Hell No! Extinguishing Christian Hellfire

Hell No! Extinguishing Christian Hellfire

John Shore
4.2/5 (13 ratings)
From the author:

"Subsequent to the release of Rob Bell’s outstanding book, 'Love Wins,' I received a lot of emails from people inquiring as to my thoughts on hell. As it happens I had a few, and so was glad to begin writing on the matter.

"It is my contention that the traditional Christian ideas about hell are grossly erroneous, damaging to the faith, and theologically untenable. I believe that in the ten short essays of 'Hell, No!' I prove this to be true. I know that’s a crazy-sounding thing to say. But there it is."

Praise for the author:

"The minute I started reading his stuff, I knew John Shore was a brother from another mother." -- Rob Bell, author of "Love Wins," "Sex God," and "Velvet Elvis."

"John Shore is America's leading non-douchey Christian." -- Dan Savage, "Savage Love," and founder of the It Gets Better Project.

"John Shore is funny as hell and smart as hell, which is good because I've heard that we're both going to spend a long time there." -- Tony Jones, "Theoblogy"; author of "The New Christians" and "The Sacred Way."

"Shore is a humorist whose work is more comedic than Donald Miller, and his appeal to Christians is more direct." -- Michael Spencer, a.k.a. The Internet Monk, and author of the bestseller "Mere Churchianity."

"John Shore's unique, honest, and passionate writings draw us to dig a little deeper, to listen with the intention of truly hearing and understanding each other. He gives voice to those without a platform; he puts into words our latent questions/ observations about today's topics that are begging to be addressed from the viewpoint of an informed Christian"-- Spencer Burke, founder of TheOOZE.com

"Shore is a madman and a genius."— Eric Metaxas, author of bestsellers "Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery," and, "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy," the Christian Bookseller Association 2011 Book of the Year.

"John Shore is a remarkably gifted writer who knows exactly what he is doing." — Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of "The Deep End of the Ocean" , "Twelve Times Blessed" and "The Breakdown Lane."

"John Shore, the legitimate son of Kurt Vonnegut and Dave Barry, writes with a freaky energy and humor and imagination that illuminate his characters’ and readers’ hearts. He’s the real thing.”— Richard Lederer, author of more than thirty books on the English language, including the bestselling "Anguished English" series and "The Miracle of Language."
