Dr. Darrell Bock, Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Professor of Spiritual Development and Culture, reviewed Rob Bell's Love Wins. The following blog excerpt is from his April 2 post.

The book as a whole is a very mixed bag. Much of what is included has value. What is omitted is the start of where the problems lie. It is a one-sided, lop-sided book. What is said about the gospel is clear in terms of drawing people to Jesus and the significance of his unique work. What is said about judgment and hell is so poor that it ends up leading into a serious distortion of God's grace, justice, and character, not to mention how much of the call of Scripture to our accountability to God in this life becomes moot if what Bell claims is true. Half truth can mean little truth. Unfortunately that is the case for the major point Bell wishes to make about God's character, love, justice, judgment, and hell.
