Heaven and Hell: The View of the Early Church
« on: June 04, 2013, 03:38:33 PM »
I am currently listening to the first of these three lectures/discussions, and finding it to be fascinating and educational. Great speaker (Dr. Clark Carlton). Perhaps some other posters here will find it beneficial, too.

Having finished listening to the first hour-long session, I can now sincerely and heartily recommend it. Insightful! :)

I just began listening as well, almost through the first session. Good stuff so far.

I listened to it recently... disagreed with some of his points, but that's to be expected. Overall I was pleasantly surprised.
