I just finished reading this book and…wow. I’m going to need a few days to process before I can actually write anything coherent about it. It was probably the book that has been the most challenging for me to read and actually finish (which is saying something because I’m an English major and I adore Shakespeare). It’s not that it was difficult as far as the level of language used, but because of the subject matter. I had read Love Wins by Rob Bell, so I really wanted to read this book to see what Francis Chan said to refute what was said, because I knew that Love Wins wasn’t biblically sound, no matter how much I wanted it to be. This has transformed the way that I view my relationship with God, as well as with other people. If you have doubts or questions about the Christian view of hell, or even just about the character of God, I strongly recommend this book. I will warn you, though, that it’s incredibly sobering and challenging to your faith and beliefs.
Also I cried a lot. It’s definitely worth it though.
