Reviews of Love Wins

If you are not familiar with the controversy about Rob Bell's Love Wins and the criticism it has received from the likes of John Piper, Justin Taylor, and Kevin DeYoung, let me enlighten you a bit. Love Wins first created a stir with this video by Rob Bell promoting his new book.  It was then critiqued (or blasted depending on who listen to) by aforementioned people. They warned against the universalist teachings in Rob Bell's book. They were then critiqued/blasted by various members of Rob Bell's following.

I've read a few reviews on the actual book, and I'm here to tell you it ain't pretty.  Rather than repeat what others have said I will direct you to some good reviews on this book:

A review by Kevin DeYoung

God Is Still Holy and What You Learned in Sunday School Is Still True: A Review of “Love Wins”

Tim Spivey of writes his review in 3 parts. I really liked this. It makes it easier to read 3 shorter posts than one long post.
Another reason why I like Tim Spivey's review is because he actually liked Rob Bell's previous books, but he is bold enough to speak out against the message in Love Wins.

God Wins - A Review of Rob Bell's Love Wins, Part 1

God Wins - A Review of Rob Bell's Love Wins, Part 2 - The Good

Then finally purely for laughs My Review of Love Wins by Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz. It won't be what you are expecting.
