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.

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.
I was pretty floored by the fantastic rebuttal to "Love Wins", compassionate honesty, and exegetical research. Very powerful stuff, while still remaining very personal and un-academic. We can't afford to get this wrong.
I'm just finishing this book up. I've found it to be one of the most responsible and enlightening books on what the Bible says about and what Jesus taught concerning the issue of Hell that I've ever come across. It is a must read.
I did listen to it all in one sitting twice in a row and several times since.
A fantastic book to assist you in wrestling with an immensely heavy subject that has eternal implications based on which direction you choose to believe.
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.
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. The result is a commentary that stands critical scrutiny of scholars and reaches the heart of the believer.
This is a great warm up before listening to Sinners in the hands of an angry God by Jonathan Edwards!
The ease of understanding what they where discussing.
All of it was memorable. This will be a book I revisit often.
The entire book moved me, and gave me a lot to think about and re-evaluate my Christian life.
What if it's true?
I liked it when Francis Chan gave Biblical evidence for his perspectives.
I just like to move rather then sit.
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.
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.
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.
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.
All the passages that gave the truth about what the Bible says about hell.
Jesus & God
At first i was worried, but then he seemed to get more comfortable. Seemed convicted.
Believe it or not
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.
