Brian Jones’ Book, “Hell Is Real (But I Hate To Admit It)”

Brian Jones, minister at Christ’s Church of the Valley (Philadelphia), has written a book on the reality of hell, soon to be published by David C. Cook. I was asked to write an endorsement blurb for it and was glad to do so. Here is what I wrote:
“I like several things about this book. First, it takes the Bible seriously, especially its teaching on the subject of hell. In a time when many are trying to do away with hell, Jones accepts its reality without compromise and shows us Biblically why we must do the same. Second, this book comes straight from Jones’ heart. In it we are confronted with sound doctrine, but are also moved by the author’s personal testimonies and by the abundance of illustrative ministry experiences that appear throughout. Third, like all good doctrinal presentations, this book is very practical. Jones not only effectively convicts us of the ‘apocalyptic urgency’ of warning sinners about hell, but also gives very down-to-earth lessons on how to evangelize.
“I hope every Christian reads this book, and every preacher uses it as a sermon resource.”
