Farewell, Rob Bell – CIU Professor Answers “Love Wins”

July 18, 2011

Columbia International University Professor Dr. Larry Dixon has an answer to Pastor Rob Bell’s controversial book, “Love Wins.”  It’s “Jesus Redeems!”  

“Love Wins” has caused a stir in the evangelical community.  Its author is The Rev. Rob Bell, the founding pastor of Mars Hill, a rapidly growing mega-church located in Grandville, Mich. near Grand Rapids.  Bell addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith — the afterlife — arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever?      

Dixon’s answer to Bell is flushed out in his new book, “Farewell, Rob Bell – A Biblical Response to Love Wins.”  Dixon shows that Bell is an inconsistent Universalist, that his arguments are neither new nor original, and that the message "Jesus Redeems!" is a far better than "Love Wins."

Dixon was interviewed about his book for the Web site Apprising Ministries.  Read the interview at:
