Abstract

[The film Hell and Mr. Fudge recounts the true story of Edward Fudge and his break with the traditionalist Christian doctrine of eternal torment. Through study, Fudge embraces the position that God does not torment people forever. This decision creates tremendous conflict for Fudge on a personal and ecclesiastical level. At one point during the film, Fudge is talking about his research on Hell and expresses concern at the opposition. Fudge shares that he has been asked to give an interview on his research. In response, the aged colleague warns Fudge to be careful and to understand that people are prone to hold on to the beliefs they have. This idea that people are more persuaded by the information they already have, rather than new information presented to them, illustrates the communication idea of resonance.]
