This book, as read by Aaron, is like a sermon/lecture that held my attention -- no skimming -- The voice holds the energy and passion of the authors, and gets the message across, leaving no area of indifference or ambivalence.
Other than the Bible, and various text books and commentary's, this is the first book I have read dedicated to the subject of Hell.
Indelible Truth: things God has said about His Plan, and how you can watch rather than feel the heat... or something like that...
Francis Chan is an excellent communicator, and Arron Sprinkle is a scholar of the highest order. What they, as a team, brought to the subject, is as complete a study on the subject as possible, using the sacred texts and historical contexts known to the persons originally addressed by Christ and the prophets.

By regaining focus on God, the Holy Spirit is sharing what God wants to do through me. I have laughed at the joy of realizing this, and cried over the wasted time spent wondering why I wasn't
God wants me to know Him. God who made everything, wants me to know Him. He gave His son, Jesus, to bring salvation by satisfying the Wrath of God earned by our sin; He gave the Holy Spirit to let us know Him personally... the veil no longer exits between man and God. This book will help you put Acts into perspective, and will put acts in your life, that glorify God the Father.
