The New York Times and The Christian Post VS. Christianity Today on “Hellbound?”

The New York Times and The Christian Post VS. Christianity Today on “Hellbound?” September 22, 2012

Here are 3 reviews/stories about the movie Hellbound? Did the editors of Christianity Today see a different movie?

 

 

New York Times

“The number of documentaries about theological debates is fairly small, and the number of such films that manage to sustain interest is even smaller. Kevin Miller’s ‘Hellbound?‘ makes both lists.”

 

The Christian Post

“There is ample time given in ‘Hellbound?’ to the opinion that ‘evangelical extremists’ perhaps peddle hell out of fear – not of fear that those rejecting Christ could find themselves in a literal, eternal place of torment, but of the possibility that this weapon of mass manipulation (or so it is presented) convincingly challenged or dismantled might rock their very sense of being and strip these Christians of influence, and their jobs.”

 

Christianity Today

“This is the set-up for a documentary on hell. One can only sigh. The foolishness does not end there.”
