Abraham Footprints DVD Premier Showings

by Steve Ray on March 20, 2015

Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist

Abraham, Father of Faith & Works is now for sale

We have had a great time this week showing it to very different audiences — and to rousing applause and rave reviews. 

First, we showed it to the wonderful Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist at their convent in Ann Arbor Michigan. I was fun to watch the Sisters watch the movie. They are so delightful, fun, free and happy in the Lord. They laughed at all the right places and thanked us for sharing it with them.

Thanks to Mother Assumpta Long and Sister Joseph Andrew and Sister Gemma for inviting and arranging the special showing in their theatre.

Independence Village of Plymouth Michigan

Last night we showed the movie again to an alert and excited group of seniors at my mother’s Assisted Living Retirement home in Plymouth Michigan. Lots of people from local churches and family members joined us.

My mother was so proud that her little boy had become a Bible teacher and movie maker to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. I thanked her publicly for the way she raised me and for her unflappable faith in Jesus Christ and the Scriptures.

She raised me from the beginner to love Jesus and the Bible and at 93 years old she was delighted to sit with her friends and family and see the results of her efforts. Thanks Mom!

My family all came to see the movie for the first time too. We celebrated with champaign after the showing — thanks Bob and Myra!

This movie is full of apologetics, biblical history, humor along with beautiful video footage and artwork.

Great for families, parishes, schools and Bible studies. Enjoy. Thank you Lord for all your goodness, for your plan of salvation and for letting me share it with the world.

Finalizing My Book on Genesis…Here are a Few Favorite Paragraphs about Creation

July 5, 2014

Here are a few paragraphs from my new book on Genesis which is nearly done. Genesis 2:7 is foundational and crucial to the whole story of the cosmos, Man and salvation.

Interesting Insights While Working on Abraham Script: Tent vs. Altar, Jews Sent Back to Square One

March 31, 2014

Two things struck me today as I am feverishly writing the script for our upcoming Abraham DVD (Footprints of God series). First, when God punished the Jews by sending them into exile in Babylon it was the ultimate punishment and insult. Babylon was the site of Bable and the confusion of languages. It was also [...]
