The Last Word and the Word After That
Full Product Description
In this third installment of their adventures, Dan and his widening circle of friends grapple with conventional Christian teachings about hell and judgment and what they mean for our relationship with God and each other. Is there an alternative to the usual polar views of a just God short on mercy or a merciful God short on justice? Could our conflicted views of hell be symptoms of a deeper set of problems misunderstandings about what Gods justice and mercy are about, misconceptions about Gods purpose in creating the world, deep misgivings about what kind of character God is and what the Christian gospel is for?
Those seeking authentic ways to hold and practice Christian faith will find hope and insight in this intense and human fictional tale.

The Last Word and the Word After ThatJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Many will consider McLaren's writing and this series of books nothing more than liberal universalism but having been and still considering myself to be entirely convinced of the validity of the Bible for "teaching, correcting and rebuking" I think these arguments hold little water for clear thinking mature readers. This book will challenge your theology, your faith and your compassion for your fellow man and for most Christians none of these will be a bad thing. A brave and uncertain write for the exploratory heart.
Sometimes the book suffers from the painful insertion of really deep theology into a story which groans from the effort of carrying so much meaning. Illustrations are pushed too far. It is provocative, helpful and unresolved.
