What is hell really like?
How accurate is Dante? The great Puritan minister Jonathan Edwards preached on Hell’s torments a number of times. In one of his most famous oratories, “Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God,” he describes how “The wrath of God burns against them, their damnation doesn’t slumber, the pit is prepared, the fire is made ready, the furnace is now hot, ready to receive them, the flames do now rage and glow. The glittering sword is whet, and held over them, and the pit hath opened her mouth under them.”
