Rob Bell is a Christian pastor who has a way of interpreting scripture that has ticked off a great many evangelicals - some even going so far as to label him a "false teacher".
So what is this message that so many evangelical preachers find so offensive? His message is LOVE.

He approaches his Christianity through the prism of Jesus' message and actions. I've long held the belief that the behavior of most Christians today is completely at odds with Jesus' ministry as presented in the gospels. How conservative Christians can rationalize and rectify their beliefs with the words and actions of Jesus I will never know, but it must require some serious mental gymnastics.
Rob Bell breaks everything down quite elegantly in his talks and books, including Love Wins which does an effective job of unpacking the mainstream christian perception of hell, and showing that scripture doesn't really jive with that perception.
We need more people who act like Jesus, and less who claim they love Jesus and follow Jesus, but completely reject his message of love, acceptance, gratitude and non-violence.
