Hell courtesy of Dr. Gregory Boyd

Since reading "The Great Divorce" by C.S. Lewis I've had the feeling that the mythological fire and brimstone image of hell is not the last word on the subject. In a sermon to his congregation on Jan. 4, 2009 Greg Boyd unleashes a scholarly study of the Bible on this subject. Surely if a person is pre-destined to believe that St. Thomas Aquinas had the last word on the subject you will not appreciate Dr. Boyd's treatment of the text. If you, however, have a hard time reconciling a God who calls himself 'Love' with the idea of eternal anguish in a burning cauldron of fire then listen to this guy put it all together. Its a beautiful work.
