Rob Bell Has Found the Stumbling Blocks
Bromleigh McCleneghan, Christian Century
Rob Bell's new book, Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived, due out at the end of the month, is being promoted as "putting Hell on trial" and questioning the notion that a loving God could commit millions and billions of people to eternal torment. When the press release and accompanying video were released last week, the Christian blogosphere exploded, with conservative Christians of various stripes critiquing Bell and calling him all sorts of names, none more damning than "universalist."
