This latest film, labeled No. 18 "Name," draws its lesson from the ancient biblical story of Jacob wrestling with a heavenly being.
Followers of the Nooma series will find that No. 18 is another of the visually daring Nooma films. The special effects were simple to produce here -- but the impact is striking. (And, I won't spoil the film by explaining any more about the visual imagery.)
As usual, Rob Bell takes the ancient story and quickly connects the lessons with issues we confront every day.
Lori5 Stars Out Of 5August 28, 2009LoriMy son struggles so much with loving and being himself. After watching this, I asked him to watch it. It was short and very easy for him to watch. It held his attention. And he commented that it was just what he needed!

I wanted to use it with teenagers and I think it was targeted more for adults. But all of his stuff is good. I was just hoping for a little more "oomph" that would appeal to the teenagers.
