Wednesday Giveaway - Four Views on Hell

Categories Theology

4 views on hellIs hell to be understood literally as a place of eternal smoke and flames? Or are such images simply metaphors for a real but different form of punishment? Is there such a thing as “conditional immortality,” in which God annihilates the souls of the wicked rather than punishing them endlessly? Is there a Purgatory, and if so, how does it fit into the picture?

Talk of hell has taken center stage recently, and many are asking questions about different theological approaches to hell and how they fit the Biblical narrative. It seemed fitting then to feature as today’s giveaway a book which wrestles with exactly those questions.

In Four Views on Hell Walvoord, Crockett, Hayes, and Pinnock explain and critique the literal, metaphorical, purgatorial, and conditional interpretations of hell. 

By laying out the positions and pointing to their strengths and weaknesses, these authors provide a forum for thoughtful and reasonable discussion of a difficult doctrine.

Two copies of Four Views on Hell are up for grabs, and this giveaway will run through Thursday.
