Editorial Reviews

Review

I wanted to let you know I have read your book and felt you needed to know how deeply it touched  me. You are absolutely correct that somewhere we have lost our ability to accept Hell as a real place that people we know and in some cases love, may be spending eternity there. The description of what Hell is was also so powerful that it has made me more bold in my faith. Thank you for following the leading of the Holy Spirit and writing this book. I know lives that you don't know about are being changed both saved and unsaved!!

"This is a book that you cannot, key word "CANNOT" put down. Kevin shares his personal life and how he dealt with pressure, ridicule, love, joy, ups, & downs. This book goes beyond the topic of "Hell." Once again I highly recommend this book."
-Derek "Dreamer" Engler

"Kevin takes readers through a divine illustration of his life which exemplifies persecution and perseverance; love, honor, and integrity. The trip to Hell tugged at my emotions, transcending my knowledge of Hell. It's truly a masterpiece."
-Gerald Jordan MS,
Former Los Angeles Lakers & Harlem Globetrotter
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"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."
-Cyrus A. Webb "Conversations Book Club"
Jackson, Mississippi

"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."
-Greg D. Foster,

From the Author

God in His sovereignty and providential care has allowed some special places and people to come across my path that have helped push me closer towards my destiny. As we live out God's perfect plan for our lives, we are a sum total of the places we have been, the people we have met, and the experiences--good or bad--that accompany them. When looking through the spiritual lens of God's perspective, I understand that these places and people, and the experiences I had with them, has greatly contributed to who I am as well as the God-anointed and ordained work for such a time as this.

He earned a full athletic scholarship to play basketball at the University of Delaware where he attended college for (2) years. Sensing the call of God on his life, he left his scholarship situation at Delaware to attend Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. where he majored in Psychology and played basketball for the team. Liberty 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 the opportunity to play (3) years of professional basketball, one year in Europe and two years in Mainland China. While in China, during the leagues Christmas celebration, he was blessed to meet and to be featured on the front page of the Chinese newspaper with his favorite martial artists, actor and special guest, Jackie Chan.

He was also invited to some N.B.A. 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. Along with these experiences, during the summers he also participated in a host of missions trips overseas with Athlete n' Action and the Christ Crusaders.

As the only ex-professional athlete in the group, he was invited on the CBS News Early Show hosted by Susan Koeppen , which aired nationally, to be a participant in the POWER*BALANCE Performance Technology Energy Band Exercise Experiment , at The Sports Complex at the Chelsea Piers in New York City. N.B.A players and professional athletes in various different sports wear these wrist bands. 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 is called the Germantown Friends Basketball, Reading, Computer Summer Camp.

Kevin is currently employed by the City of Philadelphia's Department of Human Services as a Child Care Social Worker and really, really loves his job. Approaching his job with seriousness, especially due to all the horrific things that are happening to our children in today's society, he gets the opportunity to protect, share and shower them with unconditional love. In this same process, he provides professional services for children and youth, who have been abandoned, neglected, mistreated or have misbehaved. He also provides services for their families as well.

Kevin has a broken heart for the lost and a compassion for the misfortunes, pain and sufferings of people in general. To add to this, He especially has a haert for today's youth and young adults.

Kevin is an awesome persuasive speaker and is the author of the published BEST SELLING book, "A Field Trip to Hell" where readers will be, surprisingly despite the title, encourage and inspired by his personal story of trails and tribulations, or what we sometimes refer to as having gone through "hell" in life, that continuously leads to triumph. Afterwards, be informed as readers can experience the 30 revealed torments of Hell firsthand, without having to stay for eternity in a fictional and non-threatening way. He has an awesome personal testimony that is sure to motivate everyone and really enjoys talking about his unusual book.

Kevin is the Chief Section Contributor and Editor over the Christianity Department of the approved news Google site, GOD DISCUSSION, which is characterized as conservative, liberal, Christianity, religious and atheist making it a "big tent." GOD DISCUSSION is linked as a site to watch on THE REVEALER conceived by Jay Ronsen of New York University's Department of Journalism and created by Journalist Jeff Sharlet and Kathryn. GOD DISCUSSION has been cited by reputable sites such as The Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Free Republic, Democratic Underground, Science Blogs, Raw Story, Mother Jones, Crooks & Liars, Salon, Think Progress, Open Congress, RH Reality Check and Town Hall.

In regards to the book "A field trip to Hell," I must say that out of all the books I have ever read on this subject, this is the best book I have ever read, Period! I recommend this book from 13 years of age to 120 years of age. I believe this book to be very original,simple,deep,loving,& very truthful. This is a book that you cannot, key word "CANNOT" put down. This book has and will continue to change lives. Kevin shares his own personal life from way back to his childhood, his teenage years, college years and how he dealt with pressure, ridicule, love, joy, ups, & downs. How he responded is an encouragement. Kevin has a "I can" attitude. This book goes beyond the topic of "Hell." I once again highly recommend this book.

A Field Trip to Hell is a must-read for all believers and non-believers who want to know more about the reality of hell. I think this book will lead many to their "ah-ha" moment of finally getting it. The book ends with some practical steps you can take on your walk with Christ and to keep your feet away from the fire. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
The gospel of Matthew implies that it is not God's will for any person to perish. But because of the choices people make in life, will many actually perish? What will be our eternal destination? What are the realities of hell--if there is one? That is what Kevin Benton's A Field Trip to Hell is about. To call the book interesting is to say the very least. The author came to his point of view on this topic by studying what Scripture has to say on the most frequently asked questions pertaining to the hereafter. The pit stop on the field trip is hell itself, and the book is directed to either armchair tourists or those who consciously choose to make hell their final destination.
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.

Proverbs 11:30 says, "He who wins souls is wise". In Minister Kevin Benton's anointed book, he uses a foundation of love to draw people to our only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The book is well-written and detailed, with Chapter 8 being the most pivotal and poignant part of the author's work: The Rich Man and Lazarus, Abraham's Bosom, and Death is the Equalizer of Persons. This book, "A Field Trip to Hell", is a must-read for everyone!

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed Kevin Benton's book A FIELD TRIP TO HELL, mainly because of the personal appeal that seemed to go with it. This book was written from the perspective of someone who has done his research on a subject and wants to lay out in as concise a way he can the reasons why we need to make sure our actions are in line with our proclamations.

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.

Format: Paperback
The title and cover design for this book instantly grabs your attention. In my many years of reading and writing about books, I find few address the subject of Hell but Kevin Benton is passionate about it. In the introduction, he states his reason for this book: "My presupposition is that hell is a real place, and there are real people there. My purpose in writing A FIELD TRIP TO HELL is eightfold: I want, first, to explore with my readers whether there is a divine saving grace and knowledge and if the evidence shows we will be spending eternity in either heaven or hell. My second purpose is to challenge professing Christians to make sure they understand the ramifications of true faith and the afterlife. Even "professing Christians" can wind up in a real place of punishment called hell. The third purpose is to motivate believers to develop a passion about fulfilling the Great Commission. Fourth, I want to take readers on a field trip to hell by way of the Word of God incorporated into the story. I am hoping our trip will bring some understanding and clarity to the most frequently asked questions about the dreadful nature of hell while proposing some nontraditional aspects. The fifth purpose of this book is to encourage those without faith to come to faith. The sixth purpose is to encourage believers to make sure their questions on the afterlife are answered. The seventh purpose of this book is to hearten those who have made decisions for Jesus Christ. And the eighth purpose of this book is to offer some essential instructions for growth in the Christian life." (page 20 to 21).

Benton combines his personal experiences with stories and lessons from the Bible to explain his perspective.
