This review of Jonathan Kvanvig's "The Problem of Hell" notes his rejection of the strong thesis that God consigns people to eternal hell. Rather, he argues that since God is good, he will want to preserve both being and rational choice, and that the burden of choosing to be with God or to not to exist is our choice.
