really liked it
Read in January, 2007

Being a missionary and teaching missions and Global Perspectives these past couple of years have taken me into an important and ongoing debate over Hell. I find much of the argument against eternal conscious torment rather sentimental and ill-conceived. But MacDonald (a pseudonym) has offered the evangelical community a studied, thoughtful, and objective challenge to the traditional view of hell and for a version of universalism that is not mere sentimentality but, he argues, the conclusion of exegesis. I'm not promoting the view, mind you. I'm just saying that this is where the debate is. Good luck.

Charles Sr. Endless Torments has just as much potential for sentimentality and to be I'll-convinced as UR. In fact, most who believe in endless torments can neither defend their belief nor argue against UR without mistaking it as Unitarian Universalism.
