Reviews - What do our customers think?
Professor of theology  May 11, 2005
How can God be good, yet send people to hell, and leave them there eternally? If he is omnipotent, why doesn't he save everyone? These are questions every thinking Christian has to face. The author, with graduate degrees from Yale, Fuller Theological Seminary, and Claremont Graduate University (Ph.D.), writes out of a personal struggle with such questions and traces his own journey from atheism to the view of George MacDonald, mentor of C. S. Lewis, who argued that a loving Father would never condemn his children to endless punishment, to what he insists is the more biblical view of Jonathan Edwards. This is not a book for professional theologians but for the ordinary reader who wants to see how the Bible's teaching on divine justice and divine mercy may be brought together and harmonized. Each of the three parts of this book consists of three chapters. The first, "Under Judgment," argues that God regards all human beings as guilty sinners and defends eternal punishment against universal salvation and annihilation of the lost. The second, "At His Mercy," argues for the Calvinistic view of predestination and election as the view most consistent with the Bible. The third, "Within His Embrace," argues that by his life and death Jesus fully satisfied the justice of God for his chosen people who are not only forgiven but given a title to eternal joy. In a final chapter the author attempts to draw all the threads of the discussion together. Each chapter ends with a prayer that reflects the author's personal struggle with the subject and the reasons for his conclusions. Every church library in the country would profit from the possession of this book, and hopefully every church librarian will be able to recommend it to every member. And all readers who want to think about this issue with an expert should consider buying this book.
 
Understanding the mind of God about heaven and hell  Oct 7, 2004
Highly recommended as an essential guide to understanding God's judgment and mercy. Clotfelter presents the differing views of serious Christian theologians, past and present and holds them up to the light of Scriptural evidence. This is a well-referenced work which offers a fair-minded, compassionate analysis of the concepts of heaven and hell from different schools of thought, always bringing the authority of the Bible to bear in the end.

This is a scholarly, yet engaging and very readible treatise on the doctrine of heaven and hell, reconciling God's justice with his mercy.

Can a discussion on this knotty theological issue be anything but tedious? In fact, this is one of the most encouraging books you will read in your spiritual journey. It will engage your heart as much as your mind as you read and inevitably will jump-start you forward in your spiritual journey.

In the end, Clotfelter wisely notes that "to be a good theologian, you have to want even more to be a good Christian" How true.
