“We had always hoped that those in the political and faith communities would see the value in the messages that we are offering in ‘The Genesis Code’” said executive in charge of production Reverend Jerry Zandstra. “The overwhelming response in each of these cities by political and faith leaders demonstrates the continued demand for relevant, high-quality films such as ‘The Genesis Code.’ We are honored to have such an outpouring of support.”
“The Genesis Code” is an independent Christian film which explores the intersection of science and faith as well as other issues facing Christians today. The film stars Logan Bartholomew and Kelsey Sanders as college students whose chance meeting leads to a burgeoning relationship and a journey of spiritual discovery. The supporting cast includes Oscar-winners Louise Fletcher and Ernest Borgnine, former presidential candidate Fred Thompson, and Reverend Jerry Zandstra, who also served as the executive in charge of production.
“The Genesis Code” explores three major issues facing Christians today. One issue is the alleged conflict between religious and scientific explanations for the beginning of the universe. As the film shows, this conflict does not exist. The Biblical and scientific explanations for the beginning of life are totally consistent, but told from different perspectives. The film also explores the often ignored story of discrimination against Christians on college campuses. In the film, Kelsey Sanders portrays a talented paleontology student who is pressured to conceal her faith in order to advance in the academic world. Finally, the film deals with end-of-life issues, as Logan Bartholomew’s character fights to prolong the life of his comatose mother when his grandparents attempt to remove her from life support against his wishes and despite the possibility of recovery.
