Matthew Arnold, Steve Ray, Scott & Kimberly Hahn, Fr. William Casey, Fr. Shannon Collins, Tim Staples -- (DVD)
Has Hell gone out of fashion? Is it really the fiery fate of unrepentant sinners, or has this once-daunting doctrine become an embarrassment to Christians in the modern world? Many of today's religious leaders seem unwilling or unable to conceive of a loving and merciful God visiting anyone with perpetual punishment. But the question remains, "What must Catholics believe about hell?" Is it a physical place or merely a "state of being?" How does the Church reconcile eternity in flames with an all-merciful God? And, if there really is a Hell, who goes there and why?
