This is an excerpt from my latest blog post on The Huffington Post religion channel:

If I set out to have a really frustrating day, I might try to open a conversation on the concept of hell with a group of North American evangelicals.

Canadian filmmaker Kevin Miller makes that sound easy. Possibly the most hopeful Christian I have encountered in my work, recently Miller gently applied his magical movie-making potion to the slammed door of damnation. Will he be able to ease it open?

Last week, I had a chance to interview Miller about his latest film, “Hellbound?” which is due out in theaters this fall. It focuses on the range of primary Christian perspectives of hell. Surprising to many Western Christians, there are actually a number of Christian theological representations of the concept of hell, although in our part of the world the one we hear most about is “eternal damnation.”
