Francis Chan’s book on hell came out a while back called “Erasing Hell“. This follows in the wake of Rob Bell’s book “Love Wins” that some say proves Bell is a universalist. I am not so sure that he is but I can see how people come to that conclusion. Eoes anyone else think it odd that Bell would have a book called Jesus Wants to Save Christians and then follow it up with a book where God might really just save everyone anyway? Also, has anyone noticed the similarities in the covers of Chan’s new book with Bell’s previous book “Jesus Wants to Save Christians”?
I’ve read Erasing Hell & Love Wins. Erasing Hell was absolutely brutal. I like Chan but it felt inauthentic and like he didn’t really believe what he was writing. I think he was still working through the doctrine and should have waited to write the book. I like Bell. I disagree with a few places that he landed but am thankful for his courage to stand up for what he believes in. And to be honest, he is far closer to the Scriptural truth than most Christians when it comes to eternal punishment.
Jackson…I just started a review of Erasing Hell today on the blog. Feel free to chime in since you have read it.
