GRANDVILLE, Mich. — An evangelical pastor who stirred firestorm this year with his book that questions traditional Christian beliefs about hell is leaving his Michigan megachurch to share his message with a broader audience.

A statement Thursday on the website of Mars Hill church in Grandville, near Grand Rapids, says Rob Bell will discuss the decision Sunday.

Bell's book "Love Wins" questions the traditional Christian belief that a select number of believers will spend eternity in heaven while everyone else is tormented in hell. He has said he wrote the book because the Christian message that God is love seems to have gotten lost.

Mars Hill has grown in 12 years under his leadership. He has made online videos and written other books that have been popular among younger evangelicals.
