    The new five part “Refracted Glory Bible Study” released earlier this spring.  It adapts the documentary film to a format suitable for group studies.  The study booklet, written by Caleb Rodriguez, takes a slower pace than that of the film, which allows for a deeper exploration of Scripture.

    Hummingbirds, whether viewed in rocks or in flight, in laboratories or in backyards, point us to the eternal life only found in Jesus Christ.

    “It became clear that the ‘Refracted Glory’ movie was rather hard for churches to use,” says the film’s director, Benjamin Owen; “but we wanted that content to be usable for church groups.”  The solution of a Bible study came through much prayer, and the collaborative efforts of Caleb Rodriguez, David Rives, and others.

    The accompanying DVD provides an introduction for each session, with the “Refracted Glory” content referenced in the study booklet.  “You could say the documentary looks mostly at the science, where as the study book is focused mainly on Scripture,” explains Owen.

    Each session is rich with scripture and insight, great for stimulating exciting discussions with your family or bible study group.  While hummingbirds may point us to Scripture, it is Scripture which enables us to understand hummingbirds. And in every matter, His word is found reliable and relevant for our daily lives.

  • “Refracted Glory” will be among the documentaries featured in the Christian Worldview Film Festival this year. The festival will be held March 10th-14th, 2015 in San Antonio, TX. This event showcases some of the best in Christian media and it’s a blessing to see “Refracted Glory” included for 2015.


    Each film selected for the festival was judged independently by at least 5 judges who scored the film using a numbering scale covering up to 16 factors divided between worldview and technical merits.

    The Christian Worldview Film Festival “was started in 2014 by the non-profit ministry Media Talk 101 to encourage Christian Filmmakers in their Biblical worldview and the craft of filmmaking. The inaugural five day event featured 33 speakers presenting 50 unique workshops on Christian filmmaking, plus 80 Christian films which played on six different screens. An awards ceremony closed out the week with 13 different awards and a total of $6500 in prizes. The Film Festival had 700 registered attendees for our first year and we anticipate more in attendance for 2015.”

    We have press materials available HERE about the film.

     James Gardner, who appears in the film, said; “I have been looking forward to previewing this production for a long time. And I am happy to say that I am not disappointed. I am particularly pleased how you ended the film with a clear presentation of the Gospel. I think you did a very good job putting this together. And the video editing is impressive.”

    The host, David Rives said; “I was asked by Benjamin Owen to host a feature length documentary on Hummingbirds. As I began to do some preliminary research for the project, I realized that there has never been a documentary made about hummingbirds from a “design” perspective. These incredible creatures are so tiny, yet their capabilities are truly marvelous in every way! The films in the past that have aired on PBS and nature channels have been consistently from an evolutionary perspective, assuming that hummingbirds arose by means of natural selection over millions upon millions of years. This film “Refracted Glory” is not only inspirational and educational, but NOTHING LIKE IT HAS EVER BEEN PRODUCED…. Until now! Join me on this journey of discovery by ordering your copy today. With expert interviews, an original film score, animations, slow-motion video, and hosted and narrated by your’s truly!”
