About the Movie:
Kerry Wells (Kelsey Sanders), a college journalist and committed Christian with an effervescent personality, has been assigned to do a story on Blake Truman (Logan Bartholomew) the college’s newest and very popular hockey superstar. As a relationship between them begins to develop Kerry finds that Blake, who hides behind a tough and independent façade, is actually struggling through a difficult personal crisis and that he bears the cross of a secret he has kept hidden for years. Blake rebuffs Kerry's suggestion that prayer might help ease his burden; he is convinced that modern science completely disproves the Bible, especially the opening verses of Genesis. Kerry — who is herself suddenly confronted with a challenge to her faith on another front — sets out to prove that science and Genesis are not in conflict and her quest leads to a startling revelation. Could it be that what science teaches us about creation and the Story as told in Genesis are both true!
My Thoughts: This movie was very heartfelt and full of amazing information. I am not an entirely scientific or mathematical person, but my husband is. I did understand and enjoy the way that they put together the proof of modern science proving Genesis is true. I also found it really interesting that Genesis could be what holds people back from believing the Bible. That is not a thought that had ever occurred to me.
Kerry and Blake had a great budding relationship through out the movie. The were total opposites, but the overcame that. I also liked how readily Kerry was there for Blake during his struggles. In fact so was her dad and one of her professors. It was really good to see.
The characters in The Genesis Code are great, and relate-able. I think this movie will be great for Christians. This may also be a great movie for those people who are on the fence, trying to understand how both Science and the Bible can be right. The Genesis Code shows an entirely plausible way for that to happen.
