One of my favorite blogs on our links list is Andrew Perriman’s P.OST site. It is always thought-provoking and relentlessly focused on trying to understand the Bible in the context of its narrative history.
Now Andrew has begun a podcast, and here is the first episode, entitled “The debate about ‘hell’: why both sides are missing the point.”
Here is his description of the talk:
The popular debate about “hell” has been misconceived. Our narrow theologies of personal salvation have blinded us to the large-scale narratives that give meaning to the language of wrath and judgment in the teaching of Jesus and of those sent out to proclaim his name among the nations.
I’m not sure I’m on board with everything Andrew Perriman teaches, but he makes some very good points in this podcase. I present it to you today for your study and consideration.
