Episode 3: Fire and Brimstone Pt. 1 – Hell in the Bible

Burn baby burn! On this week’s episode of the Theologist Podcast, David will be covering the topic of Hell. Is Hell a fiery landscape filled with demons and medieval torture devices? Or does it look like a weekend at your in-laws? This topic is so big it needs two episodes! This first episode will examine the Bible (and some extra-canonical texts) to find out what the ancient writers understood about Hell. Did they envision Hell the same way many 21st Century Christians do? All this and more on the Theologist Podcast. Get your sunblock and call Rob Bell, it’s going to be a cooker!

Surprised By HopeErasing HellLove Wins (See disclaimer below)

Disclaimer: ‘Love Wins’ remains controversial for many Evangelicals, but since ‘Erasing Hell’ is a response to Love Wins, it wouldn’t be fair to read one without the other. My logic here is presenting Rob Bell’s argument without pretext so you can wrestle with what he says about the issue of Hell, and determine whether he presents an orthodox perspective or not. I may tackle my thoughts on Rob’s book in the next podcast. Cheers.
