How do you remove paint from a brick fireplace?

Previous owner (a "flipper" actually) of our house painted the red brick fireplace bright white. I want to remove the paint, but I've heard this is really difficult to do.
I know that a common solution is to sandblast the paint away, but I wanted to know if there were any other alternatives that work. (Plus I've heard that the downside of sand blasting is that it can sometimes damage the brick itself.)
