A Consuming Passion
Essays on Hell and Immortality in Honor of Edward Fudge
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This new set of essays on the topic of hell's duration is a valuable contribution to the ongoing discussion on this important topic . . . What we have here is not a bunch of hobbyhorse theologians sitting around agreeing with each other, but a group of astute pastors and scholars wrestling with what God's inspired word says about hell. I commend this book to anyone who is wrestling with the topic of God's future judgment."
--Preston Sprinkle, Vice President for Eternity Bible College's Boise extension, coauthor of Erasing Hell and People to Be Loved: Why Homosexuality Is Not Just an Issue
"This excellent collection of compelling essays is not only a fitting tribute to the lifelong passion and work of a great scholar; it's a superb opportunity for readers to be relieved of the onerous weight of believing our loving Creator vengefully consigns people to an unending nightmare from which they will never awake. If you share this traditional view of hell, please do yourself a favor and devour this work!"
--Gregory A. Boyd, President of Reknew.org and author of Benefit of the Doubt: Breaking the Idol of Certainty
"This is a dangerous book. These eminently readable essays--by turns personal, exegetical, theological, and historical--have the potential to change the minds and hearts of the contemporary church on the question of final judgment. Read at your own risk!"
--J. Richard Middleton, Professor of Biblical Worldview and Exegesis, Northeastern Seminary at Roberts Wesleyan College and author of A New Heaven and a New Earth: Reclaiming Biblical Eschatology
