‘Is Genesis History’ Documentary screens tonight

In the exciting new documentary, IS GENESIS HISTORY?, Dr. Del Tackett leads audiences on a remarkable journey through evidence from renowned scientists and Bible scholars that supports historic claims in the Book of Genesis.

In movie theaters for one night: Thursday, February 23, at 7 p.m. local time. Tickets for “Is Genesis History?” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 500 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

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.

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.
