Brock Gill Featured in Discover Channel 3-Part Special

Very Cool DVD

Christian Illusionist Brock Gill will be featured on the Discovery Channel in a special titled, Miracles of Jesus Christmas Eve.  They'll broadcast the three one-hour shows back-to-back starting at 1:00 pm (EST).

The program is a result of the British Broadcasting Corp. investigation into the validity of Jesus' reported miracles. 

The BBC asked Mr. Gill to visit the Holy Land and render an opinion
— based on his knowledge of mag — whether Jesus could have used
magic, hypnotism or some
other trick to create the illusion of miracles.

Mr. Gill told reporters, "I've always been fascinated by miracles, ever since I was a kid
reading the Bible stories."

The illusionist is upfront about his perspective.  He never really
considered the possibility Jesus ' miracles were anything but.  In the
show, Mr. Gill tells the audience that he is a Christian but that he
has tried to set-aside his beliefs to fairly consider the reported
miracles.

Mr. Gill prepared for the journey by reading and researching the skeptic's perspective of the miracle narratives.

"Before
I got into really doing the investigation, I did research on some of
the skeptics' views, and there were some quite convincing ideas. It
rattled me a little bit," said Mr. Gill. "I thought, 'I really want to
find the truth here.' "

The BBC producer was particularly impressed by Mr. Gill's illusion
and escape show. "We realized we didn't need an academic to lead the
program, but we needed somebody who was interested and knowledgeable
about Scripture and particularly interested in the miracles," Mr.
Bragard said.

Mr. Gill reports his faith was strengthened by the experience, not
shaken. "Before this year, my beliefs were based just on the Bible and
what my parents and pastors had told me," he said. "Now, I'm really
convinced that what I'm believing is the truth."

Check out Brock Gill's very cool web site.
There are two versions, both accessible from the main index page.  One
leads to the Flash ver. 8 and the other to the Flash ver. 7.  We were
limited in our processing power and could only visit the older
rendition. 

Most impressive is the show types and illusion list.  He performs
some pretty risky magic including an underwater escape as well as a
bullet catch. 

While searching the web, we also found a blog run by his wife,
Auny.  Ms. Gill is an incredible writer.  You get a great feel for the
life of a family committed to bringing Jesus' message to modern day
audiences through our wonderful art.

We knew we liked Mr. and Mrs. Gill when we saw they were fans of
Toby Mac – our favorite Christian Musician and former member of the
incredible D.C. Talk.
