In a time of Christian confusion and evangelical erosion, Jesus' teaching about the destiny of the wicked needs to be emphasized. Is there a biblical doctrine of hell or are Christians free to hold a variety of viewpoints on this issue? In this book Larry Dixon examines many of the current theories on hell and encourages the reader to take the Bible's teaching on Hell as seriously as Jesus Christ did in order to tell people the Good News that we know so that they won't spend eternity on The Other Side of the Good News. Dixon looks at three alternative views to the traditional doctrine of hell, universalism, annihilationism and post-mortem conversion. In the last chapter he asks "Does it make any difference what view Christians hold about the Other Side?" and "Can there be alternative positions within the church?"

Larry also examines how these ideas affect our interaction with non-Christians and the extent of our freedom to hold different views.

He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today.
