Was the universe designed or is it a product of random chance? Where did life come from? What is man? What do fossils reveal about the history of life on Earth? Is Grand Canyon the result of a great worldwide flood? How old is Earth? Did dinosaurs really die off before humans existed? Were there many ice ages or just one? Where did the Neandertals come from? Did the universe start with a Big Bang? Can we believe what the Bible says about science?
These are just some of the questions that we address in our new DVD series Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis. At some point in our lives, we’ve all heard the controversies—and likely wondered about them ourselves—and it’s not always easy to explain what we believe about these issues. One of our goals here at ICR is to provide you with ready answers for the challenges you may face about the Bible’s accuracy in light of scientific discoveries. Science and Scripture reveal the same truth, and we want to share that truth with you.
This series comes as a 12-DVD set, accompanied by a viewer guide with notes, discussion questions, and suggested resources. (Additional guides are sold separately, with discounts for bundles of 10.) With individual sections coinciding with each episode, this tool is excellent for generating small-group discussions and further equipping viewers to defend a biblical worldview within the context of science:
One of the most controversial questions in all of science centers on where humans came from. Did we evolve from the animal kingdom, or did God create us uniquely to hold stewardship over the earth? Fascinating new evidence from genetic and medical research indicates we’ve been misguided by 150 years of evolutionary theory and teaching. (Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis Viewer Guide, page 25)
Exactly how much have we been misled? The viewer guide points out what evolution says and contrasts it with solid science and creation truth. Filled with beautiful full-color images, key points, and scriptural references, the guide will challenge you to consider some of the biggest problems with evolutionary thinking and to examine the compelling answers from Scripture.
Many of you have already received your sets, and we’re eager to hear how you are using Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis to answer difficult questions, solidify your faith, and share with others the fascinating facts and scientific findings that confirm what we see in Scripture. “Such findings increase our confidence in the truth of God’s Word and provide powerful evidence to share” (Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis Viewer Guide, page 107). Won’t you join us in taking these answers to an ever-questioning world?
