An excellent and thoughtful essay on the nature of hell, by C. R. Hardy at NRO.

An excerpt:

And then, neither of us looking at the other, she said the following slowly and deliberately, as if she had been formulating the thought all afternoon: I also believe that hell exists. But I just realized that I dont live as if I believed that hell exists. And Auschwitz, thats just what man can do. But what can God do?
Go read it.

This was my favorite passage from that:

[If there is no hell, then everything is permitted. Then Hitler is the same as you and the same as me, and he is laughing because now hes only watching the game.]

The existence ofa Hell assumes that God requires certain behavior and certain results.

Except a perfect deity requires nothing and lacks for nothing.
