A Rich Christiano Film
“A Matter of Faith has a message that is highly relevant and desperately needed for America today.
–Ken Ham, Answers In Genesis
“A clash of worldviews puts a spotlight on the creation-evolution debate in this captivating film. A committed Christian dad, a doubting daughter, and a charismatic liberal professor stir up a lot of tension and intrigue on campus. It has solid Biblical principles and a gripping plot. Kudos to the Christianos for another outstanding family-friendly film.”
–Tim Wildmon, President, American Family Association
“A great movie. Heart-warming, educational, God-honoring, and timely.”
–Ray Comfort, Living Waters Ministries
“Five out of five stars”
