This book serves as a reality check for the gospel preacher. By way of clear exegesis, stirring quotations, telling illustrations and probing questions, Eryl Davies compels us to ask, ‘Does my preaching about the wrath of God reflect the manner and method of my Saviour’s?’ I remember being deeply stirred by this book when I first started out in the ministry in the 1980s, and it has had the same effect on me now, some 30 years later. Over the years it is fairly easy for a preacher to settle into preaching Biblical Truth in a way that he and his hearers are comfortable and at ease with. This book jolts us out of any preaching-comfort-zone by warning, urging and encouraging us to preach wrath, final judgement, hell and the glorious gospel in a way that our Master Preacher and Precious Saviour did.

Of the many reasons the Church has for giving thanks to the Lord for Eryl Davies, his writings over the years on this subject rank near the forefront. This book provides a thorough yet readable reminder of Christian doctrine sadly often neglected, both in personal meditation and public preaching, by the modern church.

Dr Davies has spent a lifetime serving Christ’s church as a Pastor, a theologian and a local churchman. The need for Biblical wisdom in dealing with the wrath of God is ably met by him. I commend this volume to you and pray that it will have a wide readership. It will take you a couple of hours to read, but it will be worth it. God willing your preaching will be changed by it and so will the people God has entrusted to your care.
Paul Levy, Minister, International Presbyterian Church, Ealing, London
Looking at the doctrine of hell has never been popular or palatable, but it has always been necessary. Dr Davies has undertaken his task with diligence and compassion. His pastoral concern, both for the church and world is clear in this honest, applied and necessary book.
