Southern Baptists Review Rob Bell's New Book

Southern Baptist Theological Seminary reviewed Rob Bell's book Love Wins via panel discussion. I don't think they realize how deep the problems really are or how deep the problems are with his opponents but I was pleasantly surprised by the tone of the discussion. They acknowledged that Bell had some legitimate objections to things taught by some evangelicals. It was clear that every person on the panel had read the book carefully and tried to put the best construction on it. There were no heresy hunters to be found and the whole thing seemed to be done out of genuine pastoral concern.
