Item description for The Nature of Hell: A Report by the Evangelical Alliance Commission on Unity and Truth Among Evangelicals (Acute) by Evangelical Alliance Com & David Hilborn...

Overview
Evangelicals have traditionally held that unbelievers will be condemned without exception to eternal conscious punishment. However, increasing numbers of evangelical thinkers are declaring sympathy for conditional immortality-a position which emphasizes that God's final punishment for sin is death rather than everlasting torment, and that God's promise of a re-created universe cannot be squared with the classical understanding of hell. This is a form of the more general doctrine of annihilationism, which sees hell as a realm of destruction rather than endless retribution. For some, this shift represents a dangerous dilution of evangelical faith. For others it offers a muchneeded corrective to a harsh misunderstanding of God's purposes. These and related issues are tackled in this report that aims to be biblical and pastoral and to be accessible to interested lay people as well as to theological specialists.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Nature of Hell?

Everything you've wanted to know about Hell . . .  Jan 28, 2003
. . . but were afraid to ask! This book is an excellent, succinct survey on the spectrum of views on the nature of hell within the Christian community. It gives a fair and objective analysis of the various positions, focusing on the traditional view and the "conditional" view (i.e, the idea that souls in hell are eventually destroyed, not tormented forever), and offers Biblically-based critiques of each position. The book addresses questions such as "What do the Old Testament and New Testaments really say about hell?" "How can a loving God allow people to suffer in hell?" "Is hell really eternal?" Although it is a tad academically-oriented (wonderfully footnoted for those who want to read more), it is still quite accessible to the aveage lay reader. This is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered what the Bible really teaches about hell.
