Homeschooling? Part of a church? Know some young people? You won’t want to miss this!
A few weeks ago I saw ICR’s invitation to preview a brand new series explaining creation for everyday people. I expected a nice, high quality video page (to see what I mean, check out That’s a Fact). They do indeed have one on the new site, but it was just the beginning.
Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis
is the title of the series. It’s designed to present to groups over 12 half hour (or less) sessions. Here’s the heart of what ICR is seeking:
“…to reach beyond our faithful constituency to the millions in evangelical churches who are unaware of the full extent of information revealed in the early chapters of Genesis. One of our goals is to guide the millennials to God’s Word and equip them with truth.”
You’ll enjoy reading the rest of the article, especially the behind the scenes photos along side.
Things really get exciting when you find out how they’re getting the word out. If you are a homeschooler or pastor, they’ll send you the first episode free. I signed up to check things out, plugged in my address, and a few days later a package with the DVD showed up in the mail.
Right after lunch today I sat down with my kids to see what the show was like. The whole thing took just under 22 minutes. Here are our thoughts:
5 year old, “It was silly.”
I spotted at least four points that made us laugh.
The footage and graphics are not just professional, they are stunning. I particularly enjoyed the fastforward overview of Creation Week.
8 year old, “I loved what he had to say about it. Especially how he showed the missing links in the hay.”
The host was great: warm, positive, with a great sense of timing.
My favorite bit was at the junkyard, too, but I’ll leave that and the “missing links” for you to discover yourself. 🙂
ICR has set up a website just for this series. The 12 part set will be available for purchase in May, 2014. You can go straight there to find out more, but….
It would be great if you’d comment below so I can add you to my referral list. As soon as I have three names/email addresses to send in I qualify for a 50% discount to purchase the whole series for myself. You’ll get notified nearly as fast anyway! Technically, you’re supposed to be homeschooling, too, but I don’t think ICR will mind if you’re a pastor since they have a whole section for them. 😀
Now present yourselves, that I may plead with you before the Lord concerning all the righteous acts of the Lord which He did for you and for your fathers. I Samuel 12:7
PS, I’m saving ICR a little money by passing on my DVD to my pastor. I have the feeling it’ll be just what he’s looking for.
