Yes, many have been a great blessing to me, too! Sometimes we need encouragement from others to preach what we know and feel in our hearts!

Blessings,

Some of the highlights for me:

Gerry Beauchemin - Hope Beyond Hell - highly recommended must read if you are honest enough to ask the tough questions
J. Preston Eby - The Savior of the World series - highly recommended as well

Also:

Martin Zender - Clay, Not Robots - funny and poignant
Charles Slagle - The Bottom Line - this is a MUST read - if God does not save everyone, the bottom line is He cannot or He will not!

Exclamation Another thing i am grateful to god for

Messengers of mercy indeed Heartsong!

Another thing I am grateful to God for is to learn that most Christians closest to the time of Jesus believed in universal salvation.

In his book
Universalism The Prevailing Doctrine Of The Christian Church During Its First Five Hundred Years
the author, J.W. Hanson wrote “The purpose of this book is to present the evidence of the prevalence in the early centuries of the Christian church, of the doctrine of the final holiness of all mankind."

The introduction reads, "The author believes that the following pages show that Universal Restitution was the faith of the early Christians for at least the first Five Hundred Years of the Christian era. He has aimed to present irrefragable proofs that the doctrine of Universal Salvation was the prevalent sentiment of the primitive Christian church."

Hanson wrote, "The salient statements and facts in all which will be found in these pages show that most of the early church fathers found
the deliverance of all mankind from sin and sorrow specifically revealed in the Christian Scriptures.”

And they were reading the Bible in its original language!

EVEN MORE GOOD STUFF THAT I AM THANKFUL TO GOD FOR

According to an email that I receved from Richard Condon, both THE MAIN LIBRARY, and the IN THE GARDEN section on his
GOD'S TRUTH FOR TODAY
website is 99% by several dozens of writers who believe the Bible teaches universal salvation.

I'm particularly fond of William Mealand's writings.
He has such an eloquent writing style!

Most of William Mealand's writings are in the particular section of Richard Condon's GOD'S TRUTH FOR TODAY website called
IN THE GARDEN

ENJOY
