Explore the Grand Canyon with Noah Justice (DVD)
A Young-earth look at the Grand Canyon.
My family received this DVD from New Leaf Publishing group in order to review it. My children (11, 9, and 7) were excited to get to see it--so we watched it right away :)
The DVD is basically a child (Noah Justice) giving a lesson on the Grand Canyon and it's probable formation via the Biblical Flood, while showing scenes from the Grand Canyon and models of its formation. We have watched different documentaries on the Grand Canyon before and although this one isn't as "professionally" made as say, something like National Geographic, it was a great look at it from a non-evolutionary viewpoint. Our family subscribes to the young-earth theory of the earth, so it was a good fit for us. We enjoyed seeing the scenes and hearing how the different layers could have been formed.
I think my only issue with the DVD was that the boy spoke a litle too fast without very good enunciation. Some things zipped right past us without us understanding what he was saying. There is a study guide with "quizzes" which accompanies the DVD--I think we'll have to watch the movie a few times to get all the answers, since there's so much information given very quickly. I wish the study guide had included more printed information
I would recommend this movie for people who believe in Biblical creation and a young earth. It's a good concise look at how the Grand Canyon (and all of its layers, etc) were possibly formed.
I received a free copy of this DVD and study guide from New Leaf Publishing Group for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
