Brian Zahnd joins the podcast to discuss his new book, Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God. In part 2, they focus on understanding the cross and Hell through the lens of a loving and nonviolent Jesus:

  • The idea tracing back to Anselm that God is satisfying his wrath, punishing Jesus, in order to gain the capital that allows God to forgive. (0:16)
  • The kind of justice which takes place at the cross. (6:42)
  • The view of wrath striking Jesus on the cross, and how we should see wrath instead. (14:11)
  • Hell and its various meanings which are not from Scripture. (23:16)
  • The parables of the sheep and the goats and of Lazarus and the rich man. (32:52)
  • How Brian preaches Hell. (36:48)
  • Interpreting the book of Revelation. (41:04)
  • The centrality of love. (45:31)
  • Brian’s hope for the book. (49:46)
  • Closing prayer. (50:42)
