The Lie of Hell: Published! 30 March 2012

The Lie of Hell can now be bought from www.laddermedia.co.uk or throough Amazon or from the Spring Harvest bookstall – for those enjoying the sunshine at Butlins for the next couple of weeks.

The full quote from Edward Fudge reads

‘Bible-believing scholars are increasingly rejecting as unbiblical the old picture of hell as everlasting conscious torment. In its place most often they offer a biblical vision of evil made extinct, along with those people who prefer to perish with evil rather than to let it go.

 Leading the way in this important work have been a cadre of British biblical scholars–F. F. Bruce, John W. Wenham, Richard Bauckham, John Stott, J. I. Marshall, Michael Green,  and N. T. Wright—to name but a few.

 With this book we welcome to the conversation the fresh perspective of Anglican rector Roger Harper. Utilizing what some have called “red-letter hermeneutics,” Harper begins with the teachings of Jesus himself, then he uses those teachings as a lens through which he reads biblical writers in general. The result, whether right or wrong, is a stimulating and nuanced form of conditional immortality likely to invigorate Bible students of all persuasions.’ 

 

Edward William Fudge, author of The Fire That Consumes: A Biblical and Historical Study of the Doctrine of Final Punishment (Cascade Books/Wipf and Stock, 3rd ed., 2011).

 A movie, Hell and Mr. Fudge (2012), has been made of Edward’s life and work. See www.hellandmrfudge.com
