The Battle Over Hell
Here's an excellent article by Keith Stump that describes the centuries long Battle Over Hell. Prompted by the fact that the Christian doctrine of hell is considered, by many people including some Christians, to be one of the best 'arguments against Christianity', Stump surveys the various perspectives on hell and proposes his own solution. He esssentially argues that God, who is a God of love as well as of justice, must be able to work out a plan so that '[s]omehow, someway, every person will have a full opportunity to hear the gospel and repent.'
