I know this is “Thriller Thursday,” but I’m taking a slight break from talking about thrillers to discuss another type of film – a documentary, which actually is kind of thrilling in and of itself. Call me crazy, but I’m a sucker for documentaries, and I really love the Book of Genesis (which has all sorts of thriller elements to it – check it out for yourself and see what I mean, and then take up the Roadmap Genesis Challenge – see below for more information on that).
By the way, the reason I’m taking over Thriller Thursday to talk about a documentary? I double-booked the Friday free-for-All promo spot this week, so I just decided to bump this one up a day. Also, this kind of counts as a “thriller” post since the documentary’s filmmaker is noted for some thrillers, like TORTURED.
Here’s some information about the film:
Run time – 1h 17m
Roadmap Genesis is a film documentary that makes the case that the Book of Genesis is a roadmap containing guideposts on how to live a productive, fruitful, and fulfilling life that will help our society lift itself out of its current decline and return it to prosperity, promise, and accomplishment.
When filmmaker Nolan Lebovitz found himself at a crossroads in his life, he knew he had to choose between continuing to make the Hollywood suspense thrillers that were his livelihood and trying to make the world a better place for his new young family. After much struggle, he found his answer in the Book of Genesis.
He decided to combine his love of the Book of Genesis with his passion for filmmaking and set out to travel the United States, interviewing clergy and public figures in order to build an undeniable argument about the continued importance of the Book of Genesis as guiding force in our Judeo-Christian country.
Roadmap Genesis invites Americans of all faiths to engage in a dialogue about the relevance of the Bible in the modern age. Through interviews ranging from Gov. Mike Huckabee of Fox News Channel to Rabbi David Wolpe, from Alan Dershowitz to the Archbishop of Chicago Cardinal Francis George, from Erick Stakelbeck of the Christian Broadcasting Network to Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, and many, many more, Nolan explores the rules that God has set forth to help us maintain a successful and working society.
