The Inescapable Love of God, by Thomas TalbottThe Inescapable Love of God
By Thomas Talbott

(1999, Universal Publishers. 220 pages — paperback)

In this well-written book, Tom Talbott describes his theological journey on the way to embracing a belief in universal reconciliation, and sets forth a positive case that the New Testament clearly teaches universalism. A significant theme that runs through this book is that, in contrast to Calvinism and Arminianism, according to universalism, God’s love is unlimited and God’s redemptive purposes are unthwarted as well.

“Talbott puts forth the most logical, biblically grounded case for universal reconciliation one might find anywhere. … If someone is looking for the closest thing to a comprehensive explanation of, and case for, biblical universalism, this would be the book to get.” — Alvin C. Grissom

Raising Hell: Christianity's Most Controversial Doctrine Put Under Fire, by Julie FerwerdaRaising Hell: Christianity’s Most Controversial Doctrine Put Under Fire
By Julie Ferwerda

(2011, Vagabond Group. 302 pages — paperback)

An Amazon reviewer was spot on with this tongue-in-cheek critique: “Julie has not been to seminary and therefore her message is rife with the ignorant heresies you would expect from a regular lay person with no formal training.” But in her book, Julie Ferwerda actually shows herself to be an excellent student of the Bible as she lays out her defense of Christian Universalism that sounds like she is talking to you across the dining room table.

By Dr. Boyd C. Purcell, Ph.D.

(2008, AuthorHouse. 504 pages — paperback)

From Amazon: “Spiritual Terrorism is an insightful analysis of the problem of fear-based religion. As a physician, I can validate Dr. Purcell’s understanding of psychopathology. The anxiety which religion, or any other factor, generates has the potential to depress the human immune system, affect every organ, and impair bodily functions.” — Lewis Whaley, D.O., Oncologist

Christianity Without Insanity: For Optimal Mental/Emotional/Physical Health, by Dr. Boyd C. Purcell Ph.D.Christianity Without Insanity: For Optimal Mental/Emotional/Physical Health
By Dr. Boyd C. Purcell, Ph.D.

(2012, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 222 pages — paperback)

From Amazon: “Bravo!… this book is well written, crystal clear and pulls no punches. It is a wonderful and at times, sad expose of how literal interpretation of the Bible has lead many to insanity and diminished health and aliveness. As a recovered Catholic… I applaud the message in his book. It provides real life examples of people who live more fully now that they have overcome the image of a fear based God.” — C. Wilger
