The unextinguished fire. The Orthodox teaching about hell
Can the Church's traditional teaching about hell be reconciled with the vision that God loves man?
Representing a detailed answer to this major question, but also to many others of the same depth - without ignoring the "fashionable theories" about hell in contemporary culture - Father Lawrence R. Farley's book can also be considered a historical-hermeneutic study. on the so sensitive subject of hell and eternal punishment.
This volume seeks to assess the foundations of the Church's traditional teaching about hell. It does not claim originality, but only fidelity. And the temptation to withdraw and reject the Church's traditional teaching about hell is especially strong in our current culture, which has obviously lost its sense of sinfulness.
