    How could a loving God send people to Hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in Hell. But, as they write, “We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.” This is not a book about who is saying what. It’s a book about what God says.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Erasing Hell to be better than the print version?

    I am auditory, and find it more beneficial to listen, like when in Church. 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.


    What other book might you compare Erasing Hell to and why?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Indelible Truth: things God has said about His Plan, and how you can watch rather than feel the heat... or something like that...


    Any additional comments?

    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. The result is a commentary that stands critical scrutiny of scholars and reaches the heart of the believer.

    A follow up to the profound message of Crazy Love, Pastor Francis Chan offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit's direction in our lives. "In the name of the Father, the Son, and ... the Holy Spirit." We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is an excellent companion to the book of Acts, which starts with Christ telling his followers to gather together, to wait, and then receive


    What does Francis Chan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Some people are great writers, some are great speakers, and some people do not read out loud what they write. Some things will always be labor intensive to read, even things that hold our interest. Those things that represent a passion that is beyond verbal expression can lose that passion in print. Francis Chan covers the emotional spectrum in this book. It is more of a 3-D narrative - not with pictures and such, but with reason, feeling and passion. I might get the paper version to mark up and take notes in, but the written words will not hold the same energy and passion the spoken word brings to this very important subject.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    God desperately wants to have a relationship with me. And you. This book made me look at the purpose behind my prayer time. God knows what I want, fear, hope for. 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


    Any additional comments?

    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.
