This award-winning documentary combines real-life cinematography, animation, and special effects. Presents a well-researched concept of what the geography and climate of the earth was probably like prior to the worldwide flood-judgment of Noah’s day. The producer’s use of a wide range of visuals adds entertainment value to the film which includes: a reenactment of Noah building the ark, the ark on the stormy sea, the 35,000 animal/passengers housed in their cages and stalls on board the ark, erupting volcanoes, modern-day search teams looking for remains of Noah’s ark on Mr. Ararat, etc.
It documents flood legends from tribes all around the world which are very similar to the actual scriptural record found in Genesis. This near timeless film is an excellent apologetic for the accuracy and trustworthiness of the first eleven chapters of Genesis. Viewers will marvel at many of the faith-strengthening evidences presented. Excellent evangelistic conclusion. This is a staple film for church and Christian school libraries. Don’t miss it!
