Hell is real and terrible. Evangelicals agree about thisunhappy truth. Hell is the fate of those who reject God. Yet on somequestions about hell not all agree.

Some evangelicals believe the wicked will experience perpetual,conscious torment after death. Others argue that the wicked willexperience a limited period of conscious punishment and then they willcease to exist.

In this book you will find an irenic yet frank debate between twoevangelical theologians who present strong scriptural and theologicalevidence for and against each view. Both make a case that their viewis more consistent with Scripture and with the holy and just nature ofa loving God.

Robert Peterson defends the traditional view that those who do nothave faith in Christ will suffer eternally in hell. Edward Fudgeadvocates the conditionalist perspective that after a period ofsuffering, the unfaithful will experience a complete extinguishing, orannihilation, of existence. In addition, each author presents arebuttal to the viewpoint of the other.

Here is a dialogue that will inform and challenge those on bothsides, while impressing on all the need for faithful proclamation ofthe gospel of deliverance from sin and death.
