Hellbound? Now For Sale

Many of you are following the release of the documentary Hellbound? But if you are not, the documentary is now for sale.

(Beyond the DVD, the documentary is also available on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play and Youtube Movies. And for those outside North America, it is available exclusively on Vimeo-on-Demand. People can order the film on all formats through the Hellbound? shop. The Amazon DVD is above.)

Most of my contribution was in conversations with and book recommendations for Kevin Miller, the director of the documentary. But if you buy the DVD a bit of my interview with Kevin can be found under the Special Features, along with people like Edward Fudge, the man who, literally, wrote the book on annihilationism.

One of these days I need to write a book about universal reconciliation.

In the documentary itself you see interviews with people across the theological spectrum, from Brain McLaren to Greg Boyd to Mark Driscoll. And I particularly like Michael Hardin's Girardian contributions to the film.

  1. I'm just throwing in my vote for a book on universal reconciliation! If you write it, I'm in for multiple copies... ;-)

  2. Dr Beck, I would greatly welcome a book from yourself on universal reconciliation. I have read quite a few books on universal reconciliation and although I would defiantly say I'm a hoper in "The Blessed Hope", I always feel there's just something missing from the books I've read. That's where I think you could make an invaluable contribution. I think if you brought your work on "the slavery to death"series as well as your understanding of the non violent atonement into a work on UR it would create a fuller and even more beautiful picture of UR.

  3. I think it is unfortunate that your interview was cut from the actual film entirely, but the finished product is still really good. What was your impression of the movie as a whole?

    Also if you did write a book on universal reconciliation that would be awesome and I would definitely buy it.

  4. I liked the movie a lot. Some of it is just good entertainment (e.g., the Westboro people are crazy but riveting), but there's also some solid theological content. It's also a nice popular-level introduction to various views regarding hell. Basically, I think the film does what it set out to do: bring to the surface the questions people, Christians included, have about hell.
