Some book length responses to Rob Bell’s Love Wins are already being published by good authors such as Michael Wittmer, and Mark Galli. But I am especially excited that Francis Chan is writing one. The humility, earnestness, and compassion he expresses in the video below are part of what generates this excitement. But it is his plea for prayer that especially excites me. This isn’t because of what this communicates about Chan, though that is admirable and to imitated. No, what excites me is how God can answer these prayers. I am praying that Erasing Hell will be Biblically faithful, God-honoring, and outsell Love Wins. I am praying that this book be used by God to turn evil for good, to turn hearts from heresy to truth, and to turn evangelicals and unbelievers to the evangel.
