I've have other Francis Chan material, and I didn't like it that much. They were choppy, seemed disconnected, scatterbrained, and confusing. His overall points were excellent, but the imagery didn't always make sense. So when I purchased this DVD for our group Bible Study, I was a little weary.
Boy was I WRONG!!!
Chan's points, again, are clear and to the point. He goes for the jugular with his words and images that are portrayed on the screen. I, and my group, have absolutely loved this DVD complement to the workbook and book as we've been studying this material. There have been times when some have wondered where Chan was going in his talk, but in the end...all of us were left spell-bound.
First, let me say that I love Francis Chan's teachings. Our small group is watching this DVD and going over the accompanying study guide. Overall, the DVD sessions are very short (between 5 and 11 minutes) and so far, our group has had a hard time understanding his point during the teaching time and how it applies to the teaching material. It seems as if he's just speaking off the top of his head without having a clear direction. Our group just finished a DVD/study guide series from a different teacher and maybe we're just used to seeing more didactic teaching.
Francis Chan has a very good way of challenging people to live in the power of the Holy Spirit and to obey the promptings of God's Spririt using analogies that are quite powerful. Our Bible study group is going through the videos along with the workbook and we are all finding it quite valuable.
