Dr. Larry Dixon is Professor of Systematic Theology at Columbia International University Seminary & School of Missions; his 2011 book is one of many critical evangelical responses to young megachurch pastor Rob Bell's book Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived, which challenges the traditional notion of Hell as "eternal conscious torment."

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.

Larry Dixon is a good writer. I find Larry Dixon's theological views more compatible with my own than Rob Bell's (no relation, by the way). But "Love Wins", Rob Bell's spectacularly successful attempt to express his universalist leanings with his contemporary writing style and creative communication skills, just soars above the attempts of his critics to discredit him. I almost feel like saying, "Larry, find another topic. Don't waste your considerable talents on a battle you can't win". Love Wins is so much better written and starkly contrasts its creative approach with the tired deductive style of Dixon's evaluation that I find myself being nudged over toward Bell's camp the more I read the works of his detractors. Larry Dixon, you're a good writer. Maybe next time.

I read "Love Wins" FIRST to see what everyone was talking about. I am glad I had this book to read afterwards. It showed me solid Bible teaching on many subjects I felt should not be comprised.
