The Black Box Booklet
The Black Box Gallery Panels (in booklet form)
Displayed June 25-July 6, 2004
At our Rekindling the Fire festival on the National Mall in Washington, DC, in summer 2004, we presented an historical documentary entitled The Black Box. We compared the demise of the vibrant life and faith of the first-century church to the crash of an airplane, with the Bible as the “black box” that holds the secrets as to what caused its demise. From this premise we stepped through many notable chapters of the history of Christianity which illustrate the fact that it is not the same “airplane” as originally took off in the first century, but has an entirely different nature. The links on this page enable you to download the entire documentary in booklet form, which you can either view on your screen or print on your color printer. We hope you will find this documentary fascinating, and welcome you to write to us with any questions or comments you may have as you read it.
