Three weeks ago I reviewed the first DVD in a series produced by Reel Productions. I very much enjoyed Incredible Creatures That Defy Evolution I and was eager to see the sequel. I was glad to see that volume II is every bit the quality production of its predecessor. In fact, it is probably just a little bit better.
My only complaint about the first volume is that there was perhaps a little too much still photography and not enough video. This was resolved in volume 2. This episode is packed full of amazingly detailed video showing some of God’s most amazing creatures.
The Incredible Creatures That Defy Evolution series is hosted by David Hames and features commentary and narration by Dr. Jobe Martin, a former evolutionist who is now a convinced creationist. The format is much the same as in the first video. David Hames introduces a segment (with humor that will probably appeal more to children than adults) and Dr. Martin then provides the story of an incredible creature. At times it seemed to me that in his enthusiasm he may have lost track of the purpose of the production, which was not merely to discuss God’s amazing creatures, but to show how they defy evolution. This was more clear in the previous volume. Of course there is still much to learn here about whales, fireflies, glowworms, hippos, sparrows and many other animals.
As with the previous video I highly recommend this one and feel this is a great addition to any library – public, school, church or personal. It is enjoyable for just about any age group, from small children (my five-year old enjoyed it) to adults.

The theology is strong throughout, consistently pointing to God’s sovereignty in Creation.
The extra features are sparse – just a page-by-page recap of the incredible creatures.
There are plenty of DVDs promoting creationism, but Dr. Martin sets this one apart.
Ideal for the whole family. Let the children watch, learn and believe!
The second installment in a great series. I highly recommend it.
