Four Views on Hell is here! Yay

Yay! I have received a copy of Zondervan's new Four Views on Hell. Here you find a respectful but grasping-the-nettle discussion on eschatological punishment. There's
  • An eternal torment guy (Denny Burk)
  • An annihilationist (John Stackhouse)
  • A universalist (Robin Parry)
  • An evangelical purgatory bloke (Jerry Walls)

It is good to find out what all the different contributors had to say about each other (especially what they say about me). And I have to say, it is very interesting—honest.
I especially enjoyed Jerry Walls' interactions with each of the other three.

The Forgotten Gospel Conference (August 2016)

I am so excited about the forthcoming "Forgotten Gospel Conference" in Denver, CO. It will be my first ever universalist gathering and there will be some fascinating folk there. (I should say that not all the speakers would feel comfortable calling themselves "universalists," but all would embrace some form of the wider hope.)

I am really looking forward to seeing some of those speakers—Wm. Paul Young and C. Baxter Kruger, Peter Hiett and Brad Jersak. And there are a whole bunch of other interesting folk who'll be there.

I am also looking forward to speaking to the gathering too — it is such a honour to be asked.

5–7 August 2016
3031 W. 31 Ave
Denver, CO 80211

We hope to celebrate Jesus in light of two ideas. First, that scripture is invaluable. It tells us the truth about God and His plan and who He is. Second, that the Lord will "reconcile  ALL  to Himself . . . making peace by the blood of His cross" (Col. 1:19)

We believe Jesus wins, the Bible tells us so and that this gospel - The Gospel - has been largely forgotten in our modern world. So, for three days we intend to worship the Lord by:

  • Proclaiming the victory of Relentless Love. 
  • Equipping each other to better proclaim Relentless Love.
  • Making new friendships that comprise His body at work in this world 


If you have some level of conviction regarding the authority of Scripture, and are intrigued by the biblical notion that God will “make all things new” (Rev. 21:5), this conference might be for you.
