Comment Email Print
Movie still: Paul Bettany and Martha West as Darwin and his daughter
A range of free resources for use in Christian educational ministry are included on the movie Creation,  released this week on DVD.

Three leading academics with contrasting views discuss issues raised in the film. Other features include seven short clips, 'Digging Deeper into Darwin', by author Nick Spencer.

"This is the first time our resources have been endorsed and made   available on a secular DVD release," said Nick Pollard, founder of Christian educational charity the Damaris Trust. "We published them   online when Creation went on general release. We are delighted that Icon, the film's distributors, saw value in schools and church groups  discussing issues raised in this excellent film - the existence of a creator God, evolution, humanity, suffering and faith."

The three scientists featured are Dr Denis Alexander, a theistic  evolutionist and director of the Faraday Institute for Science and   Religion at St Edmunds College, Cambridge; Prof. Andy McIntosh, professor of thermodynamics and combustion theory at the University   of Leeds, a young earth creationist speaking in a personal capacity;   Prof Lewis Wolpert, a developmental biologist at University College,   London. He represents the views of atheists/humanists.

Creation dramatises Charles Darwin's attempts to reconcile his theory about the origin of species with love for his devout Christian wife - and the impact of his 10-year-old daughter's death on belief in a  benign deity.
