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.

A friend had told me about this guy named Edward Fudge who had written a book about annihilationism. I had already had a problem with the concept of sinners burning in hell forever and ever even though that's what I had been taught my whole life. It just didn't seem like the heart of God that would cause or allow that nor did it make sense. It just seemed like overkill. This movie is a good introduction to the understanding of hell being a place where unbelievers go to be destroyed. His arguments are not only compelling but I believe very accurate as to the meaning of the scripture on this matter. Die-hard traditionalists blow off this teaching and call it heresy, but I doubt any of them have done the research and study that Mr. Fudge has done to get to the bottom of it all. Mackenzie Astin's performance as Edward Fudge is great and Keri Lynn Pratt (Sara Faye) is an angel.
