Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mennonite minister Randolph Klassen does battle with the devil in What Does the Bible Say About Hell? Wrestling with the Traditional View. He addresses every reference to hell in the Bible, offering separate chapters on Acts, the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Epistles. He rejects the traditional notion of hell as a place of eternal torment for the wicked, claiming that such as view "fails the test of justice": in other words, a just and loving God would not sanction eternal suffering with no possibility of parole. Klassen's voice is gentle and pastoral as he analyzes reasons why many individuals need a belief in hell to scare them into heaven. (Nov. 30) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Biblically accurate, beautifully written

    Klassen's book was biblically accurate and beautifully written. The author seems very down-to-Earth, covering complex material in a simple and reasonable fasion, providing wonderful insights into the meanings of God's word in this remarkable book. By providing insight into the meanings of the judgment and hell texts, he offers another paradigm of God's grace and love. Recommended to all interested in God's word and in His grace as revealed through Jesus.
