This is worth sharing, considering all of the hoopla about Rob Bell’s book Love Wins:
Thanks to Scot McKnight for sharing this.
I am surprised by his apparent inability to communicate clearly. I had assumed that’s what made his videos so popular (though I’ve never seen them).
Mr. Bell’s confession here may be orthodox-legit, but it seems to me that if clarity is a virtue, then the confusion surrounding his book is a huge problem in communicating the Gospel. If Rob is orthodox and a good communicator (and he may be both), then the troubling ambiguities of his book for so many suggest a serious failure on his part. Or, as some very sharp commentators and interviewers have proposed, perhaps Mr. Bell is fuzzy on purpose in order, as one interviewer charged him point-blank, to make “the Gospel more palatable”?
