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.

I have been considering Evangelical universalism, and this book helped me see that although it would be nice to believe that everyone ends up in heaven, there are too many logical problems with that view. It's based on a sentimentality that seeks to fit God into our mold. This book, on the other hand, helps me wrestle to let God be God, recognize that His thoughts are infinitely higher than mine, and what seems like divine unfairness, is really God being His unfathomable self.
Like most people I have believed in Hell since becoming a Christian, but because of the severity of the topic I honestly never gave it much thought. Well God got my attention, and directed my heart to search his word. I came across this book and read the whole thing in nearly a day. I couldn't put it down because it was spiritually challenging me to humble myself before God. I truly recommend that everyone read this book. Especially Christians. Hell is not some doctrine but the destiny of people we know and love and pass everyday. Read this book and be changed!
