Product description


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. 
–Mike Edwards 

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. 
–Julie Ferwerda
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.
–Michael Rans
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. 
–Nizam Khan
