Mark Driscoll – the full “Hellbound?” interview

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but Vimeo has been giving me all sorts of technical grief. At any rate, it’s finally online. It goes for just over an hour, and it features everything you saw in the film and a whole lot more, including a spot where Mark gets a little [Read More...]

The Unbelievers isn’t a documentary, it’s hubris of the highest order

Let me begin by making one point clear: Unlike many of my peers, I really like the New Atheists. I’ve read numerous books and articles by them, watched countless talks and debates, interacted with some of them online (PZ Myers and Steven Pinker), and I’ve even had the pleasure of meeting a couple of them in [Read More...]

Who was Harold Camping? This new documentary should refresh your memory

Harold Camping was the Christian radio broadcaster who issued multiple failed predictions of when the End Times would begin, making him famous and generating millions of dollars. Now a new film called Apocalypse Later: Harold Camping vs. the End of the World has just been released that documents Campings rise and fall. Filmmaker Zeke Piestrup had [Read More...]

52-minute version of “Hellbound?” now available

Good things come in small packages, or in this case, shorter packages. (Yikes, there’s no way to escape the innuendo, is there?) At any rate, we cut an abridged version of Hellbound? for CBC’s Documentary Channel, so I thought I’d also make it available online for those with short attention spans, don’t have a lot [Read More...]

This includes North America and the rest of the world. We will begin taking pre-orders on the DVD in early May. Stay tuned! In the meantime, [Read More...]

Will I see you at a “Hellbound?” Q&A screening this weekend?

I’m about to do another lightning tour across the US that will see me hit four cities in four days, from the Midwest to the Southwest, before returning home to help open the movie in Vancouver and Langley on Oct. 12. Here’s the plan: Friday, Oct. 5 – I will be in Omaha to do [Read More...]

Would Jesus walk with you in hell?

A band that I can’t seem to get enough of these days is the groove metal group Lamb of God. They’ve been around for years, but for some reason it’s taken me a while to catch up to them. In fact, it was the experience of filming at Copenhell for Hellbound? that renewed my interest [Read More...]

Do you have faith, or merely fear?

If our faith is primarily a mantra to drive away punishment, our faith isn’t really a faith, it is a fear. We feign faith in order to keep from being punished. We believe in an uncertain way only from fear of hell, and so our “faith” is without love and self-serving, a mere survival instinct. [Read More...]

“Hellbound?” opens today in LA, OC, San Diego and Grand Rapids!
