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.
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.
Based on a true story, Hell and Mr. Fudge was honored with the 2012 Platinum Award in the "Theatrical Feature Film - Christian" category at the Houston International Film Festival.

This was especially true when it came to creative media like movies, music, and video games. I would spend hours dreaming about how rooms of animators had made the latest film or how recording engineers helped record the greatest hits. The technical and creative process really intrigued me. I spent my time on the computer learning to use Photoshop and trying to make my own recordings and animations.
It wasn’t long until I began to realize I had a deep interest in media . . . read more

I was recently watching an episode of VeggieTales with my 9-year-old son, and they were lampooning a classic sci-fi show. As Bob the Tomato—the Captain—walked onto the bridge of the starship, he squeakily commanded, “Status report!”
Well, 2015 is mostly behind us, so I might ask you the same question (although not in as squeaky a tone): “Status report!” As this year has progressed, how has your relationship with . . . read more
