Exploration Films Releases DVD Box Sets of Two Popular Documentary Series Examining the History of Israel and Significance of the Holy Land
MONUMENT, Colo., August 8, 2011 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Exploration Films invites you to travel thousands of miles to Israel – past, present and future - without ever leaving your home. Two popular documentary series, "ISRAEL: A Journey Through Time" and "ISRAEL: A Journey of Light," are now available in 6-disc DVD box sets. Hosted by Dr. John Tweedie, both series were produced by Christians for Israel, Canada, and filmed entirely in HD on location in Israel.
"ISRAEL: A Journey Through Time" ($99.95, 270 minutes), which respected actor/singer/author Pat Boone has called "a graduate course in the Jewish roots of Christianity," offers a four thousand year historical and biblical overview of The Holy Land, from Abraham's divine call to Israel's ongoing struggle to survive as a Jewish homeland in the hostile environment that is the Middle East.
"ISRAEL: A Journey of Light" ($99.95, 326 minutes) traces Jewish influence and accomplishments down through history against a backdrop of unending prejudice and persecution. The series also illustrates how Jewish ingenuity and innovation in the 20th and 21st centuries have contributed to the well-being of humanity as a whole.
"The story of Israel is inspiring, complicated, uplifting, complex, emotional, and too often misrepresented and misunderstood," says Aryeh Green, Director of Media Central Jerusalem. "'ISRAEL: A Journey of Light' is an amazing exploration of the real Israel – society, culture, history, politics, everything! If you can find a better, more thorough film presenting the history of the Jewish people, their connection with the Land of Israel, the founding of the modern state of Israel and its continued flourishing, tell me, as I haven't seen one."
A respected pro-Israel Christian pastor and leader, series host Dr. Tweedie helped establish a Canadian branch office of Christians for Israel International, a European-based ministry established in 1979 for the benefit of Israel and Jewish people. Christians for Israel Canada was incorporated in 1997 and in October 2005 received official recognition as a Canadian Charity. For more information, visit www.c4i.ca
Both series are currently airing around the world, including weekly airings on TBN in the United States. "ISRAEL: A Journey Through Time" and "ISRAEL: A Journey of Light," are now available in stores, at digital retailers and online at Amazon.com.
