A recently released documentary, titled “The God Who Speaks,” seeks to fill a void on apologetics movies, according to its director.
Released by the conservative group the American Family Association’s American Family Studios on Feb. 1, “The God Who Speaks” interviews several scholars and apologists arguing in favor of the trustworthiness of the Bible.
M.D. Perkins, the director who also co-produced the project, told The Christian Post on Thursday that he believed his film was one of the few examples of an evangelical apologetics documentary on this issue.
“It’s distinct in that it’s a documentary. It’s a visual film. I really haven’t seen any films, any film documentaries that have tried to tackle this topic particularly from the evangelical Christian point of view,” explained Perkins.
“We’ve seen plenty of National Geographic specials and Discovery Channel and everyone kind of has. It’s always from that skeptical point of view and most of the apologetics work tends to be in writing or in lecture form.”
Perkins noted that he and his production “really couldn’t find any resources out there that said exactly what we’re trying to do,” adding that as a result “we thought maybe we should go for it.”
“At some point it was decided that we really needed to focus on a big project that was able to go back and check on and talk about what it meant for the Bible to be the Word of God,” he explained.
The 90-minute documentary is centered on answering common objections about the Bible’s reliability and looks at its origins and authenticity. Amid what filmmakers believe is “a battle for truth” and as many “have lost confidence in the Bible’s divine authorship,” the film aims to “equip believers to confidently base their lives on the power of God’s Word.”
