    The true Christmas Story DVD

    There really was not much to it. Not as long as the cover indicates. Don't think I will use it again.

    Disappointing for a Vander Laan production

    Although the DVD claims 62 minutes running time, the title episode is only 18 minutes long. Even at that, it doesn't really describe the Christmas story at all; it is basically a comparison of the wealth and power of Herod vs. the meanness of the Savior's birth. The rest of the DVD is advertising for other Focus on the Family products, and a bonus video of the springs at En Gedi. Could have been much better if Ray had actually fulfilled what the title of the DVD claims.

    Probably the worst Christmas Story ever told

    This is the story: Herod was wealthy and powerful at the time of the birth of Jesus. You can see the ruins of what he created. Look at the ruins and imagine how wonderful they were. See some caves, Jesus was probably born in something like that. Imagine how Mary and Joseph felt passing Herod's beautiful palaces.

    We have a small group bible study and at the end everyone was speechless because there was nothing to say about this. It was a waste of money. Very disappointing. I will avoid Ray Vander Laan in the future.

    I was very disappointed when I received this DVD. I respect RVL very much and always enjoy listening to him. I bought this DVD with high expectations to show my students. My students also enjoy hearing RVL and were very excited about it. When I paid $20.00 and received around 15 minutes of usable information and a ton of advertising that made up the rest of the DVD, I have to say I was disappointed.

    RVL's information was great as usual, but the price of the DVD does not reflect the amount of usable product received.

    I have several DVD's from Ray Vander Laan and would recommend them to anyone. He is an excellent teacher. However, this DVD is only 20 minutes in length and I feel could have had a lot more to share about the birth of Jesus.
