Francis Chan and (my buddy) Preston Sprinkle have a book coming out soon called Erasing Hell: What God Said About Eternity and the Things We Made Up (published by David Cook). Francis is a well-known pastor/speaker and Preston teaches at Eternity Bible College and he did his Ph.D at Aberdeen University. I can guarantee you that if Preston is involved, then the biblical exegesis will be way above Bell’s exegesis which is to say the least rather dire. Here’s the blurb:In this groundbreaking new book, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle take on the topic of hell and our eternal destiny, with a sense of humility and a deep respect for the inspired Word of God. They will address questions such as “Will everyone be saved?” and “Does God Get What He Wants in the End?” as well as reviewing in depth, everything Jesus said about Hell.
However, the authors warn that we have to guard ourselves against “a heartlessness” when we talk about this theology and this doctrine, because ultimately this about people. Chan and Sprinkle lay all the evidence on the table and present all the facts from Scripture, so that people can decide what to believe for themselves.
There is also a you.tube promo clip that Chan has as well.
