Randal Rauser is Associate Professor of Historical Theology at Taylor Seminary in Edmonton. He’s an evangelical Christian who holds to the traditional heaven-or-hell scenario. However, I think his views are quite interesting, and you might feel similarly. His blog is called The Tentative Apologist. A recent post of his was titled Universalism isn’t a four-letter word. [Ed. note April 4, 2014: I had originally had this title hyper-linked the the Christian Post page where this post was located. However, they seem to be no longer maintaining this page so I removed the link. Alas, the comments that were there seem to be gone with the page. Sorry.]
Because his blog is published by The Christian Post, you can also find this post here (the comments will be different, of course – which is why I’m providing this link in addition to the other one). In a response to a comment, Randal points out that church father Gregory of Nyssa (335-394), among other famous theologians, taught universalism.
Here are some follow-up posts he wrote on universalism (all the links are to his own blog, The Tentative Apologist):
