The Reality of Noah's Ark

The Reality of Noah's Ark

Throughout history, Noah's Ark and the Global Flood have been the focus of famous artwork, scholarly discussions, written works, and public dramatizations. While some have accurately upheld the Genesis account, many more have distorted and abused the facts.

In order to distinguish the truth about Noah's Ark, Branyon May (Ph.D.) plainly addresses the facts in this Christian documentary and clearly demonstrates "The Reality of Noah's Ark" with stunning visuals and concrete examples that will strengthen your faith.

Corrie Ten Boom: A Faith Undefeated

Corrie Ten Boom

“Corrie Ten Boom: A Faith Undefeated” is one of the best Christian documentaries in our list — one that offers a lens into the lives of one of World War II’s heroes. Struggling to reconcile God’s goodness with the terrible realities of the Nazi camps, Corrie and her sister, Betsie, desperately clung to their Christian faith.

This is one of the more unique religious documentaries, as it details Corrie's story; she and her family were arrested by the Nazis for hiding Jews in their home. Her sister died in a concentration camp, though Corrie was eventually released. She later founded a post-war home for survivors and went on to preach about forgiveness. It’s a religious documentary you won’t want to miss.
