In addition to an explosion of blog activity, recent months have seen a spate of hastily published books, written in response to Rob Bell’s Love Wins. For instance, here, here, and here—and who said evangelicals tend to overreact?
In the midst of all this hoopla, the long-awaited third edition of The Fire That Consumes by Dr. Edward Fudge has been released with little fanfare. Fully updated, revised and expanded, the third edition is a major rewrite forwarded by Richard Bauckham. Completely updated with current scholarship, this edition notably includes responses to 17 authors of 12 traditionalist books written in response to The Fire That Consumes since 1982.
