Here are a couple of things related to the release of Rob Bell's controversial new book Love Wins which might be of interest.
Recently, the White Horse Inn hosts interviewed Kevin DeYoung, who has just written a lengthy review of Bell's new book. The White Horse Inn is making the audio of that interview available as a free bonus track. You can find it here. White Horse Inn Bonus Track
Mike Horton has also weighed in on Bell's book. Here's the link: Horton's Take on Rob Bell
Bell's book is not out yet--Kevin DeYoung did read key sections of it to us during our interview with him. As many have already noted, Bell's book (with its reformulation of Hell and eternal punishment) is a faux evangelical-hipster version of German liberalism (Ritschl and Harnack come to mind), or even the American liberal preacher, Harry Emerson Fosdick.
Although there is not much new here--"warmed over liberalism" as Horton aptly puts it--sadly, Bell's book will sell quite well, generate much media interest, stir-up needless controversy, and do nothing but give those who are embarassed by a holy God with wrath against sin, a lame excuse to reject the biblical and orthodox Christian doctrine of eternal punishment.
