    One thought on “Universal Salvation?: The Current Debate”

    1. After being slightly disappointed that Rob Bell s Love Wins did not in fact present an argument for Universalism, I looked up this book and it definitely had what I was looking for an intense theological debate looking at all the reasons why it is or isn t true, with both sides taking the scriptures seriously The book alternates between Universalist, Arminian and Calvinist perspectives each arguing for their own interpretation of scripture There is a lot of thought that went into this book and i [...]

    2. Prior to the publication of Rob Bell s Love Wins , Thomas Talbott and other Christian philosophers and theologians had argued that universalism was true U All human persons will eventually be fully reconciled with GodSo understood, Universalism is logically incompatible both with the traditional doctrine of Hell and the somewhat contemporary Annihilationism H Some human persons will never be fully reconciled with God, but will instead spend eternity in a state of conscious torment A Some human [...]

    3. An essential read But AFTER reading The Inescapable Love of God by Thomas TalbottBecause various christian theologians of various creeds denominations take on Talbotts view which is Christian Universalism, and is elegantly explained in the previously recommended book , they debate him on various doctrinal theological points they feel prove Christian Universalism to be a false teaching some express it as a heretical teaching, others as a well wishing but ultimately incorrect view In my humble opi [...]

    4. Good book, with caveatsI would say several things regarding this book First, the Kindle formatting is unforgivably poor, especially as regards the footnotes, and it looks as if someone simply scanned the hard copy in However, as I am reviewing the book, not the formatting, it seems foolish to deduct stars for this Still, I would hope the formatting would be improved in the future.To really get everything possible from this book, it is advisable that the reader first purchase and read Thomas Talb [...]

    5. An excellent dialogue about the topic of universalism The range of scholars is impressive, the arguments on big sides are respectful, and there is much to be learned.

    6. A challenging book, set up in a debate style format, that presents opposing viewpoints on the question of can will God save all people.

    7. Good introduction to the issue But I think Parry Gregory MacDonald does a better job than Talbott in presenting a humble honest overview in Evangelical Universalist.

    8. This book provides all of the best contenders for different positions regarding universal reconciliation all in one relatively easy to read survey.

    9. While dense, this was a good read The format which allowed both sides or, all three space was refreshing and felt quite even handed.
