Christopher W. Morgan and Robert A. Peterson. Is Hell For Real Or Does Everyone Go to Heaven? Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2011. 96 pp. $9.99
It is unusual to hear about the doctrine of eternal punishment these days. Indeed, it is rare to hear a sermon that dares to address the very notion of hell. Christopher Morgan and Robert Peterson are the editors of the excellent work, Is Hell For Real Or Does Everyone Go to Heaven?
The short and readable book includes five chapters which are authored by Albert Mohler, Robert Yarbrough, Christopher Morgan, Robert Peterson, and J.I. Packer. Each author addresses the doctrine of eternal punishment for different angles. Yet each author is committed to the biblical doctrine of hell.
The respective authors explore the reality of hell, Jesus’ teaching concerning hell, and related topics of annihilationism and universalism. Each author defends this all-important biblical doctrine and remain faithful to the teaching of Scripture.
Is Hell For Real Or Does Everyone Go to Heaven? is not meant to be a comprehensive treatment on the doctrine of hell. Rather, it serves as an introduction to this very important topic. Robert Peterson’s book, Hell On Trial: The Case for Eternal Punishment provides a more thorough defense. I recommend it highly!
