What does the Bible say about Hell and Eternity in its original languages? This book focuses on both the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible to examine exactly what has been taught from the time of Adam until the time of Jesus regarding Hell and Eternity. Hell and Eternity: It's All Greek to Me is a book that systematically and thoroughly dismantles the ideas traditionally held by the Christian church about the afterlife and punishment. This book offers hope to all, and it does so through scriputre, not philosophy. It asks you to take the Bible at its word to test everything and put the traditional doctrine of hell to the test.
While the book is excellent--I have the paperback, the kindle book, AND the audiobook!)--and I think the narrator did a fair job, his continuous pronunciation of Hades (HAY-deez) as Hadas' (huh-DASS) was freakin' irritating! (I don't even think it's pronounced that way in Greek!) He speaks perfect American English, yet his pronunciation of that word was as if he had no clue how Americans say it! His pronunciation of Apocrypha was also as if he'd never encountered that word before (luckily IT was only in one chapter!). While I still enjoyed the hearing of the book being read, those few "pronunciation quirks" gave it just a slight irritation factor.
The book is incredibly valuable to me in understanding the message of Universal Salvation. It still trips me out how many of my fellow Christians turn "brain-dead" when I tell them how important it is to do an actual study of the key Hebrew and Greek words. It's like they're determined to dig in their heels and stick their heads in the sand, in order to hold on to the false teaching of Eternal Conscious Torment!

Well researched, well written good news about God's salvation that you'd never hear in church.
