I am a big fan of Rob Bell. I appreciate his ability to communicate in effective and unique ways and I find his theology to be challenging and inspiring. I was first introduced to his Nooma series while serving in my student appointment in early 2004. I have attended all three of his live tours/events.
His newest book is titled, “Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived.” The following promo video has been stirring up quite the buzz:
The book was originally set to be released late this month, but with the recent controversy stirring the release date was pushed up to tomorrow. I found this article to be a relatively well reasoned summary of the controversy, but you can also google “Rob Bell Love Wins” to read plenty more about it.
Rob spoke tonight to address some of the controversy surrounding his new book. It was streamed live, but I wasn’t able to catch it. However, it looks like you can watch it here. I look forward to watching what he had to say and to reading the book.
How about you?
