I’ve not read it. I’m not sure I’m going to bother. Is that bad? I probably should. But there are just better books that I’ve yet to get round to reading. I’m currently reading Tim Keller’s ‘King’s Cross’ and Mark Driscoll’s ‘Death by Love’ and I don’t want to put those to one side. But today ‘Love Wins’ is number 35 on Amazon UK bestseller list. So I may have to repent.
It’s a book in which [apparently] Rob Bell argues that God is love and His desire to share it means that in the end His love wins over our rejection of it, he redefines the concept of hell so that it becomes what we create when we reject God’s love and denies that there is eternal conscious suffering under God’s punishment. You can see why the internet traffic might have increased!
I’ve skim read Kevin DeYoungs’ thorough critique. It’s very good. You can find it here.
I’ve listened to Rob Bell’s interview with Martin Bashir on MSNBC, in which Bashir turns the screw and Bell squirms uncomfortably. You can find that here.
I’ve also listened to Martin Bashir’s 30 minute radio interview with Paul Edwards. You can find that here. It’s interesting and worth a listen.
