Product Description

Product 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.

A pastor and church planter based in San Francisco, Francis Chan speaks to tens of thousands of people around the world every year. Known for his passionate, biblical style, Chan is on the board of World Impact and is the author of Forgotten God, Erasing Hell, and Crazy Love, which has sold nearly two million copies.

This review is both positive toward the book, and a reaction to the review by Chris. I want to say that, of course this book is affirming for Christians.

Considering this book is a response to a book which denies hell, this book is specifically written to defend the doctrine, and by nature will be affirming. Christians looking for an answer to Rob Bell are looking for a book which will weigh the biblical evidence, which this book does, and it does so in a way that is not "pressing" the evidence into a pre-made mould, but which assumes the doctrine (orthodoxy), and attempts to find compelling reasons to continue to assume its existence. And hopefully, if it's authors have done their jobs (which I truly believe they have) then the book will correctly affirm the doctrine of hell. There is nothing wrong with Christians looking for affirmation of a belief which is orthodox, as long as we weigh the arguments and focus on not being dogmatic when the evidence is not favourable.

As well, though I immediately recognize I have not read Brayshaw's 4 volume work, if the free articles on his website are any indicator of the kind of argumentation one can expect in his books, then they are not worth spending the time or the money on. The fallacious logic and minimal evidence in his article "If Satan is Real Then There are Two Gods" spends most of its time using anecdote, and the remainder drawing wrong conclusions. He attempts to show that because Satan is able to do some of the things God can do, therefore he is God. But humans must all be God's too according to this logic, seeing as we can speak and God can speak, we can think and God can think, we can move and God can move. But these things are not what makes God unique.

In this incredibly easy read, Chan & Sprinkle approach Hell from a Biblical and Pastoral view. They deal with the reality of Hell put forward in Scripture and aren't afraid to say I don't know when they come across an area of ambiguity. This is a great read that is for everyone, and they speak to how this reality should effect believers view of others and their view of God.

I read this book in response to my reading of Love Wins by Rob Bell, which I also did not like. Bell was far more intellectually honest and handled scripture better. In the years since I have come to stop believing in Eternal Conscious Torment. This is due, in large part, to the sloppy thought behind this book. If this is the best defense of ECT they can offer then the doctrine must be on pretty shaky ground.

This is a great book for anyone who has omitted to share the truth about hell with others when sharing the Gospel. My faith and my commitment to be true what Jesus has said was renewed. Its a must for any Christian in this age when we are "afraid to put people off".

If you want to be affirmed in the Christian belief in Hell this is the perfect book for you. That's literally all it does. It starts with the Christian belief of Hell, even though it says it doesn't, and then force fits everything else from the New Testament into that belief.

After reading James R Brayshaw's extensive 4 volume series on the topic of Satan/Hell, which takes the context of Hebrew culture and linguistics seriously, this book (Erasing Hell) feels like a feel-good for people that feel bad about the Christian belief. The belief that real people will spend eternity burning but not completely dying.

The book, just like the religion, requires us to assume many things in order to play along. Like when the writers ask us to 'remember that the Devil is a being created by God'…without pointing us in the right direction in our Bibles to find that particular creation story. I do remember being taught that but I still haven't found it anywhere in my Bible.

If James R Brayshaw's books are a PhD equivalent on this subject, then Erasing Hell is like Kindergarden with a substitute teacher.

One of the best books I have read. Encouraged to keep as a reference why we are here and what role we have to play in the salvation story. Cannot read without being moved for the lost.
