The question of whether God can be loving and send people to hell is one people have been asking for a long time. Surely a God who sends people to hell cannot love them? Starting with a look at who God is and how we relate to Him, Benjamin Skaug looks at the difficult topic of hell, and what the Bible says about it.

Benjamin M. Skaug (M.Div., D.Min., The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Ph.D. candidate Gateway Seminary) is senior pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Highland, California. He is an adjunct professor at California Baptist University and has served as a Vice President at Gateway Seminary.
… a timely resource for both reminding believers of the role of hell in God’s purposes and warning unbelievers of their need to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Ben Skaug combines robust biblical–theological arguments with apologetic skill and pastoral sensitivity, and his Appendix is worth the price of the book. Highly recommended.

The historic Christian doctrine of hell raises eyebrows, scorn, and sometimes tempers. It is usually avoided or marginalized, since it might feel too embarrassing to believe in hell in such a tolerant society. For downright honest people, though, hell raises questions. … Those genuinely seeking answers will find help here.

With a pastor’s heart and theologian’s precision, Ben Skaug takes on challenging questions about life after death in this insightful book. His answers are biblical, forthright, and sobering. As you read, expect to be challenged intellectually. More importantly, prepare to be moved emotionally by the plight of unbelievers who have yet to receive the gospel. This book is a more than a theoretical treatise; it’s a call to action.
President, Gateway Seminary, Ontario, California
… Skaug has written a very clear and convincing argument for the certainty of Hell in general and more specifically answers the question How Could a Loving God Send Anyone to Hell? … This book provides thoroughly biblical answers to this extremely relevant issue and would be excellent resource for those trying to work through this topic or have friends that are struggling with it.
