N.T. Wright on hell

(See also this book by him. And this one, by that other British Anglican guy. And this podcast for a different perspective, which you can find free on iTunes, but I don't know how to link to that.)

What do you think? Since adolescence I've discovered the Bible isn't nearly so clear about heaven, hell, and the afterlife as I thought it was. It's clear enough (whatever hell or judgment or separation from God mean, you don't want it), but the Bible does not usually speak in ways that lend themselves to tidy diagrams and charts.

I know this isn't a fun conversation to have, but I think it's one we need to have.

Trav, I have so many thoughts about this.. I REALLY agree. Could it be that when Jesus said all He really meant ALL?? Such a thought!! Check out Jess' blog: http://executingadam.blogspot.com/2009/01/evangelism.html
