FILM&Theology: IS GENESIS HISTORY?

A very special film night:

Dr. Del Tackett treks the globe to meet with top scientists and scholars and asks the questions surrounding the most controversial book of the Bible that everyone is curious about: Was everything created in six days? Did we evolve from apes? Were Adam and Eve real? Was there a global flood? What happened to the dinosaurs? Was there a tower of Babel? This first-of-its-kind documentary also features a special panel discussion on the importance of Genesis to our faith today.

Pastor James Harleman hosts the website Cinemagogue, but also holds monthly film viewings at Refuge Church and unpacks the film’s narrative themes afterward with a brief message. This film, however, is special in that it’s a documentary that already raises the questions and makes the points for us. A brief Q&A will follow.

About Film & Theology:
Cinema is a modern day pulpit, reinforcing ideas through narrative about what it means to be a hero, a villain, living in this world today or living in a fantasy world that reflects our issues through metaphor and allegorical parallels. Instead of avoiding secular culture and the stories in popular entertainment, we believe we should engage them head-on in a way that lets us enjoy ALL experiences as worship, connected to our growth in God and loving the world around us.
