Tim Mahoney is an author, filmmaker, and the founder of Thinking Man Films, an international production company located in Minneapolis, MN. Tim was raised hearing that the stories in the Bible where true, but as he got older he was challenged to lose those beliefs. These questions led him on a trip to Egypt and the very location of the Exodus story. It was there that he experienced his own crisis of faith when told there was no evidence for this account. Undeterred, he had to know – were these foundational stories in the Bible true or not? This led him on a 12-year investigation resulting in the feature documentary Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus. This award-winning film and its companion book, Patterns of Evidence: A Filmmakers Journey challenged the traditional views of biblical criticism, demonstrating archaeological evidence that matched the Bible’s narrative. The balanced approach allowed audiences to decide for themselves if the Exodus was truth or myth. By requests, there is now Homeschool curriculum designed for Biblical History and Critital Thinking based on these and other material.
Tim Mahoney is a native of Minnesota and an avid outdoorsman. He and his wife, Jill, have been married for over 35 years. They have four married children and eight grandchildren.
