Great

I've really enjoyed the interviews and the response podcasts where they respond to specific traditionalist arguments.

Rethinking Hell

I have listened to Chris on his Theopologetics Podcast and enjoyed his broad range of topics. His level approach to hearing out people he may not agree with is a huge hit for me. I enjoy all of the people I have heard on the Podcast. I can thank you all for my change to Conditionalism . I enjoy a podcast where people can hear differing views and talk in a respectful manner. I wish we had more Christians doing this today. Thanks to the Team at Re-Thinking Hell.

Fair and honest

This ministry is the cream of the crop. They are not afraid to engage a difficult topic and have done their research. Also, they are not denying hell, they are sharpening the reality of what is meant but an eternal destruction.
