The Book of Genesis

DVD Release: March 1, 2016
The Book of Genesis


Based on the first book of the Bible, Genesis is a sweeping and poetic look at the beginning of man’s relationship with God. While Jochebed hides in a shelter to protect her son from being murdered, she tells him the story of her people over the course of a dangerous night. This inspiring movie explores the idea that mankind will one day return to the place where we started, but that the journey will be filled with hardship, beauty, and a desperate need to trust the Creator.

Dove Review

“Genesis” is a powerful dramatic telling of the first book of the Holy Bible. It begins with the creation of Adam and Eve and shows their first experiences as they enjoy the nature of the new world in which they have arrived. Adam takes deep breaths and enjoys the water. A voice-over says that God wants to bring us back to Him, following the fall of man. Other biblical stories are mentioned or acted out, including Cain and Abel, Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and his ladder, Noah’s ark, Joseph’s story, and Abraham’s near sacrifice of Isaac.

This biblical dramatization of the book of Genesis offers a lot of food for thought. We are pleased to award it our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12-plus.
