"A Field Trip to Hell is well worth the literary ride! I enjoyed it mainly because of the personal appeal that seemed to go with it. It was written from the perspective of someone who has done his research on this subject. Kudos to the author for an incredible read."

"After reading the chapter that takes readers on the actual Field Trip to Hell, I must admit that I have never read anything quite like it. This book stretches across Christian and non-Christian audiences. It was one of a kind and I hope it ends up on the best-sellers list."

Kevin earned a full athletic scholarship to play Division I basketball at the University of Delaware where he attended college for (2) years.

Liberty University is the world's largest Evangelical Christians Schools, founded by the late, great Chancellor, Rev. Dr. Jerry Falwell. Liberty's basketball team made history in 1994-1995 by being the first Christian School to ever play in the NCAA tournament against another Philadelphia native and friend, Rasheed Wallace and the North Carolina Tar Heels. Kevin was also blessed to meet his college sweetheart and wife, Nikki Benton, at Liberty, whom he married on September 13, 1997.
Upon leaving Liberty, Kevin had also had the opportunity to play professional basketball in Europe and in Asia, among a host of other countries that he played in. While playing in China, during the leagues Christmas celebration, Kevin had the opportunity to meet and to be featured on the front page of the Chinese newspaper shaking hands with his favorite martial artists, actor and special guest, Jackie Chan.
Kevin was also invited to some N.B.A. summer camps during his career, including the Philadelphia 76ers, where he played against multiple N.B.A. Champions, Kobe Bryant and Rick Mahorn. Other N.B.A. players included Jerome Allen of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Paul "Snoop" Graham of the Atlanta Hawks, Shawn Harvey of the Dallas Mavericks and a host of many other great professional basketball players.

Kevin was invited on the CBS News Early Show hosted by Susan Koeppen , which aired nationally. As the only former professional athlete in the group, he participant in the Power*Balance Performance Technology Energy Band Exercise Experiment, at The Sports Complex at the Chelsea Piers in New York City. The experiment was done by none other than the world's leading mind reader, mentalist and myth buster, Steve Banacheck. N.B.A players and professional athletes in various different sports wear these wrist bands to give themselves the much needed edge. The experiment was conducted to test the authenticity of the bands. The experiment was a lot of fun but the results were very, very interesting.
Kevin was also featured on the FOX 29, 10 o'clock News as a camp counselor, working a well respected Basketball Camp that helps kids. The name of the camp was called the Germantown Friends Basketball, Reading, Computer Summer Camp.

In Kevin's awesome book, readers will, surprisingly despite the title, be encourage and be inspired by his personal story of trails, troubles and tribulations, (or what we sometimes refer to as having gone through "hell" in our personal lives), that continuously leads to triumph. Afterwards, in a fictional and non-threatening way, he informs readers by taking them on a very descriptive tour of the afterlife underworld called Hell, where they can experience the 30 revealed torments of Hell firsthand, without having to stay for eternity. He has an awesome personal testimony that is sure to move and motivate everyone and really enjoys talking about his topically unusual, thought provoking book.

The bottom line is that everything is never as it appears, and what a person says is alot different from how a person LIVES. That is one of the main things that Benton uses the scriptures to showcase. We can't honestly believe that we can live however we would like, do whatever we would like and that God will see us as Christlike when our lives don't reflect that.
Benton also says something else that is of note: hell is not just for "bad people". He says "One does not go to hell because of what one does, but because of what one believes." That is a sobering thought, especially as we think about the importance of not judging others. We can't know what a person really believes. We might expect to see a physical manifestation of their belief system, but it is unfair to assume that just because we don't personally see it that it isn't there.
At the end of the day, I see this book as a reminder as to why not every trip is worth the ride. We have to be careful what we choose and how we decide to live in order to make sure that the future is how we would like for it to be.
Kudos to the author for an incredible read.
Benton wants to share his perspectives with others so they can weigh their own spiritual state. Many books have been written signaling the end of the world and accounting for the ultimate destiny of humankind. Many of them have been effective in detailing the coming days of both prosperity and disasters of epic portion. Few of them, however, have been as fascinating, poignant, and instructional as this one.
God has not given us a spirit of fear, but we should all have a proper fear of going to hell. I highly recommend this book.
Benton combines his personal experiences with stories and lessons from the Bible to explain his perspective.Read more ›
