Death and our ultimate destiny

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This chapter examines divine justice in relation to the Christian doctrines of judgement, heaven and hell. It traces the history of thinking about judgement and what drove certain views at certain times. It concludes that the belief in Christ's descent into hell led, in the end, to 'hell's destruction', with implications for how we view God's ultimate judgement and justice.
