In Fairness To Rob

It doesn’t answer all of his critics…don’t think that ever happens for anybody, let alone Rob Bell…but apparently he stood up at his church recently and let this fly.

Not sure if this really changes any of the discussions…maybe it does. I still think he is one of the most provocative and interesting teachers of my generation.

  1. Love it. I haven’t read Love Wins yet, but I have read a few of his other books and listened to lots of his sermons and like the way that he challenges me and opens the door for great discussion.

  2. I haven’t read it yet either so I can’t comment directly (hesitant to give him my $$ right now so waiting to borrow it).

    And I posted my question before listening to the video…my question wasn’t a jab, was just curious if you had read it yet and had thoughts about it. ;o)

  3. I am reading the book right now. I’ve just started the chapter on hell. Here are my brief thoughts on the book thus far:

    I don’t actually have the book in front of me at this moment but I can assure that the book – what I’ve read and I’m halfway through chapter 3 – is a dangerous book. He paints a misrepresentation of Jesus. Mishandles the story of the rich man in hell who asks Lazarus to get him a drop of water. Mishandles scripture from the Old Testament. He goes after the traditional teachings of the description of heaven as wrong yet takes the time to tell the reader what heaven will be like.

    What he says in this audio link is polar opposite to what is written in Love Wins.
