Genesis at B.J. Haan Oct. 7

September 28, 2006

Max McClean

Genesis, a theatrical rendition of the first book of the Bible by Max McLean, will be presented Saturday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. in Dordt College’s B.J. Haan Auditorium.

McLean has made it his life work to bring the Bible alive to his audiences. Since 1983 he has performed Mark, Acts, and Genesis to millions of people on TV, radio, at theatres, colleges, churches and through DVDs, crossing cultural and religious spectrums.

With remarkable energy and a gift for storytelling that can prickle the back of your neck, McLean captures the humor and pathos in Genesis’ dramatic sweep from Eden to Babel, from the immense flood of Noah to Abraham's heart-cleaving sacrifice of his son Isaac, from the epic destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah to Jacob's soul-wounding wrestling match with the Angel of God. Genesis is the story of stories, an eloquent telling of the first book of the Bible, a theatrical tour de force.

This presentation is free to the public thanks to two local sponsors, Trinity Christian Reformed Church of Rock Valley and KDCR Radio, 88.5 FM.
