Future Probation Examined


Funk & Wagnalls 1888

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


William DeLoss Love’s goal in this work is to examine the theory of probation after death in the light of Scripture as well as the pertinent religious literature before and after Christ. By examining the literature next to Scripture, we can get a kaleidoscopic view of Scripture instruction. Love quotes from the Targums, Josephus, Clement of Rome, Ignatius, Tertullian, Origen, Lactantius, and from Scripture. He compares the orthodox doctrine of one probation with the doctrines of annihilation, soul-sleep, and prayer for the dead.

Praise for the Print Edition

Dr. Love has rendered a needed service to the Christian ministry by compiling, in brief form, the opinions of many writers, some of whom preceded and others succeeded, by centuries of time, the days of Christ, concerning the new dogma of future probation.
