In this book Thomas Talbott seeks to expose the extent to which the Western theological tradition has managed to twist the New Testament message of love, forgiveness, and hope into a message of fear and guilt. According to the New Testament proclamation, he argues, Gods love is both unconditional in its nature and unlimited in its scope- hence, no one need fear, for example, that Gods love might suddenly turn into loveless hatred at the moment of ones physical death. For Gods love remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. But neither should one ignore the New Testament theme of divine judgment, which Talbott thinks the Western theological tradition has misunderstood entirely. He argues in particular that certain patterns of fallacious reasoning, which crop up repeatedly in the works of various theologians and Bible scholars, have prevented many from appreciating St. Pauls explicit teaching that God is merciful to all in the end. This second edition of Talbotts classic work is fully revised, updated, and substantially expanded with new material.
