what people are saying

A delight to both the eyes and ears, BEHOLD THE EARTH captures the growing movement among churches to BE better stewards of the earth and HOLD up the wonderment of God's creation, now and for generations yet to come.- Matthew & Nancy Sleeth, Blessed Earth
BEHOLD THE EARTH is not merely a film, it is an experience... its luxurious pace invites you to not only observe the beauty of the Earth, but to truly behold it.- Kyle Meyaard-Schaap, Young Evangelicals for Climate Action
BEHOLD THE EARTH is very well done and presents a beautiful treatment on connecting people to nature. I particularly loved the way music was incorporated so thoughtfully — what a treat to experience a film that actually breathes.- Jenette Restivo, Children & Nature Network
BEHOLD THE EARTH is an invitation to slow down, tune out distractions, and for one hour consider the gift that is Creation itself.- Dr. Kathryn Applegate, BioLogos
BEHOLD THE EARTH is both a visual and musical introduction to God’s love for creation, and it is an invitation to Christians to turn their faith into the healing of our lands and communities.- Dr. Norman Wirzba, Professor of Theology and Ecology, Duke University Divinity School
This beautiful, and beautifully produced film reminds Christians that the very stones preach sermons of God's presence in creation and choirs of the creatures sing his praises.- Mark Stoll, author of 'Inherit the Holy Mountain: Religion and the Rise of American Environmentalism'

Behold the Earth

Could a journey into creation determine the future of the church?

Behold the Earth is a music-rich documentary film that explores America’s divorce from the outdoors through conversations with legendary scientists E.O. Wilson, Cal DeWitt, and Theo Colborn, as well as a new generation of creation-care activists within America’s largest religious group — Evangelicals. Katharine Hayhoe, Ben Lowe, and Corina Newsome are close observers of nature bearing witness to creation, asking tough questions about church engagement with environmental issues.

Learn More About the Film

Film Director and Conservationist David Conover boldly began this highly original film 12 years ago, as an inquiry into America’s divorce from the outdoors, before-and-after the arrival of those known as the digital natives. He is neither scientist nor evangelical. He draws upon some of the same talented field staff behind the spectacular natural sequences in his series Sunrise Earth and Big Picture Earth. Four time Grammy-award winning musician Dirk Powell leads the arrangements of traditional American tunes and hymns, with Rhiannon Giddens and Tim Eriksen.
