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.
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 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

As a Christian who believes the validity of the whole Bible, I firmly believe that without Genesis the rest of the Bible would be invalid. Genesis is the beginning of humanity. The beginning of my faith and without it there is no point in ever having to have a savior. That said, I felt this documentary did an excellent job in showing how going back to the beginning and finding our roots and finding how God wanted man to be is very important.
Genesis is the beginning. It explains where we come from and why we are here. It lays out God’s plan for this world and how he wanted us to live. In fellowship with Him on a daily basis.
I think this is a good DVD and it will make you think about things: God, the world, relationships, etc. There was a bit of an “environmentalist” message when it turned to talking about stewarding the planet and taking care of it. However, it was not overly pushed.
This is not a “Christian” film. However, it is a film where both Jews and Christians talk about the importance of using Genesis as a roadmap back to peace and prosperity in our nation.
I honestly believe that it will take more than that. My personal belief is that we need to turn back to God as a whole and use the entire Bible as a roadmap and by doing that we can turn our nation around.
My opinion over all? I liked the film. It was made well, really focuses on how God’s word in Genesis can be used as a great tool to help our nation get back on the right track. I hope this film does very well.
