    I strongly believe we need to have a pamphlet on Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. I sent emails to you all, and hope that we can get the Hell one done soon. Then we can attach Purgatory and Heaven.

      Ed, what about Hell would you like to present to the people you speak with on the street?

      Ed, I brought up your suggestions with Steve (our president) and Adam (our chief operations officer). You’re not the only one who’s asked for a new pamphlet; we’ve also received requests for a simpler Rosary pamphlet and a pamphlet about Paul the Apostle. Adam recently asked me to tell you that we are all working hard as a staff to get our school of evangelization up and running, both the live version and the online version. Since the School of Evangelization is our current primary focus, we would be moving away from that focus by taking the time to create a new pamphlet, add it to our website, and stock our inventory with thousands of copies. However, if you check back with us in six months, things might be different, and we might be able to add a pamphlet on Hell. I hope this message finds you well. Try checking back with us in six months. God bless!

      Tan Books has some good resources from Doctors of the Church. They have Hell and Its Torments by St. Robert Bellarmine and What Will Hell Be Like by St. Alphonsus Liguouri. The title of the books will interest the modern reader, who is normally fascinated by all things dealing with hell. The fact that it’s a booklet will also be better suited for those who wouldn’t read an entire book. They can be purchased for as little as 75 cents a piece with a bulk order. Another good resource that you may wish to try is a sermon The Little Number of Those Who are Saved by St. Leonard of Port Maurice. This can be found online from various places, but olrl.org provides a four page copy for 10 cents each if you don’t wish to print it yourself. olrl.org is controversial because of its stance against the Novus Ordo Mass, but they have great traditional resources on their websites. The sermon is also controversial as it can drive a scrupulous soul into despair. I believe we need to talk about hell often (albeit prudently) because Our Lord spoke so often of hell, and the doctors and saints of the Church along with approved apparitions of Our Lady are unanimous that the majority of humanity goes there.

      Tan Books also has books from the creators of the show Radio Replies (Frs. Rumble and Carty) on Hell and Purgatory. They have bulk prices on these, too. I haven’t checked these out, but I wasn’t terribly impressed with their layout of the booklet I read on Mary and statues. The content was good, and it is laid out as someone basically attacking the orthodox Catholic position on various topics with the authors replying and setting the record straight.

      Did you see the pamphlet on The Four Last Things (Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell)? It might be exactly what you’re looking for: https://streetevangelization.com/docs/tracts/color/10-LastThings-Color.pdf

        Yes, I am very familiar with the pamphlet The Four Last Things. But there is not enough info in that one pamphlet for all three let alone Hell. I strongly believe we need one pamphlet for each. Heaven, Hell and Purgatory are too important to put into one pamphlet. To get those who left the Church, we need strong carrot and sticks. Hell is the stick and Heaven is the carrot. Purgatory can be a carrot too.
