Publisher's Summary

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. It’s not a book about impersonal theological issues. It’s a book about people God loves. It’s not a book about arguments, doctrine, or being right. It’s a book about the character of God. Erasing Hell will immerse you in the truth of Scripture as, together with the authors, you find not only the truth but the courage to live it out.

    Story
    "Erasing Hell"
    What disappointed you about Erasing Hell?

    The tone in which the author writes. It seems more like he's writing a diary or a journal entry rather a research based study on hell. He also had this same writing style in his other books as well. I thought it would have been different since the book was coauthored.


    What could Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    the author could have approached the topic more systematically. Here are the popular beliefs about hell- agree, disagree, here's why. I think he goes off topic in chapter five when he address "things that don't make sense to me but I have to accept it" rhetoric.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator seemed bored or uninterested.


    What character would you cut from Erasing Hell?

    The book would be much shorter. I would cut out all of Chan's opinions and just state teh findings from the research. I also would remove the American church bashing that seems to be a trend.

    "Not for the faint of heart"
    If you could sum up Erasing Hell in three words, what would they be?

    I liked it when Francis Chan gave Biblical evidence for his perspectives.


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

    "A perspective on the consequence of sin"
    Where does Erasing Hell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    An excellent treatment of the concept of Hell. As much as many today would like to eliminate the negative side of the Word of God, Francis Chan helps the reader maintain a proper perspective.

    Story
    "A intellectual and spiritual doctrine of hell"
    What did you love best about Erasing Hell?

    Francis Chan does what few authors are capable of doing: responding to a heresy without overcompensating to the opposite extreme. Chan rightly points out the theological vacuum that under girds Rob Bell's intellectual exercise, "Love Wins", but refuses to go the extreme of being a hell celebrator or fire and brimstone preacher. He insists on a genuinely Biblical conclusion that ought to drive us to love our neighbor more completely, rather than seek to scare them into an apparent conversion. He puts firm intellectual bounds on what the reality of hell might be based on scripture (the main thing lacking from Bell's approach) and puts a strong focus on God's incomprehensible mercy without skipping over the inescapable reality of hell.


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

    This is similar to "Love Wins" in what it seeks to cover, but addresses the topic of hell in a way that is more scripturally honest, intellectually rigorous and ultimately spiritually challenging - asking the reader to throw himself into the merciful hands of God rather than trying to mold God's nature to fit a form of mercy we can comprehend.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the entire second half of the book. I was prepared for a purely intellectual rebuttal to Rob Bell, and was reading through with my expected nodding along with points I agreed with wholeheartedly. Then the author took a turn demanding of the reader to self-evaluate how these known truths were impacting daily living. I was genuinely challenged not by verbose wording or intellectual prowess but by the simple word of God in context to evaluate how I was loving my neighbor and what I was doing in response to the reality of heaven and hell.


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

    I was extremely convicted by the second half of the book. I read it wanting an intellectual exercise and affirmation, but I got that and a spiritual challenge to live more lovingly.

    Story
    "If you are not convicted......"
    What made the experience of listening to Erasing Hell the most enjoyable?

    All the passages that gave the truth about what the Bible says about hell.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jesus & God


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

    At first i was worried, but then he seemed to get more comfortable. Seemed convicted.


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

    Believe it or not


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fantastic book that I would highly recommend to anyone. If you call yourself a christian this is definitely a punch in your gut. If it doesn't affect you then I would suggest hitting your knees soon.

    "H E doublehockeysticks"

    I enjoyed the scholarly approach that was taken with this book and yet it was down to earth enough for the average folk to enjoy (me). Lots of stuff for thought here.

    Story
    "This is a very important book!"
    Would you listen to Erasing Hell again? Why?

    Yes, It gave an honest, complete analysis of what the Bible says about the subject of hell, not from a horror story, entertainment value perspective but one that came from a need to uncover the truth of the reality of Hell, and the dire need for christian acknowledgement of it's existence and how that should continue to grow our hearts for people who haven't confessed with their mouths, "Jesus is Lord," and believed in their heart that God raised him from the dead.

    Francis Chan gives a full, fair, biblical account, with the desire to see people saved from hell through the Love and Life of Christ rather than the fear of hell. While lighting a fire under the butts of the christian reader!

    Thank you for this work!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Honesty
    Adherance to Scripture
    The caring motive


    Have you listened to any of Preston Sprinkle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    wow


    Any additional comments?

    get it! listen to it! read the bible! think about it! respond to it!
