I am appalled by the number of people who are so quick to pass judgement on Rob Bell without having even read his book. From what I have seen in his life (yes, I know him personally), his teachings, and his books, I have no reason to believe he is a “Universalist”. For anyone who is unfamiliar with his style, he is known for stirring the pot and often asking difficult and uncomfortable questions. Just because the question may appear to have an implied answer, doesn’t mean you don’t wait for the answer to be given! Let’s wait and see what he has to say before we start throwing stones!
