Rob Bell... controversy...etc...

So I could write about the failings of my beloved team... but sometimes it's just too soon... and the loss in the carling cup final is one of them

Instead I'll share the video/book release that is causing quite the stir in the christian blogging bubble...

Rob Bell (author of Velvet Elvis, Sex God, etc...) has released this video to promote his new book "Love Wins"

LOVE WINS. from Rob Bell on Vimeo.

And here's the description to go with it...
Fans flock to his Facebook page, his NOOMA videos have been viewed by millions, and his Sunday sermons are attended by 10,000 parishioners—with a downloadable podcast reaching 50,000 more. An electrifying, unconventional pastor whom Time magazine calls “a singular rock star in the church world,” Rob Bell is the most vibrant, central religious leader of the millennial generation. Now, in Love Wins: Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived, Bell addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith—the afterlife—arguing that a loving God would never sentence human souls to eternal suffering. With searing insight, Bell puts hell on trial, and his message is decidedly optimistic—eternal life doesn’t start when we die; it starts right now. And ultimately, Love Wins.

Justin Taylor from the gospelcoalition quickly wrote a response on his blog here

As with many of these things, I'm waiting for the book to see what he's actually talking about and I'm sure it will make interesting reading.
