More Reactions to Rob Bell & Love Wins
In my opinion, the best ongoing review of Rob Bell's Love Wins is by Scot McKnight, a professor at North Park University. He's a Christian from an Anabaptist tradition, which gives him a different perspective on the theology and hermeneutics (interpretation) revealed in Love Wins. You can check out his reviews at his blog Jesus Creed, the posts are called: Exploring Love Wins.
Here's a long and detailed post by Kevin DeYoung, a Reformed-theology minister from Lansing, Michigan. It's a 20 page rejection of the theology and hermeneutics of Love Wins, calling Rob Bell's teachings dangerous. He blogs regularly at TheGospelCoalition.org, his post is called: God is Still Holy and What You Learned in Sunday School is Still True. You may want to check out more of what Kevin DeYoung writes.
I really liked this review of Love Wins from Eugene Peterson, it's a thoughtful interview.
