Considering Hell

Scot McKnight recently (that is a couple weeks ago) pointed to a discussion in The Christian Century concerning Hell. Having read Dante's Inferno this past year, I've been thinking afresh about what Christians should do with the doctrine. This great piece invites eight theologians from Martin Marty to John Franke to weigh in on what the place of hell should be in modern Christian thought and proclamation. Each piece is very thoughtful, and points to the importance of not allowing past abuses to marginalize this important facet of the Christian faith.
