Will there be more people spending eternity in heaven or hell? Responding to Love Wins and the conversation it generated, Richardson suggests that God's use of general revelation has brought many more people than traditionally believed to a place where they're ready to respond to the special revelation of the gospel---and salvation. 224 pages, softcover from Baker.
Who Will Be Saved? Who Will Be Lost?
The past few years have seen the release of several high-profile books, including Love Wins (Rob Bell) and God Wins (Mark Galli), that attempt to clarify what the Bible teaches about the ultimate destiny of individuals after this life. Don Richardson believes the arguments posed by these authors do not account for all the biblical evidence. In Heaven Wins, the bestselling author of Peace Child and Eternity in Their Hearts offers a faith-enhancing, scripturally grounded perspective that changes everything. Are a majority of people destined for hell, as many Christians assume, or will heaven harvest the greater part of mankind? Could it be that the Good News is even better and more expansive than we have dared to hope? The answer may surprise you!
