Suebdoo5 Stars Out Of 5Erasing HellJune 2, 2021SuebdooRead it, and weep ~ literally
mark5 Stars Out Of 5Challenging & ImportantMarch 21, 2021markQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is so important at a time where * I cant believe in a God who would...* seems to be driving most of the theology of the American church.
It takes a thorough look at the concept of hell, with the priority always humbly being to ask what God Himself has to say about it. It is informative, challenging, and an incredibly valuable study not just on hell, but also how we should approach every topic of the faith.
David SanfordPortland, OregonAge: 55-65Gender: Male3 Stars Out Of 5Two major category errors have caused untold grief for manyNovember 7, 2016David SanfordPortland, OregonAge: 55-65Gender: MaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Overall, a helpful book. A lot of work went into it. I found echoes of my own key writing and teaching points. Yet it breaks my heart that, by making two major category errors in this book, Francis Chan has brought untold needless grief to many.
First, Francis Chan tells a heartbreaking story based on his 100% certainty that his mother went to hell. I believe we should not presume to say with certainty that a specific individual went to hell. Only God knows that for sure. Therefore, I believe Francis Chan is making a serious category error. Instead, we should pray that God may reveal to us whether or not they turned to Him in their final minutes, hours, days (knowing that in this life we very well may not know, though God has answered that prayer with certainty a week after the death of a patriarch in my wife's family).
The second major disappointment with this book? Francis Chan says that a person who dies without hearing about Jesus Christ goes to hell. I believe that's an even more serious category error. There are degrees of divine revelation. Even Scripture teaches that. Those degrees of revelation bear directly on the question of who does and doesnt go to heavenand who does and doesnt go to hell. A family member with Downs Syndrome doesn't know the difference between an Elvis impersonator and the real Elvis who died decades ago. He also doesn't know who the real Jesus is, let alone know the Gospel, let alone believe, let alone follow Jesus Christ. So, this family member is going to hell? No, of course not. The Judge of all the earth will do what is right. Whether genetically or geographically, many can't opt into faith in Jesus Christ. That doesn't mean they're all going to hell anymore than my first grandchild who died twelve years ago.
Again, it breaks my heart that, by making these two major category errors, Francis Chan has caused untold needless grief to countless thousands of readers.

EmmettHolland, MIAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A conversation that needs to be had.August 30, 2014EmmettHolland, MIAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While no one likes the thought of loved ones going to Hell, this is a conversation that needs to happen, and be taken more seriously. This book provides the information and tools needed to have this conversation in a way that helps to see the importance of the material, without the Hellfire and brimestone type teaching that has scared so many from the church. Most importantly, this book looks at the eternal hope that can be found even in such a difficult subject. Very well thought out and written. A great tool, which I will be sure to use in the future.
