I’m not sure what approach to traditional evangelicals best encourages dialogue. But I suspect that it may be better to first encourage an openness to those whose interpretations differ, than to press for a clinching universalist argument. Those challenged may need to see that universalists grasp and respect the case for their own interpretation.
Thus, indebted to Thomas Talbott’s stimulating presentation of three major alternatives, I attach my own enunciation of it, with Scriptures suggestive of each traditional belief, and my take on a universalist’s conclusions. I would welcome your impressions and alternatives.
