Ever have a life changing experience?
If you have had a child, dollars to donuts, you know the meaning of life changing events. Becoming a parent can cause many to completely change the course of their life. That is what happened to filmmaker Nolan Lebovitz.
Mr. Lebovitz grew up in the Chicago area, where he was taught about Genesis as a child. His family instilled values based on the Bible in his life. Then he grew up, moved to Hollywood and veered away from those teachings. He began making suspense thriller movies.
After he had a child and became a parent, his outlook about his entire life changed. He looked at the films he made, and asked himself if doing those was making the world a better place for his children. He also took a good look at the world in general, and saw that it was a much different environment than the one he had grown up in. He found it to be a much meaner and less caring place to live.
In the past, the Judeo-Christian world view had been such a common part of everyday society that Shakespeare, Chaucer and Melville often included Biblical references in their works. If those same references were made in today’s literature, many reader’s wouldn’t have a clue what they were referring to.
Recalling his own upbringing, the filmmaker decided what is missing from today’s world is the religious heritage and values he received as a child. He also wanted to provide that type of foundation for his own children. With that thought he read the book of Genesis, and discovered it offers answers to lots of questions plaguing society today.
That knowledge spurred him to turn away from making the types of movies he has made in the past, and make this one, Roadmap Genesis, devoted to the first book of the Bible.
“Am I my brother’s keeper?” This question has echoed through the ages, and originates from the book of Genesis. If we are, what are we doing about it?
Genesis states we are all descended from the same common parents, Adam and Eve. If that is true, how can racial hatred or prejudice ever be justified?
Join the filmmaker on a journey of discovery – building the case that the Book of Genesis contains the guidance we need to help our society lift itself out of its current decline and return it to prosperity, promise, and accomplishment.
This movie will make you think, wonder what Genesis has to say, and want to read the book yourself. Does it stand the test of time, and answer all those questions? I, for one, am going to find out.
While I’m re-reading the book, I am happy to say I will also be giving away a DVD copy of this movie, Roadmap Genesis.
