Who it's for:
This talk is for anyone who wants to understand how art has influenced our understanding of hell, and what the Bible actually says about it.

Description:
Of all the Christian beliefs that sometimes cause concern there is none so difficult as the concept of Hell (we seem less concerned with the idea of heaven). But the question must be asked – are our views of heaven and hell actually biblical, or do they owe much to Art, the Middle Ages, or Dante’s famous book Inferno? It would seem that the Middle Ages’ artistic minds teemed with graphic images of the otherworldly places and much of our present bother seems to relate more to this than actually what the Bible says. So, we are going to have a fun look at some of these wonderful imaginative paintings and art forms and what the Bible says and then see what we should be understanding about these important but much misunderstood beliefs.

Format:
Lecture and Q&A

This talk will also be made available on Zoom for registered participants.
