By C. Seymour

In A Theodicy of Hell Charles Seymour tackles one of many such a lot tough difficulties dealing with the western theistic culture: to teach the consonance among everlasting punishment and the goodness of God. Medieval theology tried to unravel the problem via arguing that any sin, irrespective of how moderate, benefits never-ending torment. modern thinkers, however, are inclined to get rid of the retributive point from hell solely. Combining historic breadth with designated argumentation, the writer develops a unique knowing of hell which avoids the extremes of either its conventional and sleek opponents. He then surveys the battery of objections ranged opposed to the opportunity of everlasting punishment and exhibits how his `freedom view of hell' can face up to the assault. The paintings might be of specific significance for these attracted to philosophy of faith and theology, together with teachers, scholars, seminarians, clergy, and a person else with a own wish to come to phrases with this perennially demanding doctrine.
