George W. Sarris is the author of a soon-to-be published book with the working title, Ultimate Restoration: A Book About What Happens at the End of Time.
Ultimate Restoration is a carefully researched, well documented study by a seminary educated, theologically conservative Christian that looks honestly and carefully at the major Biblical and historical issues relating directly to the concept of Hell. It concludes that the traditionally held belief in the conscious, endless suffering of the wicked is not the true teaching of Scripture.
The book argues persuasively that the Biblical Hell is remedial in nature, and temporary in duration. God will ultimately restore all of His creation to its intended perfection.
"This is certainly one of the better arguments I have heard for universal restoration. You are thorough and fair with all the appropriate texts and theological concerns. . . . I have read a fair amount on the topic, so I know the issues involved. I wish Rob Bell had taken the trouble to lay out his arguments in such a clear and responsible exegetical fashion. We might be able to have an intelligent conversation about the topic in our movement!"
-- Mark Galli - Senior Managing Editor, Christianity Today
"Bravo! While I'm not yet sure what I make of all his conclusions, I am quite sure that my friend George Sarris should be applauded for beginning this extremely important conversation in a way that is not merely provocative or sensationalistic, but that is decidedly thoughtful, courageous, and humble. May all who engage what he says be so as well, to the glory of God."
