Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has.
Our culture needs us not to reinforce its soft, malleable, and fleeting worldview but to offer a God-revealed, redemptive alternative. Lewis warned against chronological snobbery—the assumption that recent viewpoints are better than ancient ones.
The gospel he affirms is timely precisely because it is timeless. God Wins is built on biblical and historical rock, not cultural sand. Love Wins asks hundreds of questions but offers few biblical answers.
It also includes justice. And not just any God, but the true God. The Father who is both loving and righteous, the Son who is full of both grace and truth, the merciful Spirit who has the word Holy in his very name.
He is all that he is, all the time.
My takeaway—not directly affirmed by Galli but to me an inescapable conclusion—is that the issues underlying both Love Wins and God Wins are, in the end, far bigger than hell. His physical resurrection? His deity? I was not only informed, but moved. But these were some of the chapters: Does Everyone Go to Heaven? Has Hell Changed? Or Have We?
It occasionally appeals to the original languages, e. It does so in order to deal with misleading statements about those terms in Love Wins.
The author explains that he asked his friend Preston Sprinkle to assist him in the research. What should it tell us if the Bible seems to always agree with us? Chan models this approach to biblical interpretation. Will we pridefully believe what we want to, or humbly believe whatever God has told us? Hence, culture and the reader of Scripture become the authority, rather than Scripture itself. Faith becomes merely a collection of fleeting opinions, always subject to revision.
That is something very different from historic, biblically grounded Christian faith. Rather than apologize for God, Chan suggests we should apologize to God for presuming to be wiser and more loving than our Savior. He then takes a careful and considerate look at the major points of Bell's thesis and holds each point up to the truthful light of God's Word.
The results are then left to the reader to decide. The over-arching picture that emerges is one of simplicity. Galli very often is forced to point out that while Bell has not stated anything that of itself is heretical, he has also not given a full scriptural answer to the questions he raises and seeks to answer. In fact, Bell has reduced the message of salvation from a message of the good news that God has displayed His glory by accomplishing what mankind could never accomplish to a message that places God at man's disposal.
By reducing the message of the gospel, Bell reduces the display of God's glory, minimizes the work of the Holy Spirit, and elevates man's role in salvation.
In several short chapters -- I read the book in two sittings -- Galli presents a brief yet thorough synopsis of salvation that is every bit as compelling and easy to understand as many of Bell's essays and lectures. It is not the subject matter that is difficult to grasp, it is Bell's coverage of it that is insufficient.
Galli is as quick to point out where Bell is spot-on correct as he is to highlight errors or oversights.
The book comes with a discussion guide that would prove beneficial to small groups studying the matter together. The appendix on charitable discussion is a great summary of what Galli has done in his book. The book is a great real-life application of those brief paragraphs. The final conclusion, according to Galli, is that the winner is a Who God , not a what love.
It is God who wins. I could not agree more. I commend this book to anyone interested in the subject of salvation, anyone who has already read Bell's Love Wins, as well as others who -- like me -- have not read Bell's book.
Galli does a wonderful job bringing the Bible to bear on a subject that is of vital importance now to all believers. What would you like to know about this product?
