Tonight I had the pleasure of giving a lecture called “Rob Bell and the Cultured Despisers: The Liberalism of Love Wins” for Chinese Gospel Church in Chinatown, Toronto. As you can tell by the title, it is a critique of Rob Bell’s recent book Love Wins, where I locate him in the history of theology, particular theological liberalism.
I reference a number of helpful sources in the paper, so I thought I’d link them here for further information if anyone who attended the lecture wanted to check them out.
Carl Trueman: Easy Virtues and Cruel Mistresses (on Martin Luther)
Michael Wittmer: Christ Alone site (first book length critique of Love Wins)
J. Gresham Machen: Christianity & Liberalism (foreward by Trueman and opening chapter)
Francis Chan and Preson Sprinkle: Erasing Hell
