5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hell and Beyond is a great read! 18 février 2013

Michael Phillips has written a wonderful allegory worthy of comparison with Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan and The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis. The literary device of allegory is used to represent or symbolize ideas and concepts. The ideas and concepts brought out in Hell and Beyond include our interconnectedness with every other human being we come in contact with either directly or indirectly. And God’s unsurpassable love for all human life and His unwillingness to ever let us go. It is God’s unsurpassable love that translates hell into God’s wrath being restorative love and compassion, not retributive justice. It is about the transformation of a fallen broken human being into the beautiful being God created him to be in the first place. You cannot read this book without taking a deep dive look at yourself and consider the transformation, hopefully already underway, in your own life. There are points in the book that will cause your emotions to well up from a place deep inside and call forth a longing for the fiery transformation the characters in the story must undergo. Reading Hell and Beyond I was often reminded of another transformation in another story. I have always loved The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. My favorite book in The Chronicles was always Voyage of the Dawn Treader. In the story a young obnoxious boy named Eustice is turned into a dragon. Eustice as a dragon learns courage and perseverance and love for his friends. It takes the power of Aslan to transform Eustice from a dragon back to a boy. As the companions are rowing toward Aslan’s country there is a conversation about their adventures. Eustice is asked what it was like to have Aslan transform him back to being a boy. Eustice describes Aslan ripping at the dragon flesh to remove it and reveal the boy Eustice. Eustice says having the dragon flesh ripped away hurt, “but it was a good kind of hurt.” That is the same picture I got from Hell and Beyond. Transformation, the ridding of all that is wrong with us, and the setting to right all that we have done wrong, hurts. But it is a good kind of hurt. It is a hurt that must trust in the goodness of God, the goodness of a heavenly Father that wants the best for us. He will not settle for anything less. I long for the day when my dragon flesh is ripped off, or the day when I will enter the fiery furnace of the Father’s love and all that is wrong in me will be ripped or burned away. In conclusion I highly recommend you get this book and read it for yourself. It may change how you perceive the Father, Son and Spirit, and it may help you shed medieval ideas about hell.

Christianity's history is heavily laden with divergent suppositions on just about every "truth". The human trait of each seeing or understanding the same event and then reporting it with a unique narrative is never more apparent than the accounts recounted in the Gospels. Some divergent opinions do indeed fall into heresy while others are safely within God's rich story. Today there is a storm within the Christian community over "end time scenarios". This book is a participant in that storm. It is an enlarging and exhilarating picture of one man's end time. I have no doubt that deep within each of us there lay the hope that "none should perish". This books takes us to the heart of that very hope. To those who have an adventurer's heart for the things of God, this book will draw you page by page to new vistas. Is this or the traditional view of our end (in reality our beginning) God's view? I don't know and I suppose that neither does the author. What I do know is that God was very much larger in my mind upon completing this celebration of His unending love for me. Remember, some storms bring refreshing life to parched lands.

If you are a unitarian christian, you will enjoy the book, but if you are some other "flavor" of Christian, there are going to be parts of the book that are at odds with your beliefs.

Does this mean you shouldn't read the book - no, not at all - it has a good fiction story line, and it has some good morals, and the author did a good job of conveying his thoughts and beliefs.

I limit my reading of Fiction Christian material but this is a quick read from a well respected author so gave it a try. My wife has ready many other books from Michael Phillips and enjoyed them all. In this one, we are forced to think about our traditions and our futures. And, while fantasy, Phillips knows the human heart and walks us through the changing of one. I enjoyed having to think about whether the loving and merciful God on this side of Life is anything anything but loving and merciful on the other side of this. Good brain and heart trip. It challenges our assumptions held in our traditions but does not offend most of the things we hold dear. In this book I never felt like I was being indoctrinated or pushed to agree with all that is written but simply put into different environments than one we usually travel. If you can stand the challenge to our traditions, the book is a good thoughtful expression of Hell and Beyond. Reading the authors The Commands as a follow up to Phillips thinking and teaching

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An interesting allegory 23 juillet 2013
Par Pennsylvania Joy - Publié sur Amazon.com

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this and find it rather difficult to describe. It is an allegory, reminding me of Pilgrims Progress. Instead of it being an allegory of the Christian walk on earth, however, it is of an atheist's journey after death.

He has many choices along the many paths of hell where he can continue in his beliefs or acknowledge his sins and have them burned from him, purifying him to the point where he can be acceptable to God. It is definitely not the traditional view of hell as the punishment of sin for those who had not turned to Christ while alive. I liked the concept of the burning tree that was massively infested with parasites that were destroying it. The fire was made so intense that although agonizing, it was necessary to destroy every parasite (sin) eating, burrowing, and infesting the various parts of the tree. When complete, the tree was alive and purified as gold or silver with all sin burned away.

For those of us with unsaved loved ones it offers hope; if it were true. The author offers scripture verses to support his story which I find plausible but I have difficulty accepting them. It seems to lessen Jesus' sacrifice for us. I love the concept of a God requiring justice yet who loves us so much that He remains merciful, offering second chances and loving the sinner while determined to utterly destroy the sin within him.

I guess I need to do as the author suggests: this is a fantasy, not factual. Accept that however God handles the punishment of sin, He is absolutely loving and just and will handle it better than any of us could. We leave hell to God to handle. That said, it was an enjoyable story and I found a lot of really good insights that I want to remember and incorporate into my life.
