Description

How could a loving God send people to hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven?

With a humble respect for God's Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They've asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don't want to believe in hell. But as they write, "We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue."

This is not a book about who is saying what. It's a book about what God says. It's not a book about impersonal theological issues. It's a book about people who God loves. It's not a book about arguments, doctrine, or being right. It's a book about the character of God.

Erasing Hell will immerse you in the truth of Scripture as, together with the authors, you find not only the truth but the courage to live it out.

    The book was easy to read, a fast read, and seemed to me to be disingenuous. The arguments Chan makes are debatable and based on debatable passages of Scripture, and debatable snippets of history. Nevertheless, I would encourage people to read the book. The discussion on Hell is worth having. And I think it's important to understand - as much as you can - the different perspectives and ideas. In my opinion, Erasing Hell does a great job of exposing just how unstable, weak, and debatable the mainstream, Calvinistic ideas of Hell are (Chan's position, no less - also Driscoll, Piper and others). And it's done in a fashion that attacks your ability to reason or understand God; ironically, by claiming to have figured Him out. Still, try to see past those weak attacks to fairly evaluate how this position stands in comparison to the many different sides and aspects of the discussion. 1 Corinthians 13:8 - Love never fails...
