The DVD begins with Kirk telling the story of a 15 year old family friend who passed away recently. Then Kirk talks about mankind's first experiences with sin and suffering. Stories from the Bible that are touched on include: creation, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, the flood, the tower of Babel and Abraham.
What I liked least about the movie is the artistic license that was taken with the story of Adam and Eve. First, the graphic image of the rib being removed from Adam was over the top in my opinion. Second, the serpent was depicted as a man with a skin condition. And third, when Adam and Eve are hiding from God, Adam turns and growls -- presumably at God who is about to find him.
I always thought that God supernaturally removed Adam's rib with no surgery required and no blood as a byproduct (this was pre-fall after all). I always pictured the serpent as... well... a serpent (but with legs). And my understanding is that Adam was afraid and ashamed -- not angry. These three issues alone are enough that I would not want to show this movie to my children or to unsaved friends of family.
There are some music choices (heavy metal/dissonant style) that I didn't love, but I'm sure someone else may think they're great.
What I liked most of all is the metaphor of the rainbow as a bow (a weapon) in the sky. Kirk was suggesting that the bow points up into the sky referring to the day on the cross when God's judgement and wrath would come to Him instead of to mankind.
Another thought provoking part of the DVD is God's promise to Adam and Eve that one of Eve's descendants would crush the serpent's head and how this was fulfilled in Christ's death and resurrection. Jesus was able to protect His bride (the church) in a way that Adam hadn't.
The song "The Time is Now" by Warren Barfield was a highlight of the DVD. And, of course, the moral of the DVD is something that I agree with -- God continually demonstrates his love and mercy for mankind.
I'm not sure who the intended audience is for the DVD, but I would suggest it only for adult Christians who are firm enough in their faith that they can overlook the artistic licenses taken.
