I originally bought this dvd to engage my teenage kids with the faith, but was disappointed that they didn't connect with the material and presenter. A few years later I started working at a homeless shelter and addictions recovery facility where I have been heavily involved with our evening chapels. I used this series last summer and the darker settings of each episode and the unsmiling, intense presenter actually was far more effective than some bright and bubbly, but shallow, presentations of the faith. The men received it. So, Soul redeemed itself, and its introduction to Jesus in the Gospel of Mark can be a good tool, in the right setting.
I am a huge fan of Christianity Explored and was excited about a "youth version". The producers did a great job with their camera work and cut scenes (very professional), but the main speaker is monotone, expressionless and boring... It is such a shame that the producers put so much into this only to fail here.
