The Duration and Nature of Future Punishment
The Christian Church confesses there will be a future punishment.
But the church’s answers regarding the duration and nature of that inevitable punishment are famously varied. This seminal work, originally published in the nineteenth century, provides a coherent and reasoned response to the traditional understanding of hell and punishment. Henry Constable lays out the case for a punishing that eventually ends as God finally sets to right his created order.
As with any quality work on a controversial topic, this book raises critical issues, challenges presuppositions, and sets forth a rational understanding of the key biblical texts. Christians who wish to understand the biblical teaching on hell with greater clarity should warmly welcome this valuable and insightful book on a hard subject.
