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.

"Francis and Preston accurately and clearly reflect the biblical teaching on heaven, hell and the eternal destiny of everyone who ever lived. They provide a timely reminder that we don't define God, but he reveals himself to us in the pages of Scripture." - Tremper Longman, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College, Author of Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind
Erasing Hell is an extraordinarily important book. Francis Chan speaks with trembling and compassion. He recognizes this debate is about God, His nature and His authority. At stake is whether or not we will trust Him. Francis lays his heart on the table; I was not only informed, but moved. Its rare that a book mixes straight-from-the-heart talk with diligent citation of Scripture. Erasing Hell is highly readable yet goes deep and detailed exactly when it needs to. Preston Sprinkles research and Francis Chans presentation are a dynamic combination. This remarkable book embraces not what, in pride, we want to believe, but what, in humility, we must believe. My heartfelt thanks to Francis Chan for taking us to Gods Word in a Christlike spirit of grace and truth. And for calling on us not to apologize for God, but to apologize to God for presuming to be wiser and more loving than our Savior. - Randy Alcorn
