Dr. Craig Evans, HBU John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, serves as host of the documentary film, “Fragments of Truth,” produced by Faithlife Films. In the film, Dr. Evans explores the important question, “Can we trust the integrity of the writings of the Bible?” Evans examines New Testament manuscripts and interviews scholars and experts the world over. Along the way, he highlights new evidence, challenges skeptics and demonstrates the reliability of the New Testament manuscripts. The film is narrated by John Rhys-Davies, known for his roles in “Indiana Jones” and “The Lord of the Rings” films.
“Fragments of Truth” will be screened in 741 theaters nationwide via Fathom Events at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24. The showing fill feature an exclusive Question & Answer session with Director Reuben Evans and Dr. Craig Evans. Reuben Evans said, “The challenges to the reliability of the Gospels have never been greater. But when we heard about the latest research Dr. Craig Evans published, we knew this was a story that we had to tell.”
