Having finished a 105 page in-depth commentary a few weeks ago (available here on the forum, now with a pdf and doc version attached to the first post), I am now presenting a 13 page summary review (attached below in this post.)
It’s far more formal, but also a bit less technical (paradoxically!)
Also, it’s only 13 pages. Which is still 10 pages more than many internet reviewers have bothered to do.
For those visitors and readers unfamiliar with my long-form review notes, while I basically agree with the direction Rob Bell is arguing for, I am VERY critical about some of the moves he makes in his book. Not all of those are covered in this shorter review, but you’ll find plenty there to complain about if you’re looking for that sort of thing.
And plenty to cheer about if you’re looking for that sort of thing.
Which at bottom is the point to my review: opponents and supporters ought to pay more attention to what’s going on there, in sympathy with each other.
(Incidentally, anyone wanting a pdf or doc of the long-form review can now find it attached and reformatted to the first post of the thread linked to above.)
