Posted in Event, Saskatoon with tags , on October 20, 2012 by saskskeptic

The documentary film, Hellbound? opens tonight in Saskatoon (see theatre).

There will be a panel discussion after the Monday night (Oct 22) screening with the film maker, Kevin Miller, with James Brayshaw of “there is no Satan” fame, and Philosopher George Williamson.
Synopsis
Does hell exist? If so, who ends up there, and why? Featuring an eclectic group of authors, theologians, pastors, social commentators and musicians, “Hellbound?” is a provocative, feature-length documentary that will ensure you never look at hell the same way again!
