Andrew John Jukes (1815-1901) entered Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1842 he was ordained deacon but. after finding that he could not unfeignedly consent to all things prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer, he left the Church of England, and for the next 25 years he was the spiritual leader of an independent congregation in Hull.
His writings display a deep love for and understanding of the Scriptures, especially the typology of the Old Testament.
In 1867 he published The Restitution of All Things, a book refuting the commonly held doctrine of eternal punishment and advocating the universal salvation of mankind.
For this he was widely denounced as a heretic, even by many in his own congregation. The book today is considered one of the signature works on the subject.
It was written in response to a friend who had expressed his troubles with the doctrine of Eternal Punishment, this book is one of the best known arguments for Universal Salvation, the belief that God will save all of mankind. It starts with a fascinating discussion about the nature of Scripture and how all of God's revelations are seemingly contradictory. After discussing the main passages in support of both Universal Salvation and Eternal Punishment, he proposes the solution to the seeming contradiction: God saves all through His first-born or first-fruit people, He saves all through successive ages, and He saves all by and through death.
