The Genesis Code {Movie Review}

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

My daughter and I sat down together to watch The Genesis Code. The movie depicts how God can intertwine relationships on this Earth to help people figure out that He is real. The relationship between Kelsey and Blake was a bit awkward to me at times. Kelsey, who is depicted as a strong Christian, seems a bit too flirtatious while trying to lead someone towards purity. Other than that, I really do think that the movie captures the essence of one of the largest debates throughout history: Is God real? Not only does it capture this debate, but gives some great insight into how both science and God can and do coexist. It was a good film that provoked some discussion between my daughter and I at the end of the night and kept our attention the whole way through.
