In eternity, God will deal lovingly and effectively with all sin and evil. God will not, however, deal with sin and evil eternally. There is no need: God will destroy all sin and evil while saving everyone who ever lived. There is no eternal hell. This book presents reasons for such a large and hopeful faith. ""Ronald Vaughan's book, in which he advocates God's universal love, which means no eternal hell, is a must read. His view is confirmed by what Jesus taught, and by claiming that the apostle Paul's view of the life to come changed from a belief in eternal torment to a conviction that God's love extends to everyone, even beyond death. Vaughan's belief in 'progression to perfection' in the afterlife is reasonable and believable. If you read The Love of God and The Age to Come it will challenge old views, give assurance to those troubled by threats of eternal hell, and provide a new perspective on the life after death."" --Richard L. Morgan, author ""Vaughan's biblical research enables him to state that the satisfaction theory is not endorsed in the Scriptures. He asserts that God wants us all to spend eternity with God. We are given opportunity during and after life to grow into the acceptance of God's love for us--even if that takes an eternity. There is no everlasting weeping and gnashing of teeth. Everyone who reads this book, who has ever rejected the vindictive image of God, will be healed--will finally be able to open themselves to God's loving embrace."" --Jane M.
