{Review} Is Genesis History? (DVD) plus Giveaway!

Oftentimes people dismiss the Bible as an old-fashioned book which no longer applies to our lives today. After all, it was written thousands of years ago. How can it be accurate let alone pertain to anything we have going on today?

Is Genesis History? is a documentary that looks at the first book of the Bible through a scientific lens before a biblical lens. Can what is shared in Genesis be shown to be true through a scientific view of the world? Does what we see in the world today show up in the Bible? 

Over a dozen scholars and scientists were involved in this film to help explain how science and Genesis interact. Host Dr. Del Tackett takes us all across the globe as he looks at this very issue. 

We learn about how rock layers are formed and what they tell us about the formation of our earth and how this impacts our knowledge of fossils and age dating. This is a documentary that packs that plus whole a lot more information into the 118 minute run time. 

If you go to the website Is Genesis History?, you will also find oodles of more information from a six video Bible study to five things to do once you have viewed the film which includes a summary of the film with key takeaways. There are also links to learn not only more about the film and the experts but also the fossils and more. 

There was a one night run of this film at 700 theaters nationwide back in February. It did so well that there were two encore performances in March. You can see links to where you can purchase your own copy of the video by clicking HERE to see a list of retailers or you can enter my giveaway to win your own copy of the DVD. 

My husband watches a lot of videos that discuss creation. While he isn't an expert, he knows quite a bit about it based on his research. I knew he would enjoy this film. While I had already viewed it, we watched it again together. His take was that he knew quite a bit of what was already shared. However, there were some aspects of it that, in his words, "blew his mind." The experts that speak really are at the top of their field. They not only have the head knowledge, but they all have a great way of explaining what they know in such a way that makes it understandable.

  1. Birds. I love watching birds. They have knowledge of the seasons that God gave them - they know when to leave, when to come back, where to go- and to watch them soar makes me so jealous of their freedom

  2. I enjoy God's Majestic Creations of all living... I do though prefer being outdoors, planting or just watching the birds or butterflies. :)

  3. I love seeing the variety and patterns of God's creation. Thank you for the chance to win!

  4. Congrats to Nicki on winning the DVD! :-)


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
