Series: Family Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
When God told Noah to build an ark in the middle of nowhere, his friends and neighbors must ve thought he was nuts. In Evan Almighty, a family-friendly comedy about a modern-day Noah, God tells a U.S. Congressman named Evan Baxter to build an ark. Evan initially resists, but once he s convinced he s really heard the voice of God animals following him around, two by two, was a pretty good clue he decides to trust, obey, and build that big boat right in the middle of an affluent subdivision.
Everybody thinks Evan is nuts, including his family, who pretty much leaves him on his own. Yet Evan, like Noah, persists in obedience, no matter the consequences even when it appears he ll lose everything. Use this guide to discuss this humorous movie with your family.
