ONE NIGHT EVENT—THURSDAY, FEB. 23
‘IS GENESIS HISTORY?’ DOCUMENTARY
TAKES ON OUR BIGGEST QUESTIONS
WHAT In the enlightening new documentary, IS GENESIS HISTORY?, Dr. Del Tackett leads audiences on a remarkable journey through evidence supporting historic claims in the Book of Genesis with renowned scientists and Bible scholars.
WHO Featuring host Dr. Del Tackett, creator of The Truth Project, IS GENESIS HISTORY?, from Compass Cinema, is produced and directed by Thomas Purifoy, Jr.
WHEN In cinemas for one night Thursday, February 23, at 7 p.m. local time, from Fathom Events.
SYNOPSIS Traveling across the continent, Dr. Del Tackett talks to experts in geology, biology, astronomy, archaeology, the Bible and more—seeking answers to centuries-long questions surrounding the book of Genesis:
- Was the universe created in six literal days?
- Did humans evolve?
- Were Adam and Eve real?
- Was there a global flood?
- What happened to the dinosaurs?
From immense available evidence about our origins, two histories arise. But which is correct? IS GENESIS HISTORY? presents a positive, evidenced-based case for the Bible’s historical reliability.
TOO MUCH ‘US V. THEM’? ANOTHER CONVERSATION IS POSSIBLE
On both sides, discussions of life’s origins quickly turn negative. In the
exciting new documentary, IS GENESIS HISTORY?, Director Thomas
Purifoy, Jr. takes another road, laying out conversational, understandable
specifics for the Book of Genesis as history. Ask Purifoy and Dr. Del Tackett
about the importance of history in this debate, especially as it relates to the Bible and science.
FROM A 10-YEAR-OLD’S QUESTIONS TO A FEATURE DOCUMENTARY
Seeing his 10-year-old daughter lose certainty about the Bible’s historical reliability, filmmaker Thomas Purifoy, Jr. realized he couldn’t clearly explain his own beliefs. And from that “Ah ha” came this feature-length documentary. Ask Purifoy about the seminal conversation with his 10-year-old, and what he discovered in his search to understand how these issues relate to students.
HOW TO BUILD A CASE
The evidence isn’t new, but our ability to analyze and decipher it grows at the speed of technology. How do new data and new discoveries send us back for another perspective on longstanding evidence?
WHY IS GENESIS IMPORTANT TODAY?
A lot of Christians may wonder why Genesis matters to our lives. Is it really a big deal to think the earth is old, or that humans evolved? Ask Purifoy and Dr. Del Tackett about the importance of Genesis to our lives today.
