Heaven and Hell

Edit: I haven't written much about heaven and hell myself; this post is merely pictures and questions. If and when I do so, I will link to it. In the meantime, you might check out these two good books on the subjects:

Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church by N.T. Wright

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis

Edit 2: And here is my first, brief, thoughts on heaven: "Daddy, be a monster..."

Apparently the news of Rob Bell's upcoming book is causing even more of a stir than I realized.  Scott McKnight has some comments about it over at CT and lots of others are blogging and commenting. 

I think that part of what is going on here is simply that Bell has hit upon an important and controversial topic which people are interested in talking about: Heaven and Hell. You can certainly find some cool pictures of heaven and hell if you google that phrase :)

Heaven Or Hell Request

I liked those two. 

So, just to throw this out there, do you wonder about heaven and hell? What kind of questions do you ask? What do you think about them? What good books would you recommend on them?

Both of them complete hogwash.

That's also the title of one of my favorite albums ever. RIP Dio!!!

Of course hell doesn't exist. To me that's just a no brainer. Neither Heaven nor Hell are prominent or well defined concepts in the Bible.
