Raising Hell: Christianity's Most Controversial Doctrine Put Under Fire

Have you ever wondered...do earthly parents love their children more than God loves us? Does God ask you to forgive your enemies—as many times as necessary—when He is not willing to do the same? Is being punished forever for sins committed in a short lifetime really a demonstration of justice? Does everybody get the same fair chance to believe in Jesus before they die?

Most of all, if hell is mankind's worst possible fate, and if God is truly loving, then...

- Why does He fail to mention hell in Genesis as the price for sin?

- Why doesn t the Old Testament ever speak of hell?

- Why does Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, never once mention hell?

- Why was hell not part of early Church established doctrine?

Dare to question. What have you got to lose? If you've ever had doubts or questions about the justification for eternal torment, Raising Hell will open your eyes to a radical new look at God's love for all mankind—and what the Good News is really about. Picking up where Rob Bell and others leave off, Julie Ferwerda offers compelling evidence as to why she now believes the doctrine of eternal torment is the biggest deception of the modern Church.

What people are saying about Raising Hell...

"Mercy triumphs over judgment...brilliant reminder!" —Saint James

"Ms. Ferwerda dares to believe in a victorious gospel, where God actually wins and Satan loses. The author promises much more than God possibly can or will deliver! If you read this book, you may be putting your soul in danger of eternal hellfire!" —Pastor Todd Doubter

"This book fully explains what was meant by the famous declaration of long ago: 'Good news of great joy shall be for all the people.' I love it and will buy it for eleven of my friends!" —A. Fisherman

"Julie has not been to seminary and therefore her message is rife with the ignorant heresies you would expect from a regular lay person with no formal training." —Dr. Theo Logian PhD, M.Div., D.Min.

"My opinion? Julie Ferwerda is going straight to hell with Rob Bell!" —The Church Lady
