How many of us ever think about our breathing, about the meaning of breathing? In the Bible, the word for "breath" is the same as the word for "spirit." We've all been created in the image of God, but our lives are incredibly vulnerable and fragile. Maybe if we had more insight into the meaning of breathing, we would better understand how God created us as human beings.
Breath is the fourteenth DVD of the Nooma ® series - short films appropriate for personal and small group settings, congregational meetings, and much more. Like parables, they use the experiences of our lives to teach about the fullness of life through Jesus, tackling issues like forgiveness, discipleship, and unconditional love. The study materials accompanying each Nooma® encourage meaningful discussion with relevant questions and biblical references.

Frederik Fiandt1 Stars Out Of 5June 7, 2010Frederik FiandtI am a Pentecostal Christian and I find Rob Bell's teachings to be unbiblical and new-agey. His teachings are not accurate and are self-created and self-serving. Skip this series. Don't be taken in by the "newest thing in Christianity" as I have seen individuals and whole church sucomb to this. Rob Bell is a false teacher.
Irietys Burrows5 Stars Out Of 5September 24, 2009Irietys BurrowsVery well done. You will want to view this DVD more than once. Rob Bell has a thought provoking message. Great for adult groups.
t1 Stars Out Of 5March 5, 2009tBell brings forward an idea that was condemned as heresy long ago. You must always be skeptical of one who rarely mentions their sources. What he does exceptionally well is blur the issue and make it seem normative or perhaps a deep truth that we've just forgotten.Watch and listen closely with his last illustration about the atheist friend and work back to his use of breath being the spirit of God. The implication is not direct but hits like a hammer.
Debbie Swanson5 Stars Out Of 5November 11, 2008Debbie SwansonThis was one of the most profoundly spiritual videos I have seen in very, very long time. It opened my eyes to God's Spirit in ways I'd never imagined before. Rob Bell does a phenomenal job in bringing God's Word alive. Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommended.
