Product Description

Featuring evangelical writers of exceptional insight and sensitivity, Universal Salvation? offers a conversation worth everyone's attention. The volume opens with a rigorous three-part defense of Christian universalism by philosopher Thomas Talbott, who argues that Scripture teaches the ultimate salvation of all people, including those in hell. Gabriel Fackre in his foreword calls Talbott's work "the most thoughtfully wrought argument for universalism to date from within the contemporary evangelical community." The rest of the volume gathers incisive responses to Talbott by Christian scholars from different disciplines, who evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of Talbott's arguments, take his thought in new directions, or explain why they think he is mistaken. Talbott then responds to his critics.

The aim of this volume is not to persuade people that universalism is true but to open up a fairer debate on a controversial subject of continuing importance to theologians and nontheologians alike. By exploring universal salvation from biblical, philosophical, theological, and historical perspectives, this volume helps readers think through the issues more carefully than has been possible with resources previously available.

Publisher's Description

Foreword by Gabriel Fackre

Will God one day save all people through Christ's atoning work? That is the question at the heart of the debate in this volume -- a debate sure to challenge readers, whatever their current perspective.

Featuring evangelical writers of exceptional insight and sensitivity, Universal Salvation? offers a conversation worth everyone's attention. The volume opens with a rigorous three-part defense of Christian universalism by philosopher Thomas Talbott, who argues that Scripture teaches the ultimate salvation of all people, including those in hell. Gabriel Fackre in his foreword calls Talbott's work "the most thoughtfully wrought argument for universalism to date from within the contemporary evangelical community." The rest of the book gathers incisive responses to Talbott by Christian scholars from different disciplines, who evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of Talbott's arguments, take his thought in new directions, or explain why they think he is mistaken. Talbott then responds to his critics.

The aim of this volume is not to persuade people that universalism is true but to open up a fairer debate on a controversial subject of continuing importance to theologians and nontheologians alike. By exploring universal salvation from biblical, philosophical, theological, and historical perspectives, the book helps readers think through the issues more carefully than has been possible with resources previously available.

Editorial Reviews

C. Stephen Evans
"This book sets a high mark both for its quality of argument and for the civility of the arguers, and it is unusual in looking at the question of universal salvation from biblical, theological, and philosophical perspectives. Both those who favor universalism and those, such as myself, who must in the end reject this view will benefit from a careful study of this work."

Murray Rae
"A thorough survey of the main lines of debate within the evangelical tradition and a stimulating and rigorous engagement with the challenge of universalism."

Youthworker Journal
"Fascinating, educating, challenging, and inspiring."

Nigel G. Wright
"It is good to have the subject [of universal salvation] placed firmly and creatively on the agenda."

Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"Universal Salvation? The Current Debate is no simple read, but it is enlightening."

National Review
"Excellent. . . This book offers a profound yet accessible discussion of the ultimate questions facing man."

    The writings of Thomas Talbott should be read by everyone. Christ's act of redemption is more powerful than Adam's act of rebellion.
