Pack your bags and get ready for a hot vacation down in "HELL. This book tells the history of hell through era's of history dating back 5 millennium. There are not any fancy hotels though, no room service and there is not even cable! "For crying out loud" which is what you will be doing during your stay there.

The History of Hell book. It is not going too far to say that the Hell scenes of early apocalypses are a form of self-righteous pornography. Abandon logic all ye who enter here.

All kidding aside, Turner's book really is a fine exploration of the ways in which hell-or, more properly, the underworld-has been viewed by various civilizations throughout history

This seems like a really good book, showing the author's extensive knowledge of the history from ancient Egypt to modern times. As someone who teaches and needs to know where the author got her sources from, I was seriously upset with the lack of endnotes, which seems to have become increasingly common in history books these days. However, she knows her stuff (since I know it too), so I won't hold it against the publisher, who undoubtedly made the decision.

While it's pretty topical in it's explanations, I enjoyed it as much as any other book on the subject. It's more or less a Cliff's notes for Hell.

Loved this book! It was a very interesting read. Not too technical, so perfect bedtime read. Great anecdotes and really beautiful pictographs

We liked it. A fair amount of information.

I bought this book a while back and as a Christian Universalist who does not believe in 'eternal hell punishment' it is excellent.

I pretty much do all my reading on kindle now. Are you guys ever going to make it available in Kindle format? With a bit of research through Amazons site, it's really not too hard. Would love to see it.

Also, after, you might consider making an audio version, as I love listening to books when they are available in this format as well. Although that takes time so if possible, just get it on Kindle since I did it for my dad's book and it is surprisingly easy.

For a fair price that we could work out, I might even be able to help if you were interested.

And, I have professional studio recording equipment which I could also do an audio version if interested also :)

Author leave a reply and I will figure out a way to get in touch :D

I am very pleased with this product and will look forward to doing business with this merchant again in the future, The product arrived in great condition and everything met my expectations. This book is not from one religious point of view only. It's more historical than anything else.

Pack your bags and get ready for a hot vacation down in "HELL." This book tells the history of hell through era's of history dating back 5 millennium. There are not any fancy hotels though, no room service and there is not even cable! "For crying out loud" which is what you will be doing during your stay there. If you are not familiar with hell it is a place that has been recommended to myself and most people whom I ask, adults mainly. If a person was to examine all the faiths and pick any one at random then for sure there will be a religion that will damn you to hell. If you do not espouse to any faith then you are for sure going to hell according to so called experts. Either way, no matter what you believe, no matter how good and beneficent a humanitarian you are Hell awaits you. Watch the film "Red State" and top it off with all 17 seasons of "South Park" with audio commentary. You may be forever packing the right clothes(or at least while being alive) and preparing for your vacation to hell because "Plato's Retreat" was closed along with the "Turkish Bath's" in the late 1980's. Happy Trails. :-)
I'm so happy I got this.
