Can't Jesus' love overcome all who resist him, even the most unrepentant of sinners? In light of difficult questions like these---and in part as a response to the controversy stirred up by Rob Bell's Love Wins---this book affirms with clarity and even-handedness the historic Christian doctrine regarding the final destiny of the unsaved. Together, the contributors explore the biblical and theological reasons for continuing to believe in hell, revealing along the way some of the consequences for the church when it loses sight of this doctrine.
Is Hell for Real or Does Everyone Go to Heaven? answers some of today's toughest questions with deep biblical insights and an irenic tone. This book is ideal for group studies on the topic or for individuals looking for a quick way to better understand the discussion.

The sections in this book include a look at how perspectives of Hell have changed from Jesus' time, as well as views of what Jesus said and the Bible's depiction of Hell. The big question of, "Does everyone go to heaven?" is also answered. Each topic is covered extensively and in terms readers don't need a Ph.D. to understand. All of the authors do an excellent job of teaching the concepts of damnation, eternity, and judgment. They also have biblical references to support their arguments. The authors take their time and explain each concept in a thoughtful and provoking manner.
Each section has a lesson to take away that can be applied to everyone's faith walk. The appendix includes advice from Timothy Keller on how to teach or preach about Hell in today's culture. Today's culture tends to think that God is too loving to send people to Hell, even if they do not believe in God. Keller says, "We must explain how a God without wrath is a God without love" (p. 79). God is not only a loving father, but a righteous judge. Romans 3:5-6 says, "But if our unrighteousness brings out God's righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.) Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world?" (NIV). God has every right to judge us; He created us. With the blackness of sin, God shines all the brighter.
Overall, this book is a great tool for teaching, provoking, and informing people about the realities of Hell. This book could be used for devotional readings, small group meetings, Bible studies, or as a preaching tool. The ideas in this book are helpful and convicting. Hell is real, and this book does everything possible to prove it. I would recommend this book to anyone who has any doubts about Hell or is simply curious. This book is helpful, eye opening, and insightful. It will make the reader reevaluate his views on salvation, condemnation, and eternity. Kailey Traylor, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
Tiny5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent BookNovember 14, 2014TinyQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This is a small edited book that thoroughly explains the theology behind belief in Hell versus Universalism and explains the reasons why some Christians believe in Annihilation versus Eternal suffering. Good Scripture references.
alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5December 30, 2013alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 4It's a real shame that books like this have to be written, however as far as books like this go, this one is a decent one. With the subject of hell being "politically incorrect" in today's society, this book brings into clarity just what hell is and what it is not. It show approximately when the idea of hell began to decline in mainstream theology and it also makes very good arguments as to why annihilation and universalism do not work.
The best chapter in my opinion was the one that they show what Jesus said about hell and what exactly hell is and what it isn't. After all he did spend a lot of time teaching about this subject. I also enjoyed the chapter that Timothy Keller wrote on preaching/witnessing about hell. I found that there were several practical tips that I might be able to use.
The down side, the book lost me in several places because of a variety of reasons, but I was usually able to pick up the general meaning. The other item is that the book is only 83 pages of actual text.
