Many Christians are deeply disturbed by the idea that there is a real hell in which people suffer forever and ever according to the Bible. This is especially true with respect to Christians who believe that they have loved ones who might end up in this horrendous place. What a relief it would be for them to see that such a hell is not claimed by the Bible. To that end, author John D. Frey leads readers on a well-researched journey that investigates what the Bible really says about hell. The author provides overwhelming evidence that there is no hell in which anyone suffers in any way and this evidence is based on what is claimed by the Bible.
The book contains 12 chapters. Chapter 1 presents the events that occurred in a place near the walls of Jerusalem called the valley of Hinnom, later translated to “hell”. Chapters 2-3 primarily deal with events surrounding Jesus and Isaiah. Chapters 4-5 discuss the events in the parables of Jesus and visions of John in the book of Revelation. Chapter 6 explores Bible passages that explain what finally happens to the unrighteous. Chapters 7-8 explore why both Gentile Christians of the second century and some modern Christian denominations believe in a hell in which unrighteous people will suffer forever. Chapters 9-10 explore the concepts of Sheol and Hades in the Bible and what Jewish Rabbis say about hell. Chapter 11 confirms the existence of heaven. Finally, in chapter 12, concluding thoughts are presented.
