By C. Seymour

In A Theodicy of Hell Charles Seymour tackles one of many so much tricky 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 obstacle through arguing that any sin, irrespective of how moderate, benefits never-ending torment. modern thinkers, nevertheless, are inclined to cast off the retributive point from hell completely. Combining old breadth with special argumentation, the writer develops a singular knowing of hell which avoids the extremes of either its conventional and glossy competitors. He then surveys the battery of objections ranged opposed to the potential of everlasting punishment and exhibits how his `freedom view of hell' can face up to the assault. The paintings should be of specific value for these drawn to philosophy of faith and theology, together with lecturers, scholars, seminarians, clergy, and an individual else with a own wish to come to phrases with this perennially tough doctrine.
