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.

    " Loved this book...I liked how Francis Chan did not bash Bell but spoke truth about what God says about Hell in His word. He also challenged others to have a relationship with Christ if they have not...that that was the deciding factor between Heaven and Hell for all people. I am very greatful for men and women who speak God's truth biblically...and don't just accept man's word and what we think is best for ourselves. "

    " A refreshingly honest view. Chan, as usual, turns to Scripture and the Greek and Hebrew text for every single point. He also refuses to back down from even the truths that he himself does not like. "

    " Not an easy read, but worthwhile. The best information I've seen for countering Universalist's warped view of Scripture and specifically the false teachings of Rob Bell. Always a Chan fan - I am not disappointed. "

    " This could have been SUCH A GOOD BOOK if only it got over itself. It started out so promisingly--the voice was easy to read, the historical contexts of the Jewish concepts of hell and the Christian ones later were well stated and interesting, and there is a deep respect for the topic that I think grounds the book in a way that other responses to universalism don't. If Hell is real--even if it isn't--it's best to treat it with care and utmost attention rather than as a purely academic exercise without applicable meaning, Chan and Sprinkle say. I agree with this, even though I'm an academic who spends lots and lots of time on purely academic exercises. The best way they put this is on p. 118: "So often these hell passages become fodder for debate, and people miss the point of the warning. Jesus didn't speak of hell so that we could study, debate, and write books about it. He gave us these passages so that we would live holy lives. Stop slandering one another, and live in peace and brotherly unity. Jesus evidently hates it when we tear into our brothers or sisters with demeaning words, words that fail to honor the people around us as the beautiful image-bearing creatures that they are." WELL SAID. But then it falls apart. The book ends rather abruptly, I thought; there's this buildup of what is said and what isn't said, and then there's a chapter that basically says keep calm and carry on because heaven is awesome, and that's it. What? Then there's the Appendix of Frequently Asked Questions, as if the universalism debate is a navigable website, filled with the things that were left out "to keep this book a reasonable length." If you want to talk about something, put it in the book proper. Don't give me a 10 page appendix of trite answers. And the thing that confused me the most was that after all of this space-saving and economy, there's a full chapter of one of Chan's other books tacked on to the end. Really? Fiction writers who have a next part of the series do that. Nonfiction theology writers should not. If I'm that interested in your writing, I'll look at the four other pages you have referencing your works. I picked up this book for this topic, and now you've taken all this extra space to talk about something else--namely, yourself, no matter how you cloak it. Also, while I'm grateful that this has notes, they're end chapter notes, which are the worst of the three available options (footnotes and end notes after all main text being the others). So boo on that. All in all, I was pretty disappointed with this. There are some great things said here about the authority of God and the understanding of Scripture, but it gets swallowed by the commercialism of the authors. "
