Publisher's Description

In a time of Christian confusion and evangelical erosion, Jesus' teaching about the destiny of the wicked needs to be emphasized. Is there a biblical doctrine of hell or are Christians free to hold a variety of viewpoints on this issue?

In this book Larry Dixon examines many of the current theories on hell and encourages the reader to take the Bible's teaching on Hell as seriously as Jesus Christ did in order to tell people the Good News that we know so that they won't spend eternity on The Other Side of the Good News.

Dixon looks at three alternative views to the traditional doctrine of hell, universalism, annihilationism and post-mortem conversion. In the last chapter he asks "Does it make any difference what view Christians hold about the Other Side?" and "Can there be alternative positions within the church?"

Author Bio

Larry Dixon is Professor of Systematic Theology and Church History at Columbia International University, South Carolina.

Editorial Reviews

A thoughtful, provocative, and fair-minded treatment of a controversial theme in Christian doctrine.
'Larry Dixon has addressed a topic which is of great current importance . . . This is a book which every serious student of the Bible and theology must read'.
'Larry Dixon is refreshing! His courage in dealing with the "hard truth" of the much ignored doctrine of hell is to be commended - a "must read" for every believer.'
'In a climate where universalism is very fashionable in churches and seminaries, Dr. Dixon stands forthrightly in support of the traditional orthodox doctrine of endless conscious punishment.'
'In a climate where universalism is very fashionable in churches and seminaries, Dr. Dixon stands forthrightly in support of the traditional orthodox doctrine of endless conscious punishment.'
'Respectfully interacts with opponents and writes in a manner that is atonce attractive, passionate accessible to ordinary believers.'

    I loved having Dr. Dixon as a professor because he makes theology and doctrine meaningful and fun. His books reflect his teaching style, taking big concepts and making them practical to your personal life. This book in particular does a fantastic job dealing with the (unpopular) reality of hell. It's a great for seminary students and laypeople alike.

    This is an excellent book. Very well constructed. The author presents us the case against universalism, annihilationism and postmortem conversion. This book is a must for everyone who want to follow the teaching of Jesus on hell, with the cloud of witness from church history like Tertulian, Augustin, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Whitefield, Wesley, Schaeffer, CS Lewis, etc...If your not convinced about eternal punishment, please read this book. If you need help to defend eternal punishment, read this book, you will find plenty.
