This titlle was first published in 2003. This book seeks to establish whether a Christian position must entail a belief in hell or whether Christians can hold a coherent theory of universal salvation. Richard Swinburne's defence of hellÂ depends on the argument that hell is necessary if humans are to be genuinely free.Â It becomes clear that the contemporary discussion of hell and universalismÂ cannot be separated from theÂ issues of human freedom and God's knowledge,Â and so HallÂ centres the discussion round theÂ question 'Are we Free to Reject God?' John Hick argues that although we are free to reject GodÂ there willÂ eventually be anÂ universalist outcome. Having examined the contrasting arguments of Hick and Swinburne, Hall builds on Hick's position toÂ develop an argument for Christian universal salvation which holds in balance our freedom in relation to God and the assurance that all will finally be saved.
