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.

It is one of the most profound stories ever told because it uncovers a view of God revealed in Scripture that has been muddled by age-old false doctrine which is not easily shed by those whose tradition embraces it. Be warned: if you opt to take this red pill, your life will be forever changed, your eyes opened and you will encounter the face of the God who truly is love and who wants to save and have relationship. You may also encounter the wrath of your fellow man, reticent to embrace this truth because they choose to follow the dim light of an orthodoxy that slanders God's grace-full and righteous nature. As the good book says, the wages of sin is truly death, not eternal life. Only our Lord Yeshua (transliterated Jesus) has the words of eternal life, and those are a free gift for those who choose them.
