Erasing Hell: What God Said About Eternity, and the Things We Made Up

Available Platforms

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.

From the Preface

...But this book is actually much more than a book on hell. Itís a book about embracing a God who isnít always easy to understand, and whose ways are far beyond us; a God whose thoughts are much higher than our thoughts; a God who, as the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, has every right to do, as the psalmist says, ďwhatever He pleasesĒ (Ps 115:3 NASB).

God has the right to do WHATEVER He pleases.

If I've learned one thing from studying hell, it's that last line. And whether or not you end up agreeing with everything I say about hell, you must agree with Ps 115:3. Because at the end of the day, our feelings and wants and heartaches and desires are not ultimate -- only God is ultimate. God tells us plainly that His ways and thoughts are infinitely higher than ours (Isa 55:9). Expect then, that Scripture will say things that don't agree with your natural way of thinking.
