About Jack Marshall

I was born in California in 1957, but raised in Oklahoma, where my experience with Christianity began at the age of 19. After several years of attending various denominational and non-denominational churches, my love for the Bible and desire to understand the scriptures became a vital part of my life. Ordained in my twenties, I spent several years ministering in homes, jails, and churches. Through in-depth study for the past 40 years, I have discovered that the message of scripture is truly one of hope, love, and encouragement for the entire world.

In this day and age probably most people would agree that hell isn't a burning place somewhere under the earth where souls are eternally tortured. However, the author takes it a little further than that in a view that denies any traditional view of hell and endorses universalism, the idea that all will be saved.

The author starts out by refining the definition or even redefining some words. He recognizes a spiritual rising in addition to a physical rising. "Death" can be seen as walking in the carnal mind and tribulation can be seen as a purifying of the soul like a fire is used to purify silver or gold.

Similar views were endorsed by some early Alexandrians. I'm skeptical of views that depend on word definitions, but perhaps a reconciliation of ideas could depend on a good understanding of eternity, what Mr. Marshall has referred to elsewhere as the "eternal now." I remain open-minded.
