:

Recent years have seen much controversy regarding hell: Do we go to heaven or hell when we die? Or do we cease to exist? Are believers and unbelievers ultimately saved in the end?

This second edition of Four Views on Hell, featuring all new contributors, highlights why the church still needs to wrestle with the doctrine of hell. In the familiar counterpoints format, four leading scholars introduce us to the current views on eternal judgment, with particular attention being given to the new voices that have entered the debate.

Contributors and views include:

  • Denny Burk: Eternal Conscious Torment
  • John Stackhouse: Annihilationism (Conditional Immortality)
  • Robin Parry: Universalism (Ultimate Reconciliation)
  • Jerry Walls: Purgatory

General editor Preston Sprinkle concludes the discussion by evaluating each view, noting significant points of exchange between the essayists. The interactive nature of the volume allows the reader to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of each view and come to an informed conclusion.

Great overview
4 stars By Tanwin, Aug 13 2016
I normally don't read "Counterpoints" books because with that limited amount of space I find it inadequate to discuss four views of anything. But I needed an accessible book on annihilationism and I'm glad I did. 

In this book, the 4 major views on hell are compared and debated: (1) Eternal Concious Torment (the orthodox view) (2) Terminal punishment (Annihilationism) (3) Universalism and (4) Purgatory.

Some views are presented better than the rest but this book gives you a great high-level argument for each view. So although you might not shift to other views, at least it gives you a good understanding on where each view comes from.

As for my own journey, this book gives a solid foundation on annihilationism. This book really triggers my excitement to learn more on the subject.
