DVD Review and Giveaway: The Genesis Code


About the Movie:
Kerry Wells (Kelsey Sanders), a college journalist and committed Christian with an effervescent personality, has been assigned to do a story on Blake Truman (Logan Bartholomew) the college’s newest and very popular hockey superstar. As a relationship between them begins to develop Kerry finds that Blake, who hides behind a tough and independent façade, is actually struggling through a difficult personal crisis and that he bears the cross of a secret he has kept hidden for years. Blake rebuffs Kerry's suggestion that prayer might help ease his burden; he is convinced that modern science completely disproves the Bible, especially the opening verses of Genesis. Kerry — who is herself suddenly confronted with a challenge to her faith on another front — sets out to prove that science and Genesis are not in conflict and her quest leads to a startling revelation. Could it be that what science teaches us about creation and the Story as told in Genesis are both true!

My Review:
This movie is interesting and aims to help people see that creation in Genesis is a fact, not fiction. However, I do not think they need to try so hard to make the Bible fit into science. I don't see the need to reconcile the two. The Bible is God's Word, the ultimate truth and authority! Science can easily be wrong as we see many times when new discoveries are made. 6 days or billions of years? The movie proposes that it depends on which frame of reference. It suggests that both are right and the Big Bang theory is supported. It explains that time is determined by speed, gravity, and stretch of space. Anyway, the acting is good and a song sung in the karaoke scene ("Soldier's King") is really nice. Besides alcohol drinking, immodest clothing (in 1 scene), and kissing, it's a clean family movie (rated PG). And if you're a science lover, you may enjoy this movie :).
