Last week I wrote a post about the holiness and love of God because I knew the pull that Rob Bell has and I knew more or less what the thesis of his new and very popular book was. That post was not written as a review but as a theological critique to the picture of God the book paints. I decided, however, that it is unfair to do so without reading the book. So I bought it and read it. I have decided to write the review in 2 parts and to make those parts 2 posts. I don't want anyone to read the first one and take it too seriously. First there will be a snarky review because the style of the book annoyed me and it was fun to write.
Second, there will be a serious review of the book. Read whichever one you prefer.
