Pay Much Closer Attention

Why all the chatter about Love Wins?

Why all the chatter about Love Wins? When Rob Bell’s videos promoting his new book hit the internet a couple of weeks ago there was a huge reaction from the evangelical community and for good reason. I carefully read Love Wins last week and simply stated, Rob Bell’s gospel is not the Gospel of the Bible. His work sadly misses the mark of Gospel clarity and, I believe, falls far short of convincing a skeptic that he needs Christ. But maybe that wasn’t Bell’s purpose.

If you want to get a better grasp of what’s going on with this book and why all the ruckus I have a couple of interviews to share with you and a few reviews for you to read.

Why take the time to watch and listen to the interviews and read the reviews you ask? While it’s true that there are a lot of books littered with bad theology floating around, you should be informed about this particular book. Because of the level of attention it’s gained you may have a friend reading it and believing it soon. You should be prepared to share the truth with them.

Here’s the first stop for you. It’s the interview of Rob Bell by Martin Bashir on MSNBC. The interview is a pretty clear presentation of the problems with Bell’s theology in Love Wins.

After watching that interview you’ll want to listen to this interview of Martin Bashir on The Paul Edwards Program

And the following are likely the most important reviews to help round out your understanding of the issues at hand:
