I never really had much of a desire to read a book by Rob Bell. However, my institution, Seattle Pacific University, is putting on a symposium on the book Love Wins and I have been asked to respond to the ideas in the book from the perspective of his interpretation of Scripture. So, I WILL be reading the book, but I asked the university to buy a copy for me!
Anyway, our session will be in a few weeks. I will post my reflections here when that symposium is over.
I have tried not to read blog posts and reviews so that I can come to the book “untainted,” so I will probably not be up to speed on what other folks think. So, just FYI, my own thoughts may be similar to other Bible profs.
