Product Description

Everlasting hell and judgment, a lake of fire and brimstone-these mainstays of evangelical tradition have come under fire once again in recent decades. Would the God of love revealed by Jesus really consign the vast majority of humankind to a destiney of eternal, conscious torment? Is divine mercy bound up by the demands of justice? How can anyone presume to know who is saved from the flames and who is not?

Reacting to presumptions in like manner, others write off the fiery images of final judgment altogether. If there is a God who loves us, then surely all are welcome into the heavenly kingdom, regardless of their beliefs or their practices in this life. Yet, given the sheer volume of threat rhetoric in the Scriptures and the wickedness manifest in human history, the pop-universalism of our day sounds more like denial than hope. Mercy triumphs over judgment; it does not skirt it.

Her Gates Will Never Be Shut endeavors to reconsider what the Bible and the church have actually said about hell and hope, noting a breadth of real possibilities that undermines every presumption. The polyphony of perspectives on hell and hope offered by the prophets, apostles, and Jesus humble our obsessive need to harmonize every text into a neat theological system. But they open the door to the eternal hope found in Revelation 21-22: the city whose gates will never be shut; where the Spirit and bride pe4petually invite the thirsty who are outside the city to "Come drink the waters of life".
