‘Roadmap Genesis’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
Roadmap Genesis is a film documentary that makes the case that the Book of Genesis is a roadmap containing guideposts on how to live a productive, fruitful, and fulfilling life that will help our society lift itself out of its current decline and return it to prosperity, promise, and accomplishment.
When Filmmaker Nolan Lebovitz found himself at a crossroads in his life, he knew he had to choose between continuing to make the Hollywood suspense thrillers that were his livelihood and trying to make the world a better place for his new young family. After much struggle, he found his answer in the Book of Genesis.
Armed with this discovery, Nolan made a drastic life change. He decided to study to become a Rabbi. As his seminary work progressed, he realized that he needed to share his epiphany with others. But how? He decided to combine his love of the Book of Genesis with his passion for filmmaking and set out to travel the United States, interviewing clergy and public figures in order to build an undeniable argument about the continued importance of the Book of Genesis as a guiding force in our Judeo-Christian country.
Roadmap Genesis invites Americans of all faiths to engage in a dialogue about the relevance of the Bible in the modern age. Through interviews ranging from Gov. Mike Huckabee of Fox News Channel to Rabbi David Wolpe, from Alan Dershowitz to the Archbishop of Chicago Cardinal Francis George, from Erick Stakelbeck of the Christian Broadcasting Network to Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, and many, many more, Nolan explores the rules that God has set forth to help us maintain a successful and working society.
This filmmaker asked a great question at the beginning of this documentary that every filmmaker should ask themselves whether they believe in God or not. Here were some highlights for this documentary:
- Genesis has the answers to all of life’s questions. It is the true roadmap and the foundation to all Scripture.
- Loved the Star Wars section with the changes – brilliant.
- Some humor throughout which was great.
- Interesting information about the word Barah (not sure of the spelling) – it refers to when God creates, vs. when man creates.
- That sad fact that we’ve stopped caring about our planet and each other.
- Racism is address here too. We are all 1 race. God loves us and created us all. We are all one big family.
- God desires us to constantly grow. He challenges us.
- God is not limited and is available to all of us.
- We can become cynical or we can be motivated to do something and care about this planet and others.
I truly hope this filmmaker decides to make a movie about his life’s journey. Very interesting. We are all called to stand in the face of injustice and unrighteousness.
