Many Christian families feel the pressure of living in a culture that embraces an evolutionary view of the world. It’s prominent in films, school textbooks, popular novels, and online videos. Parents and teachers know it’s a view that undermines the authority of the Bible, but many struggle to explain these complex topics to their children and students.
That’s the purpose of IS GENESIS HISTORY? The movie explores the questions parents, teachers, and students are asking about Genesis, examines the problems with the evolutionary view, and then presents the positive case for Creation and the Flood.
This documentary had its start with a student. After a discussion with his daughter, the director decided to make a documentary to answer the questions she was asking. He knew it was important to understand there are good reasons for accepting the events recorded in the Bible as real.
Del Tackett also has a long history of teaching students. He knows how to make complex ideas simple, and he is the perfect guide through a maze of topics. His clarity of thinking and honest manner are perfect for engaging students at all levels.
IS GENESIS HISTORY? is not your average documentary. It presents an enormous amount of information in a logical, evidence-based manner. Viewers go on location with scientists to hear them explain what they see in light of their research. Filled with visual aids and illustrations, the film provides a complete framework for understanding the two competing views on the history of the world.
IS GENESIS HISTORY? is an educational experience that will pique the curiosity and interest of your students age 12 and up. A one-night event in theaters on Thursday, February 23, the movie is the perfect field trip for co-ops, tutorials, support groups, enrichment programs, and many other school and homeschool groups.
After the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring Del and a handful of scientists talking about particular issues facing students. The film, combined with the panel discussion, will expand and reinforce the lessons taught in science, history, and Bible.
