I Am Curious To Know . . .

Have you read Rob Bell's book "Love Wins?"
Do you agree with his conclusion? 
What is your response to Rob Bell, personally? 
Would you happen to have William Barclay's commentaries on your shelf? 
Are you still are a C.S. Lewis fan?

"I am a convinced universalist. I believe that in the end all men will be gathered into the love of God . . ."  (Barclay, William. William Barclay: A Spiritual Autobiography. Eerdmans: Grand Rapids, 1977. Note pages 65-67).

"There are people in other religions who are being led by God's secret influence to concentrate on those parts of their religion which are in agreement with Christianity, and who thus belong to Christ without knowing it . . . . For example a Buddhist of good will may be led to concentrate more and more on the Buddhist teaching about mercy and to leave in the background (though he might still say he believed) the Buddhist teaching on certain points. Many of the good Pagans long before Christ's birth may have been in this position" (Lewis, C.S. Macmillan: New York, 1984. Note pp. 176-177).
