Comments: Awesome, awesome, awesome! I show your Footprints of God: Jesus DVD to my 8th grade students and every year they LOVE it! Between the plethora of animals, humorous quips, and high octane theology – this DVD just can’t be beat! I gave a copy of the Moses DVD to our 6th grade Religion teacher and he uses it as well. Nothing but great comments from him and his students, too! Count me in for the next 3 DVDs, Steve! ~Greg A.

 


Blessed Pope John Paul II called for a New Evangelization to bring people to Christ using movies, media and other means of communication. 

We are answering the call — and need your help!?

“The laity, too, who have something to do with the use of these media, should endeavor to bear witness to Christ.” Vatican Council II

In the Jubilee Year of 2000, Ignatius Press teamed up with best-selling Catholic author Steve Ray to create The Footprints of God documentary series—the first of its kind 10-part saga of Salvation History from a Catholic perspective.  

These family oriented movies are fast-paced, entertaining, and educational.
The elements of a biography, travel documentary, Bible study and apologetics course are all rolled into a remarkable adventure! Since the project began, we’ve completed seven of ten films and over 120,000 copies have sold. 

There’s a great need for solid Catholic materials for education, formation and family fun. Thousands of testimonies confirm that Catholics and non-Catholics benefit from Steve’s simple, faithful, profound, and yes, even humorous teaching style. These movies grip old and young alike.  They are used in colleges, elementary schools, seminaries, prisons, parishes, in RCIA and CCD programs. But, they are watched most frequently by families in living rooms.


Each film has a companion study guide. These guides are comprehensive resources for each topic — each tied to the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. They carefully follow the script and are divided into four easy lessons.

All the documentaries are filmed on-location. Right now there’s a window of opportunity for travel to some areas of the Middle East that are not always accessible. There is an urgent need to film in these sensitive biblical locations while the opportunity to travel remains open. As an example, Abraham’s story began near Baghdad Iraq. We need to get this footage while we still have access to this important location. 

 We need your help to complete this worthwhile, one-of-a-kind project. The economic downturn has put The Footprints of God project on hold for the last few years. The cost to plan, film and produce the remaining three documentaries is approximately $600,000. 

We have begun the work on the final three films with a prayer that God will provide sufficient funds as we need them. We are anxious to start! We will send out e-mail newsletters twice a year for anyone who wants to track our progress, get updates and anecdotes and be the first notified when the documentaries are released. 

Ignatius Press has a tax-deductible, secure fund, entirely dedicated to filming, producing, distributing & translating The Footprints of God documentary series. This fund will not be used for any other purpose.
