Not necessarily because of his alleged heresy. Not because I hate his “Nooma” videos. But because he wrote a book. Not the one about Elvis or Sex. The one about love. That’s right. Rob Bell’s book “Love Wins” has made me mad.
Not because of the content. Not because of the really lame cover design. Simply because now, I have to read it. So many people are talking about it and asking if what stated in the book is right, wrong, evil, up for interpretation, or whatever. And my current answer is, I don’t know.
Like a majority of the people who are ready to burn him at the stake or even prematurely jump to his defense, I haven’t read the book. I don’t know what it actually says. I am unable to speak on something I have yet to see for myself. But now I guess I’ll have to.
The jury may still be out on whether or not he’s a heretic but it is decidedly obvious that Rob Bell is a marketing genius.
You beat me this time Rob Bell, but next time you won’t be so lucky.
