It may interest some people that Steve Hays has responded to my four part response to him. In the interests of fairness you may wish to read it.
In summary: he still disagrees with me and still things I am a bad and dangerous person.
Oh dear. Never mind.
I have already said that I will not be responding to it (not because I cannot but because I judge it to be fruitless). Readers must judge for themselves the merits of our respective arguments.
It simply remains to thank Steve for all the hours he has put into reading my book, and responding to it. It is an honor to be taken seriously, even if only in order to be 'refuted'.
I also thank Steve for making the book more widely known and inadvertantly communicating that its arguments warrant serious consideration. I hope that others follow his lead in reading and considering the case for universalism. Perhaps he has increased the sales a little. :-)
