A Note from the Host, David Rives:

“I was approached by Benjamin Owen, an award-winning filmmaker, in Dickson, TN about hosting 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! You will be blown away with this movie.”

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!

    “…I’m not going to try to go over every topic that was in the DVD because that would be too hard, so instead I’ll just go over a general review. …I was a little uncertain at first, but after I watched the trailer I knew it was going to be awesome!

    I’m glad to say, the trailer was not deceiving. The documentary was a masterpiece in my opinion. I can tell a lot of work went into researching and creating this documentary. I’m simply amazed at how much there was about Hummingbirds that I didn’t know and how complex they are. Everything from their flight system to the way their bodies work was incredible.

    My only complaint is that there is nothing about the DVD which I can critic, so I don’t really have much to say in this review. So I’ll just say that Refracted Glory: Marvels in every Way has earned itself 5 out of 5 stars. By the end of the documentary, you will very likely be saying “that didn’t happen by chance!”

    Refracted Glory is an amazing body of work, clearly inspired and well researched. Having always been interested in the Hummingbird this was a must see for me personally. David does an exceptional job of bringing you into and walking you through this documentary in a way that keeps you interested and imparts understanding to the viewer. People of all ages and walks of life will not want to miss this wonderful opportunity. The Hummingbird is another amazing example of the Creator’s handiwork and I for one am grateful for the illumination this documentary has shed on this ‘Tiny Little Jewel’.

    This is most likely the same show I watched about hummingbirds on my Roku GSN channel several months ago and I was impressed. I am ordering this right now as a Christmas gift for a friend who loves hummingbirds, loves learning new things by watching documentaries, and who does not believe in God. I have very high hopes that the creators of this specific DVD may very well save a soul through this gift I am about to purchase!

    Absolutely amazing! This was very well done and is now one of my favorite documentaries, and I was so pleased- actually I was ecstatic- that the King James was used! Awesome! Praise the Lord! That just lent such a beauty to the documentary. I couldn’t help but smile as I watched this. It was so beautiful and the music was very pretty.

    Praise the Lord for His wonderful design though out all of His creation
