More About the Author

Bobby Conway grew up in California. As a young athlete and quintessential Californian the furthest thing from his mind during his youth years was God. In fact, Bobby never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ until he was nineteen years of age. While playing college baseball in Southern California, a teammate invited him to church to hear an evangelist by the name of Greg Laurie. After several visits to hear this evangelist and many questions later, Bobby was ready to give his life to Jesus Christ. This marked a moment of colossal change in Bobby's story. Bobby gave up the baggage from his past, let go of his vices and fully surrendered to live his life for Jesus Christ. Bobby has been quoted as saying, "The last job my buddies from the past would have ever imagined me doing is serving as a pastor or Christian apologist!"

After coming to Christ, Bobby plugged into a great church in Orange County, CA. It was during this time in 1996, where dramatic change began to take place in his life. As he was discipled in the Scriptures, he experienced incredible growth, freedom and joy which culminated in the Lord leading him toward a life devoted to ministry with the goal of planting a church. His life as a growing disciple of Jesus was to share the story of God's salvation to anyone and everyone with whom he came in contact. As he matured spiritually, he developed a deep thirst for Truth, apologetics, evangelism and discipleship and these would become pillars in his personal approach to ministry.

To prepare further for his calling, he moved to Arkansas to attend school. There he met and married his wife, Heather, whom Bobby describes as his "best friend." God prepared Bobby and Heather for the dream of starting a church by giving Bobby practical hands on experience through a leadership residency at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, an internship opportunity at Fellowship Bible Church North in Plano, Texas, and an associate teaching pastor position at a church in Conway, Arkansas.

After Bobby received his under graduate degree in Bible in Conway, Arkansas, he moved to Dallas where he earned his Masters of Theology (ThM) from Dallas Theological Seminary. From there, he would go on to attain a Doctorate of Ministry in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is currently researching out different Ph.D. programs and hopes to enter one in the near future. A voracious reader, Bobby enjoys pouring over books on theology, apologetics and contemporary issues.

Upon graduating from Dallas Seminary, he moved to Huntersville, North Carolina with a team of leaders who shared his passion for planting a church in the booming Charlotte Metrolina Region. In 2004, Life Fellowship Church was founded at the Havana Social Club and today it is a thriving church in that area. Life Fellowship enjoys a vibrant and growing ministry and currently meets at the Community School of Davidson where hundreds of people gather for their multiple Sunday services and Life University classes and then reconnect throughout the week in to meet in Life Group home fellowships. There is a spirit of excitement in the services as this spiritual family enjoy expository and substantive teaching, meaningful and contemporary worship and praise and practical training for doing "life" together.

Bobby is also the visionary founder and host of the One-Minute Apologist, a creative You Tube ministry designed to give quick answers to curious questions. Furthermore, Bobby is the author of the book, "Hell, Rob Bell and What Happens When People Die?" He is a conference speaker, radio guest and spokesperson about today,s most pressing questions.

Bobby and his wife Heather also serve on the Family Life "Weekend to Remember" marriage conference speaking team. Together they fly to major cities where they enjoy challenging and equipping married couples with tools for experiencing a God-centered marriage. Bobby,s hobbies include: spending time with his wife and two children: Dawson and Haley as well as working out and reading LOTS of books.

I highly recommend this book if you have read Rob Bell's book, and really, even if you haven't.

If you are confused about the issue of hell, pick this one up. It is very straight-forward, and uses Scripture to teach us about hell instead of the author's opinions. Imagine that. The attitude of the author can be summed up by this quote from the book: "So we must ask ourselves, to which words will we entrust our eternal destiny--Bell's or the Bible's? Our first response always should be, `What does the Bible say?' Not, `What do I *want* it to say?' ... When we find our hearts rebelling against God's clearly defined Word, we need to ask ourselves, `Why am I resisting this?'" Ponder these thoughts, then read the book. It's a quick read, but has plenty of punch packed inside.

I was provided a copy from the publisher for review, however, was not required to give a favorable one.

Very informational with lots of scripture verses to back up what Mr. Conway states. Hard to put it down.

A "response" to Rob Bell's "Love Wins" more in conversation with the general audience, especially those who are not Christians, than really with Bell or the issues he brought up in the book.

The author attempts to keep the discussion accessible to most readers and does fairly well at showing a lot of the challenges with the arguments Bell makes for his position. Most of the "meta" issues are not addressed, but a lot of the particular Scriptures used by Bell improperly are clarified, and the author does well at showing how Bell does not really address God's holiness, justice, and wrath.

The author does well at showing how serious hell is and attempts to treat the issue with respect and humility.

The author's portrayal of heaven is questionable; Bell's presentation of the resurrection seems to be a bit more accurate (although even there some things are iffy). The appeal to the "plan of salvation" is a bit ironic; he mentions how many things are often neglected in discussing what is necessary to be saved, and then goes ahead and neglects baptism as necessary for salvation (Acts 2:38, Romans 6:3-7, 1 Peter 3:21).

If you are looking for a short discussion of the relevant issues that mostly handles the issues with respect, this is a good resource. It is no substitute for actually reading Bell's book so as to understand the opposing view, and it does not dig too deeply into the issue; that is handled in other books that have arisen.

Brief and to the point. Written to be easily understood. Well grounded in Scripture, though the discussion on Heaven would lead one to believe that you receive a new body upon death; you receive a resurrected body upon Jesus' return. Until then your spirit only is with Jesus in the heavenly realms.

Well, OK, literally it is I suppose. The author clearly wrote this in response to Rob Bell and Love Wins but it is really simply a reaffirmation of a literal and fundamentalist view of hell. It does not engage Bell's thinking or intentions in any real way and a number of times flat out misrepresents his views.

The author insists on eternal conscious torment for the majority of humanity based on nothing more than a handful of verses and an insistence that this is what the church has always taught. He fails to wrestle with nature of the parables that Jesus used when talking of hell or the complicated nature of Revelation. He simply quotes a verse and insists it means only what he says it means and anyone who disagrees is not basing their theology on the Bible.

This type of book will persuade no one who doesn't already agree with it and is laughable in its inability to understand the audience Bell is seeking to reach. Lastly, while the author agrees there is more to the Christian faith than who gets in to heaven the entire premise of the book is that if you don't believe in eternal conscious torment for billions and billions of people you are undermining the gospel.

The author may want to be humble and gracious but he is offering nothing more than turn or burn theology. I certainly hope other book seeking to engage Rob Bell offer something more than theology by assertion.
