Hell and Mr. Fudge

Film Description:

Hell and Mr. Fudge is based on a true story, An eccentric stranger wants to hire Edward Fudge for a bizarre project: He wants Fudge to investigate Hell.

Edward Fudge is a small-town Bible-belt preacher. Son of a respected church leader known for his conservative religious views, Edward is confident that whatever the Bible really teaches is right. Trained in biblical languages and theology, he finds the project intriguing. He agrees to take it on, not knowing where it will lead. He dedicates a year of his life to a systematic study of Hell – and his life will never be the same again.

As Fudge immerses himself in research, other aspects of his life begin to crumble. Leaders of his own denomination attack him for suggesting that members of other churches can be saved.

His own congregation – people he loves and serves – fires him after he invites a black man to pray from the podium. The publishing company he has worked for since childhood terminates his employment because he refuses to recant his liberal positions.

He becomes so committed to his research that his relationship with his wife and children begins to suffer. And, most importantly, in the course of his investigation some of his core beliefs about God and judgment and eternity are shaken from their foundations. Ultimately, Fudge emerges as a defender of faith and Scripture, and a champion for God’s love.

Today Edward Fudge is a well-respected author, lecturer, and theologian. The book that resulted from his research, The Fire That Consumes, is a compelling study on the subject of Hell and eternal torment. It stands as a testimony to a man who had the courage to search for truth and to pay the price for what he found.

    I got to see the film at a screening in Athens, AL. I will vouch it is excellent. I even drove the real Mr and Mrs Fudge to the movie theatre in the car that was used in the movie . The car is a 1961 plymouth fury

    Just got my 3 copies of Hell and Mr. Fudge. We were privileged to have Pat Arrabito, executive director of the production, stay at our house and comment on a showing of the movie in Fletcher, NC, over this weekend. It can be ordered through the Hell and Mr Fudge Website. It is an excellent movie. There is another excellent review by Christian St. John, owner of the Christian Film Guide. It can be seen on his website. I would recommend this movie without hesitation.

    Hell and Mr. Fudge is a great story and well worth the time to see the film. We corresponded briefly with Mr. Fudge about the film and hope to be able to share it in a local theatre in the coming months. Based on a true story about a struggle between scholarly research and entrenched but not Bible based belief (according to study and research by Mr. Fudge) the film relates growth through faith and diligence and perseverance.

    Hey Dave, give us a heads up when you find out what theater will be playing it – we’ll make a shout for it then too.
