Love Wins: The Shepherd

March 26, 2011

On the 26th of March in 1524 Zwingli published one of his most important, and most enduring books- Liebe Gewinnt: Der Hirt, Love Wins: the Shepherd.  Fortunately, these days the Christian community is blessed with like-minded thinkers such as Rob Bell leading the flock. Zwingli’s volume is a brilliant reminder and a Reformation era precursor to Bell’s recent work concerning what makes a true shepherd and what makes a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Separated at Birth? Two peas in a Pod? Theological Twins?

(Jim West has the ‘original‘ story, but it’s probably not true, and this one is certainly more historically accurate)

    Rob Bong? Sorry Bell..I could not help myself! lol A rare wee piece of satire from me, and I know rather poor. Chalk it up to old age!
