Storyline

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.

Where do you end up when your spiritual walk takes a U-turn?
3 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Courage and strength highlight each chapter of this story as we watch one man lead his family through the most difficult path of all; the right one. How does a humble man, without pretense or guile, open up the minds of folks so set in their ways that they cannot bear to hear any truth but their own?

Laced with humor and colored with a dash of southern charm, this amazing drama is sure to be a classic reminder that we must set aside prejudices in all areas of our lives if we truly seek to find the truth. Edward Fudge has diligently dedicated his life to deliberately digging deeper into the scriptures towards a more comprehensive understanding of God. What he finds challenges his core beliefs and forces him to defend the truth in the face of unfamiliar opposition, his own brethren.

Better than any rousing sports flick, this is a fascinating tale; one worthy of at least two bowls of popcorn.
