Overview

Using Socratic dialogue to argue the evidence, Fatal Choice makes its case for an orthodox view of hell. But more than that, the narrator finds himself on an actual tour of hell with none other than Hieronymus Bosch, the master of paintings on hell, as his mentor.

""Fatal Choice is no ordinary myth. It combines art history, philosophical dialogue worthy of the Greeks, rigorous orthodox theology, and faithful biblical hermeneutics. All of these on a most objectionable topic--at least to modern sensibilities--hell. John Timmerman pulls this off with all the panache of C. S. Lewis. Like Elwin Ransom at the conclusion of Out of the Silent Planet, you may well question, 'Was this story true?' It's worth a thought!""
--W. Andrew Hoffecker, Professor of Church History Emeritus, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
