

Readers will appreciate the combination of respect, insight and conviction. Wittmer helps us to see that the Bible’s message is not embarrassing but a compelling story that fits the reality of God's holiness and the darkness of the human heart. —Pastor Nate Archer, Peace Church, Middleville, MI

Christ Alone is a gracious, respectful biblical and theological engagement with Love Wins. Wittmer’s astute questions help readers discern the strengths and weaknesses of Rob Bell’s positions. —Professor Darwin Glassford, Calvin Theological Seminary

Wittmer’s critique of Love Wins is fair, biblical, loving, and rooted in mainstream Christian thought. Readers learn or relearn biblical interpretations, biblical doctrines, teachings of historical church leaders, and an overall appreciation of who God is and what it means to live in the balance of God's grace and justice. —Pastor Lew VanderMeer, New Community Church, Grand Rapids, MI

"Essential and discerning. People who want to get down to what the Bible says and understand clearly and logically the issues raised by "Love Wins" must read this book." —Rev. Ray Brandon, Northbridge Church, Kalamazoo, MI

Wittmer's "Christ Alone" presents us with a much needed, thoughtful and respectful response that engages and continues the discussion Rob Bell has started. It's the perfect companion book to "Love Wins'." Tony Liston, Pastor, Adventure Christian Community, Davenport, IA
