Universal Salvation? The Current Debate
Universal Salvation? The Current Debate by Robin A. Parry & Christopher H. Partridge
Much of this book was way too deep for me, and perhaps we could spend our time in different ways than arguing over semantics. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book for the following reasons, 1) it was a very civil debate (a rarity among Christians) on a contentious topic, and 2) there are many sincere people out there that share similar thoughts on the afterlife and the here-and-now...though I'm not a universalist, the book helped me process some thoughts.
