It is a time of Christian confusion and, therefore, uncertain witness. Is there a biblical doctrine of hell or are Christians free to hold a variety of viewpoints on this issue? If so, does it matter which one? Larry Dixon examines current theories and encourages you to take the Bible's teaching on hell as seriously as Jesus did. If he came to us with the Good News then we don't want people to spend eternity on the other side of the Good News. Three alternative views to the traditional doctrine of hell are examined; universalism, annihilationism and post-mortem conversion. In a thought-provoking final chapter Dixon summarizes how different views affect our interaction with non-Christians and the extent of our freedom to hold different views.
