Is it possible that the first eleven chapters of Genesis literally happened? Did God create the world in a few days or did it take billions of years? Are we descended from apes? Or did God create us instantly in His image? Was there a global flood that destroyed the earth, or was that a myth? In other words - Is Genesis History?
These are just a few of the questions Dr. Del Tackett seeks to answer as he visits with geologists, paleontologists, microbiologists and more in this in-depth and utterly fascinating film.
I was thrilled when I found out Dr. Tackett was involved with this project because of his work on The Truth Project. That series was so interesting I took it twice when my church offered it! And in the process I came to trust this man who methodically and rationally leads his viewers to not only deeper understanding of the truth of God's Word, but how it applies to the world around us. This is what he, and all those involved in the Is Genesis History project have done and the results will leave you astounded.
It all comes down to two competing views of history. What is our true history? What actually happened?The conflict as Dr. Tackett points out, is not between two views of science, but between two competing views of history. One of the many topics covered is of course the story of the world-wide flood in Genesis six to eight. A reasonable question to ask is - if there was a world-wide flood wouldn't there be evidence of it? From there Dr. Tackett visits with Geologist Steve Austin, a scientist who had spent over four years studying this question. From there we are given a glorious view of the Grand Canyon and we get to the truth of whether or not a global flood actually occurred.
One of the Bible verses that kept going through my head while watching this film was 1 Corinthians 3:19, "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God..." because even when presented with hard evidence that proves there was a global flood or evolution, the scientific community refuse to acknowledge or see it. It boggles the mind.
Is Genesis History is one film you need to pick up. View it with your family. Use it in church, in your cell groups (definitely pick it up for your church library) and get out your Bibles because this documentary will get you excited and if you doubt that God exists it will take that doubt away.
