I've really appreciated Ramelli's research and passion for these topics. Her book "A Larger Hope" was my introduction to apokatastasis and the early churches belief in it.
This book is definitely worth buying if you are serious about digging into the root of our English uses of "forever, everlasting and eternal". With the doctrine of eternal conscience torment being the dominate theology in western churches, it can be an uncomfortable read, once you realize there's an entirely different opinion shared by both the New Testament writers and the early church fathers.
