Whatever Happened to Hell? by John Blanchard

Print

Of all the books that I have read on the subject of hell, this one is easily the most readable. It is filled with quotes, anecdotes, and the like, which lends great interest; yet the reader is not shortchanged in the process. That is because Blanchard does not sidestep the hard questions and big issues wrapped around Hell. The author defends a conservative, biblical position against popular theories of universalism and annihilationism. He does however take a metaphorical view of the fire of Hell (pages 160-166), preferring to see Hell’s fires as the wrath and judgment of God. Overall, Whatever Happened to Hell? is an excellent contribution to the study of this important and serious issue.
