This may be Jeremy’s best book yet! What is more important than defending God’s character? Jeremy shows in a scholarly but readable way that the traditional understanding of Hell does not actually exist. The Great News is that you don’t have to defend or imagine God tortures people for beliefs while living for a short time on earth.
In What is Hell? Myers offers a very in depth, well-researched, and convincing reassurance that the modern orthodox teaching of the heinous doctrine of hell is undeniably false. There is no way, as Myers demonstrates with overwhelming evidence, that God's character could possibly be compatible with rejecting or torturing any of His/Her children for any length of time.
Author of Raising Hell: Christianity’s Most
Controversial Doctrine Put Under Fire
I grew up in a strongly Hyper-Calvinist Church. They taught that my value as a human being was equal to brokenness and being no more than a mist. To add to this notion was the picture of eternal damnation awaiting those whom God did not choose to be saved. Damnation was a place called hell which was filled with fire and eternal misery without any escape. This is what I believed for decades until I read Jeremy Myers’ latest book, What is Hell? His careful and balanced research into what the Bible was really teaching about hell is excellent. It debunks the 15th century view of the violent hell which came out of the confused thinking of church leaders of that time. This book is a must read for all people concerned about what happens to us in the afterlife. Jeremy demonstrates that a fiery hell doesn’t exist after death, but instead exists in this life pulling people into misery, violence, grief, sorrow, and poverty. He shows that Christ has the keys to the gates of hell in this life, and has opened these gates so we can enter in and help those who are trapped within. Read his book it will bring you peace in your soul about eternity, especially if you accept Jesus for eternal life.
–Grahame Smith, Crisis Counselor
Forget what you think you know about hell! In straightforward language, Jeremy systematically rebuts the view of hell on which many Christians have been brought up. He demonstrates that the traditional understanding is based on coopting verses from Scripture to support extra-Biblical ideas. You will find this book both instructive and eye-opening with a surprising vision of what hell could really be like.
International Church of Copenhagen
This book is certainly not another run-of-the-mill read. Though not pedantic, it is scholarly and quite thought provoking and challenging. It urges us to rethink don’t-rock-the-boat theology. Jeremy exposes old wives tales about hell that most of us have been unwittingly fed and haplessly swallowed. Going through this book prayerfully will reveal the tremendous effort he has exerted, in love, to display God’s ultimate goodness and grace.

I suggest you read it for yourself and consider the points the author makes. I am not ready to discard everything I have been taught after reading one book one time that challenges what I believe. However, I do believe there was much research used to support the interpretations shared inside. It will, I expect, make you think, as it did me. That is a good thing and a benefit to reading the book.
I am not a Bible scholar and don't have the time or resources or desire to try to refute what the author wrote. I do believe the Bible was written so that we can read it and understand it based on what it says to us and don't need to be Bible scholars to understand it. There is value in digging deeper and leveraging what Bible scholars have learned and books like this one provide us that opportunity.
The main thing for me is the "and How to Avoid It" part of the title. As long as we believe in Christ and accept His gift of salvation freely offered to us all, we can avoid Hell and experience Heaven for eternity. If we do that then what we believe we know about He'll does not really matter.
So, if you like new, fresh perspectives I recommend you get your copy of this book today and start reading. I am confident you will not be disappointed.
Many passages from the Bible that use the hellish imagery are analysed and explained, but the result is not one that you would expect. Instead you find yourself thinking "How did I not see this before?"
Get the book, read the book, update your mind...
My eyes have been opened and my understanding has changed for the better. I believe this book is a must-read for most Christians. The reason for the death of Jesus has also become so much clearer to me from reading this book. It just makes more sense now.
This book will be used by me as a reference in the future so I will read it again.
I have already used some of the explanations used here for discussions with fellow Christians.
Definitely highly recommended.
Well, the good Christian man I grew up into felt it was necessary to show my dad on his errors about hell. Many times we had this discussion and I always just felt that I was correct because of all the hellfire verses in the Bible.
I stumbled onto this "heretic" book by Jeremy Myers. I started reading with the intention to rip this book apart and give the author a piece of my mind. It never happened. I am 50 years old, my dad died 6 years ago and for the first time I have a better understanding on hell.
Thanks Jeremy, I fully endorse this book and hope this book will free many Christian from unnecessary fear of a burning hell.
