I got an e-mail from a long time friend this afternoon asking me for my thoughts about Love Wins by Rob Bell. For those of us who follow our favorite bibliophiles and book reviewers around the blogosphere, it may seem like this discussion is already past. However, we should keep in mind that many of our friends and family who are not quite as obsessive about books may be encountering Bell’s new book just now. I explained to my friend that while I have not read Rob Bell’s new book, a lot of the book reviewers I follow and respect have expressed extreme concern and caution over the direction Rob takes in the book. I suggested he check out the following reviews:
Some of you may be wondering if I will actually read Love Wins. While, I certainly won’t be buying a copy, I’d be happy to give it a whirl if somebody wants to lend or gift me a copy. Like many of you, I tend to read a lot of authors I agree with. Every now and then I find it’s a good idea to stretch my mind and work through a book I probably won’t agree with.
