'... a whole range of questions you probably hadn't ever thought of asking about hell are explored in this highly accessible and stimulating collection of essays... the overwhelming interest of the essays lies in their imaginative explorations of our free will and moral psychology, and the exposition of a range of theodicies. Contemplating hell, it seems, is a good place for the exploration of such important and central ideas.' Church Times '...[an] extremely interesting volume...' Journal of theological Studies 'It is a fascinating read, certainly rewarding for theologians and pastors who are concerned about the afterlife.' Lutheran Quarterly
