Nicholas Chewney (1610-1685) was a puritan divine who was a powerful Reformed Gospel preacher and theologian.
This treatise was originally penned by Nicholas Chewney in response to a Socinian tract written by Samuel Richardson which denied hell. Chewney takes up the biblical and Reformed position on hell as Jesus Christ taught it in Scripture. The treatise is divided into four sections: he shows that there is such a place as hell, what this place is, and where it is. He concludes with a final section on application. He wrote this tract to simply allow Scripture to teach the church the biblical doctrine of hell.
As a result, his purpose in writing this treatise on hell was for the glory of God, both in his mercy and justice, for the comfort of all poor, believing souls, and for the terror of all wicked and ungodly wretches.
