Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

How many heavens are there---and how many hells? The original biblical languages use several words for heaven and hell that mean different things. And to make matters still more interesting, other religions and philosophies have contributed their own ideas to the mix until it's hard to separate reality from speculation, falsehood, and folklore. Sense and Nonsense about Heaven and Hell helps you cut through the clutter to see what the Bible really reveals about heaven and hell, salvation and judgment. Learn about * Jesus: the only means of understanding heaven or hell * different biblical words for heaven and hell * the fires of hell: literal or figurative? * why hell has no exit doors * what we can and can't know about heaven * God's judgment: who will go where, and why Get ready for some surprises. This book will help you set aside your preconceptions and pierce through the myths and misinformation to gain an accurate, truly biblical perspective on heaven and hell. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I am a conservative Christian who did his own study on the Biblical view of Hell. I had come to the tentative conclusion that Jesus taught a certain type of Annihilationism (specifically, that those not forgiven of their sins by Jesus went to Hell for a finite period of time, the length dependant upon the severity of their sins, and then simply ceased to exist). I had read multiple books on the subject, and presented my view to multiple scholars. But it was not until I read this book that I was convinced of the faults of my view. They addressed every single one of my objections to the eternity of Hell in a very clear manner. Formal theological education is not necessary to easily follow the arguments in the book. I highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with questions regarding the Biblical view of Heaven and Hell.

Although this book is fairly small (199 pages), it is packed full of information on the topics of Heaven and Hell.

There is substantial confusion even among Christians about these topics. Part of that is undoubtedly due to the translation of several Greek words into just two words in English language Bibles. This causes frequent misunderstandings. One example is the word 'Hades', which is routinely represented as 'Hell'. The authors show why this should not be the case and clarify meanings.

Dr. Kenneth Boa and Robert Bowman Jr. clear up much of the confusion by reviewing what the Scriptures actually say about these subjects. They do it in a way that is easily understandable by lay people. This enlightening study is balanced and very well done.

It is well worth getting for anyone who would like increased understanding in this area.

This book served our small group well! We had many enlivening discussions as we tackled some of the misconceptions regarding heaven and hell. I highly recommend this book to any Christian wrestling with questions about life after death. The Biblical references were extremely useful and kept us grounded on the truth of God's Word instead of the many human ideas that we have been bombarded with in our society. Great book!
