About the Book

What is the eternal punishment of the lost? 

What is the eternal life that God promises his people? 

What is this “hell” which is claimed as part of Christian belief but goes against our sense of justice and rightness?

Why were Adam and Eve thrown out of Eden?

Can a God of love send most of those he has made in his own image to a place of nonstop torment?

What is the connection between the current heaven and earth and the new heaven and earth that God promises?

Beginning with the tree of life, and taking Hebrews 12.29, “Our God is a consuming fire,” as his pivotal text, Michael Greed addresses these and similar questions. His central argument is that there is only one fire in the Bible—our God, who is a consuming, purifying fire.
