New Book about Christian Universalism
« on: May 06, 2008, 01:49:31 AM »
Dear All,

You may be interested to know that I have written a new book called Christian Universalism: God's Good News For All People.  The book was just published last month by Sparkling Bay Books, a publishing company owned by Rhett Ellis (a UR believer who belongs to this forum).

You can get the book at Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Christian-Universalism-Gods-Good-People/dp/0967063183

Christian Universalism: God's Good News For All People has been endorsed by ministers from five different denominations:

"If you have longed for a God whose love will never fail any of us, even when we are at our very worst, you will experience joyful discovery in reading Eric Stetson's book, Christian Universalism: God's Good News For All People. Eric himself has experienced the healing hope of our Heavenly Father's never-failing love, so you will find far more than good-sounding ideas in these pages; your heart will be deeply touched as well."
-- Charles Slagle, author, evangelist, and former Pentecostal minister

"Well-written and conversational. The Biblical arguments and reasoning make this book accessible to anyone, even those who do not have a theological background. If you want to find out more about God's universal love and salvation, this is the book to read!"
-- Rev. Lillie Henley, M.Div., Pastor of Universalist National Memorial Church, Washington, D.C.

"A readable and personal introduction to one of the most prevalent views of salvation in the early Church. This highly recommended guide will surely present the truth of God's inclusive love and the ultimate restoration of all creation to a new generation of readers who are eager to hear this hopeful message."
-- Dr. George Zgourides, author, psychologist, and former priest in the Eastern Orthodox Church

"This book is a clear, concise, biblically accurate explanation of God's purpose to become all in all. It is approachable by theologian and layman alike. It is an excellent addition to the literature available on Christian Universalism. I highly recommend it!"
-- G. A. Roach, M.Div., D.Min., independent evangelical pastor and hospital chaplain

"True to the Bible and the spirit of the early Church, Christian Universalism reclaims Christianity for the millions of people who love Jesus but reject the harsh religion so often preached in his name. In contrast to the fear-based, hell-centered faith of fundamentalist Christianity, this book boldly and clearly proclaims the truly good news -- news of an unconditionally loving God who will eventually lead everyone to the experience of salvation."
-- Rev. Kalen Fristad, United Methodist pastor and author

Thank you Eric!

I will have a look at it.
It is much more possible for the sun to give out darkness than for God to do or be, or give out anything but Blessing and Goodness.- William Law

Man can certainly flee from God... but he cannot escape him. He can certainly hate God and be hateful to God, but he cannot change into its opposite the eternal love of God which triumphs even in his hate. --Karl Barth
