New Illustra DVD Released: “Call of the Cosmos”

Illustra’s newest DVD showcases Psalm 19 in multiple ways.

A new feature-length DVD has just been released by Illustra Media, producers of The Privileged Planet. Here is the trailer for “The Call of the Cosmos” —

Psalm 19:1 famously says, “The heavens declare the glory of God.” The tools of modern astronomy enable us to see that glory as never before. As usual, Illustra brings ancient truths to glorious modern life through fantastic images, narration and interviews, and expansive music. The DVD includes seven episodes woven together that answer questions and explore mysteries about the universe and man’s place in it:

  • How big is the universe?
  • Are there really more stars than grains of sand?
  • How could God care about humans on such a “pale blue dot” in a vast universe?
  • Hear what a famous agnostic, author of God and the Astronomers, admitted about his agnosticism.
  • Learn about beautiful auroras and how they connect to the earth’s habitability.
  • Watch how a total solar eclipse unlocked secrets of the universe.
  • What did astronauts say on the first trip to the moon?
  • Be inspired by a collection of the finest space images, Scriptures and music.

Those familiar with the short classic “Powers of Ten” will enjoy the opening presentation of a journey to the limits of the universe, with probably the most accurate portrayal of the large-scale structure of galaxy clusters and superclusters ever made. Each episode flows into the next seamlessly, allowing viewing by chapters separately or as one hour-long visual adventure.
