"Bell has chosen to find his spirituality in a Jesus of his own imagination." (Timothy Tennent, president of Asbury Seminary)and, from an evangelical perspective, this is tantamount to idolatry. What seems to be the deeper concern from such camps is that Bell promotes this idolatry. He's not just an idolater but an evangelist of it that so many people are listening to. Which leads to another interesting development. Some people who were vocal about Bell before are being silent about Bell now. Some, like Tony Jones, wonder if this is because they don't want to draw attention to Bell's book and increase sales like they did last time. There are lots of interesting political maneuvers at play. But Bell's a big boy. He understands that if you enter the public forum you expose yourself to every possible response and reaction out there.
