Well, I finished Rob Bell’s Love Wins on an airplane this weekend. First reaction? It’s not bad. My suspicions that the storm this book has generated has a lot more to do with how it was marketed and the frantic and reactionary nature of the world of social media than with the content of the book itself were certainly justified. I may write more about Love Wins in the next little while. Or I may not. We’ll see. My sense is that the internet is getting tired of this whole thing.
At any rate, in lieu of a full-blown review, I thought I would throw up this question from Richard Mouw (via Ben Witherington):
Why don’t folks who criticize Rob Bell for wanting to let too many people in also go after people… who want to keep too many people out? Why are we rougher on salvific generosity than on salvific stinginess?
