Overview

This book seeks to establish whether a Christian position must entail a belief in hell or whether Christians can hold a coherent theory of universal salvation. Richard Swinburne's defence of hellÂdepends on the argument that hell is necessary if humans are to be genuinely free.ÂIt becomes clear that the contemporary discussion of hell and universalismÂcannot be separated from theÂissues of human freedom and God's knowledge,Âand so HallÂcentres the discussion round theÂquestion 'Are we Free to Reject God?' John Hick argues that although we are free to reject GodÂthere willÂeventually be anÂuniversalist outcome. Having examined the contrasting arguments of Hick and Swinburne, Hall builds on Hick's position toÂdevelop an argument for Christian universal salvation which holds in balance our freedom in relation to God and the assurance that all will finally be saved.
