When you see five-star ratings you never know for sure if a product is worthy of it, or if it's just a case of an enthusiastic devotee. It's true that I am a Christian and am unashamedly passionate about God and about His awesome creation. But I have seen quite a number of Christian DVDs, of varying quality, and can honestly say that this is one of the best. Its quality is in the script, the choice of interviewees, the filming, the production, the music, and the overall message.
Many voices today are robbing God of His rightful glory, falsely attributing the astounding complexity and wonder of life to the mindless, random processes of evolution. This DVD is thoroughly refreshing, as it stands firmly against this tide of humanism and atheism.
Furthermore, in combining truly fascinating and educational information with praise of God, "God of Wonders" rightly dispels the myth of the supposed dichotomy between science and 'religion'. The Bible doesn't recognise such a dichotomy--in fact you won't find the word 'religion' in any of the main English translations of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament). The Bible gives a complete and integral worldview, touching upon science, history, wisdom, etc, as well as all things relating to the spiritual dimension.
'God of Wonders' reflects that sense of wholeness, by interweaving amazing facts, stunning beauty, and constant reference to the Bible. "God of Wonders" is, for the Christian at least, an educational and thrilling viewing experience!
And for any genuinely open-minded enquirer, it provides compelling answers to some of mankind's deepest questions: about our origins; about the astonishing complexity, order, and beauty in life; about suffering and why creation is spoiled; about conscience and the knowledge of right and wrong; and about God's compassionate, sacrificial, and loving offer of redemption to mankind.
