Publisher's Summary

Is a doctrine of everlasting punishment in hell consistent with God's perfect love and perfect justice? And what implications does this traditional doctrine carry for the nature of divine grace and mercy. In Hell in a Nutshell Charles Watson, Sr., argues that we should not allow a received doctrine, such as the doctrine of hell, to determine our understanding of God's justice, love, and mercy; instead, we should allow a biblically informed understanding of these divine attributes to shape our understanding of every received doctrine, including the doctrine of Hell.

A compelling, and detailed look at the strengths of Christian Universalism

I’ve read countless books on this subject, pro and against, and I can honestly say that this is one of the most comprehensive from a philosophical, and a commonsense basis... which is sometimes lacking in other books; yet this book also honors the biblical AND Christ honoring ethic, that God shall not fail his creation, and that His love never fails!

A good book with a good point but a long journey getting there

I really liked the points made in this book in support of Christian Universalism (CU)and I will recommend it. However, thought points are very good and well made, the author takes a long time getting to them. I do appreciate what I think he was trying to do, but he ends up spending too much time on how he came to believe in CU, discussing various thought processes of other belief systems and opposing views. Much of the backstory could’ve been summarized into one chapter and the meaty material expanded more. Nonetheless, it was well-written and eventually informative.

Salvation

Great book on universal reconciliation. Lots of good scripture references. Would highly recommend for those interested in studying ECT.

Certainly worth the listen

He brings up many good points for Calvinists, Armenians, Universalists of all types and all who read the bible regarding the idea of just what the bible means by hades, Gehenna, Tartarus, and what we have been taught Hell is. This leads to better understanding the character of God. It is sometimes a bit repetitive for my taste,, but not overly so.
