In the mid-1970's, Edward Fudge, a young preacher in Athens Alabama, is approached by an eccentric Australian man who offers to hire him to prove whether or not an eternally burning Hell exists. Raised by a father who was a well loved,fundamentalist church leader, Fudge personally believes in a conservative theology which promotes the notion that people who are not saved will suffer torment in hell for eternity. But Fudge, a respected theologian and researcher, agrees to set his preconceptions aside and dedicate a year of his life to do a systematic investigation of the subject, for the small fee of $3000.00. As Fudge immerses himself in research, other aspects of his life begin to crumble. He comes under attack from leaders of his denomination for suggesting that members of other denominations may be saved. He is fired from the church he loves for inviting a black man to pray from the podium. He is fired from the publishing company he's worked for since childhood, because he refuses ...

I loved this film. It was so beautiful, hopeful and moving. I have never watched a movie that has changed my life like this one. It not only has a great script, acting and music but the message is so refreshing. I think that this film resonates with what bother Atheists most about mainstream Christians.It is not very often that you get a new perspective of hell and God's grace. What is even more awesome is that this is a true story I am betting the dislikes are from the people Mr.Fudge went up against in real life. Regardless this is a must see and a must share. I will definitely be watching this again. I wish it was in more theaters around the world.
