Rob Bell’s new book is already cooking up a storm– and it is not out yet.
It seems he is being accused of heresy.
Must read it.
Although I can’t help but feel just a little bit cynical about the fact that all this controversy will likely make the book a publishing phenomenon- which will certainly make his publishers very happy.
Twitter is going mad about it all apparently.
Although controversy as an end in itself is pretty pointless, some times perhaps it has to be confronted because the issues need to be cracked open by people who are prepared to say uncomfortable things. The book deals with an issue that feels absolutely of this time- right now. That is how we understand heaven and hell- the subject of a discussion in my small group as recently as last night.
I see that Rob Bell is at Greenbelt this year- I hope I get to hear him, if he survives the lynch mobs…
