(Rock Rapids, IA) – While hiding to protect her infant son from being murdered, a mother tells the story of her people and the beginning of the world in The Book of Genesis, a new DVD available from Bridgestone Multimedia Group.
Based on the first book of the Bible, The Book of Genesis is a sweeping and poetic look at the beginning of man’s relationship with God. Interweaving the stories of patriarchs like Adam, Abraham, Noah, and Jacob as if their lives were lived simultaneously, this inspiring movie explores the common thread of how those characters interacted with God and how mankind will one day return to the place where we started. However, the journey back to Eden will be filled with hardship, beauty, and a desperate need to trust the Creator.
“The Book of Genesis is a powerful dramatic telling of the first book of the Holy Bible,” wrote Edwin L. Carpenter in his review for the Dove Foundation. “It begins with the creation of Adam and Eve and shows their first experiences as they enjoy the nature of the new world in which they have arrived. This biblical dramatization of the book of Genesis offers a lot of food for thought.”
Starring Venus Monique, Cabil Gibbs, Jordan Jones, Olivia Jordan, Avery Merrifield, Mitchell Rad, and Jeremy Marr Williams, The Book of Genesis is currently on sale for $10.99 from Bridgestone Multimedia Group through the Christianbook Group.

“1500 Steps is a film that inspires,” wrote Edwin L. Carpenter in his review for The Dove Foundation. “It shows that life is a marathon, not a sprint, and if one stumbles during the race it is important to remember that finishing well is the key to ultimate triumph.”
The Dove Foundation also praised the high school drama for tackling difficult topics in a realistic way. The film includes a free Bible study to help viewers discuss these issues.
“This movie speaks to the heartache of alcohol and drug abuse and shows that people too often place a period in their lives when God has instead placed a comma, allowing more of the story to follow,” wrote Carpenter.
