Dixon states in his Introduction that his intent is not to "fight Bell," but to evaluate the doctrine that he is presenting, and "to respond to the charge that we Evengelicals have hijacked the Jesus story." (Pg. 2)
He strongly rejects Bell's suggestion of the possibility of an after-death repentance, arguing that there is "not a shred of evidence" that sinners may repent after death (Pg. 12).
More controversially, he charges Bell's questioning of whether God's greatness is "great most of the time, but in... the fate of billions of people, not totally great" as being "if not blasphemy, then I am hard-pressed to define the term." (Pg. 15)
There are other much more detailed critiques of Bell's book (e.g., God Wins: Heaven, Hell, and Why the Good News Is Better than Love Wins, and Christ Alone: An Evangelical Response to Rob Bell's "Love Wins"), but this book is useful for those wanting a briefer treatment.
