Last week, there was a special showing of Is Genesis History? in movie theaters. I became aware of it rather late so my ability to encourage people to watch it was quite limited. However, Kim and I did go and found it to be very well done in every way. If I had one complaint it would be that they tried to cover too much in the two hours. But, in reality, it also caused me to realize that there are several avenues of further study that I can now pursue.
All of this to say, the response was quite good for the movie and the producers are going to have two more presentations of it in early March. I would like to strongly urge you to consider watching this movie. It is rather vogue right now in the Church to dismiss the early chapters (1-11) as something less than historical or true and its effects is felt even in Missio Dei Fellowship. Regardless of your position on these early chapters, it is worth your time and mind to go and watch it. You can go to their site to find a theater near you.
One point to consider, they encourage only those twelve and older to watch the show. I would say that unless your twelve year old is used to thinking and listening carefully on more technical issues that you raise that age to around fifteen or sixteen. There is a lot of data given and a lot of points made so don’t think this is just entertainment. It is a shot across the bow of the teachings that abound in our schools and, sadly, even in our churches.
