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. 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 ...

No such a thing as hell
5 October 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Mackenzie Astin stars in this autobiographical film on the life of one Alan Fudge who became a minister and then started preaching some most heretical doctrines. Heretical that is to evangelical Protestantism. Fudge after doing much research says that there just isn't any such a place called hell.

That biblical verse on which you see emblazoned on many a Tee shirt, John 3:16 about God so loving the world that he gave his only begotten son, etc. is taken by Fudge to be a blanket pardon. No doctrine has to be accepted, no behavior modified or changed, simply accept the pardon and heaven is your's. As you can imagine that upsets a few pious and self righteous minds.

Fudge went through quite a lot for this belief, eventually according to the movie postscript he left the ministry and now practices law. A profession itself that has many doctrines.

Astin turned in a very good job in the title role. This is an interesting and different Christian film you might want to check out.
