Two Views: Of Hell (Spectrum Series)

$29.99

Paperback
Hell is real and terrible. It is the fate of those who reject God. Evangelicals agree about this unhappy truth. Yet on some questions about hell disagreements arise.

Some evangelicals believe the wicked will experience perpetual, conscious torment after death. Others argue that the wicked will experience a limited period of conscious punishment and then they will cease to exist.

In this book you will find an irenic yet frank debate between two evangelical theologians who present strong scriptural and theological evidence for and against each view. Both make a case that their view is more consistent with Scripture and with the holy and just nature of a loving God.

Robert Peterson defends the traditional view that those who do not have faith in Christ will suffer eternally in hell. Edward Fudge advocates the conditionalist perspective that after a period of suffering, the unfaithful will experience a complete extinguishing, or annihilation, of existence. In addition, each author presents a rebuttal to the viewpoint of the other.

Here is a dialogue that will inform and challenge those on both sides, while impressing on all the need for faithful proclamation of the gospel of deliverance from sin and death.

- Publisher "Hell" is a much-debated topic among evangelicals. Will the condemned experience perpetual, conscious torture; or will theirs be a limited suffering followed by an end to their existence? Theologians Peterson and Fudge debate these traditional/conditionalist perspectives, each making a case that his viewpoint is more consistent with Scripture and God's nature. Includes rebuttals.
