GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 16, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — The highly anticipated Christian film “The Genesis Code” is now available at Christian retailers throughout the United States and Canada. It is also available online at www.thegenesiscodemovie.com.
Former U.S. Senator and actor Fred Thompson stars in “The Genesis Code” and calls the film “thought-provoking” and is telling his fans that they will enjoy the movie.
The film from American Epic Entertainment, calls Christians to renew their faith in God, become more engaged in publicly defending the Biblical explanation of creation and speaking up against the cultural trend to silence Christians.
“I’m very excited to have the DVD available” said Executive Producer and star of The Genesis Code, Reverend Jerry Zandstra. “The foundations of conservative family values are being attacked on all fronts. Our hope would be that after viewing the film, families, teachers, pastors and students alike would find their voice to confront the forces that work to silence conservatives in areas like science, creation and life issues,” commented Zandstra.
“The Genesis Code” is an independent faith-based film which explores the intersection of science and faith as well as other issues facing Christians today. The film stars Logan Bartholomew and Kelsey Sanders as college students whose chance meeting leads to a burgeoning relationship and a journey of spiritual discovery. The supporting cast includes Oscar-winners Louise Fletcher and Ernest Borgnine, former presidential candidate Fred Thompson, and Reverend Jerry Zandstra, who also served as the Executive Producer.
“The Genesis Code” explores three major issues facing Christians today. One issue is the alleged conflict between religious and scientific explanations for the beginning of the universe. The film also explores the often ignored story of discrimination against Christians on college campuses. Finally, the film deals with end-of-life issues, as Logan Bartholomew’s character fights to prolong the life of his comatose mother when his grandparents attempt to remove her from life support against his wishes and despite the possibility of recovery.
