Erasing Hell by Francis Chan is Now Available for Pre-Order

Pre-orders are now open at amazon for Francis Chan’s new book Erasing Hell: What God Says About Eternity and the Things We Made Up. I guess I am a little surprised by the subtitle as some are viewing this book as some sort of response to Rob Bell. I can only guess that what he is referencing are things like Milton’s Paradise Lost, Greek Philosophy and other bits and pieces of literature, culture and philosophy that have often been as influential as scripture itself in shaping how the Western world has traditionally viewed hell.

I am looking forward to reading this book but, if you are really interested in this conversation on hell and what scripture has to say about it, I would encourage you to read a book “The Four Views on Hell” edited by William Crockett. I will post a review on that book in just a moment.
