In this paper I argue that Karl Barth's doctrine of reprobation and hell has significant structural problems. I compare Barth's account to that of Jonathan Edwards. Although Edwards' doctrine is not without problems, there seem to be important respects in which his way of conceiving of reprobation (and hell) is preferable to that offered by Barth.
