This DVD is wonderful! My children ask to watch one of the What's in the Bible DVD's nearly every day. My husband and I also enjoy them and have learned some things about Bible history ourselves! The characters are engaging for little ones! The DVD is broken up into two episodes, with each episode containing several segments. I would recommend this DVD and this series to any family who wants a fun and entertaining way to support Biblical knowledge for their children!
This series _What's In the Bible? with Buck Denver_ is by far, Phil Vischer's best work to date (and we all know he does fabulous work!) As instructional designers and former teachers, my husband and I are extremely impressed by the instructional design aspect of this series. We have even learned some things because of how well the information is presented! There are a variety of characters and different vignettes so the show goes quickly and keeps the attention of the audience. The characters are endearing and funny but do actually teach important information that even someone in seminary will have to know! My favorite character (as a former history teacher) is the pirate who teaches church history. Sounds crazy but he breaks it down with such great visuals that he cleared up some confusion I always had to look up before I taught because I would transpose dates by accident. The visuals make it so searing to memory that the information has finally stuck in my mind now! The best part of this series is its accuracy and ecumenical nature. It is spot on with traditional, fundamental views of the Bible and Church teachings. I highly recommend it for families who want clean, wholesome yet educational entertainment. This series is also on Right Now Media if you want to try one out first before you buy it. Well-worth the investment! I would go so far to say it can even be used in Children's Church or Sunday School because it is that good!
Our grandsons have enjoyed all the dvds in this series . There is so much competition for our childrens attention these days that we were more than happy to purchase the whole series to help direct their minds towards Gods word.
Here are my new friends, Clive and Ian, Sunday School Lady, Pirate Pete, and more, about to take me on a tour of the greatest book of all timethe Bible. Phil Vischer, creator of VeggieTales, is behind all these puppets and writes almost all the songs. His new series must have been a labor of love, when I consider what must have gone into it. In two 25-minute episodes, Vischer explains what is a Bible, who wrote the Bible, and many more questions. It also explains what books are in the Bible, what Genesis means, andin a remarkable cartoon sequencecreates one of the best explanations of the fall I have ever seen, to the sound of Chuckwagon the cowboy puppet singing. Little black furry balls with teeth representing sin, stick to people like miserable little backpacks; clever, and also a good analysis of the material. What Vischer does best, I think, is to use humor and color and fun, yet in no way to decrease the seriousness or sometimes difficulty of the story. This is a general introduction to the whole series, plus a basic overview of Genesis and its first eleven chapters. Genesis continues in Volume 2. For all ages. I bought the entire series and plan to review them all.
Both sections will hold the attention of K on up,. They nbeed an intreodution and and discussion afterwards. I would have liked to have seen more on Jacob and Joseph as well as Moses. Really good as far as it went. Marty
