This is a great study because it combines video shot in Israel with a teaching video taught by Christian biblical professors. The lessons are impactful, as are the lessons to do on your own. This is a great study for those who want good teaching but not a lot of additional study.
This format was not conducive to our group. Moving back and forth between video and discussion is disjointed. Materials in the book were not very helpful without the video...which I had to borrow because it is not longer available. In short: 3 stars at most.
My ONLY complaint is that the speakers are not looking at the camera..they are looking out in the distance....doesn't seem as 'engaged' as I would have liked...but they are all knowledgeable and terrific! My class enjoyed this series.
My husband and I facilitate different Bible studies.We have reviewed the DVD and the workbookfor our groups and we both think they are greatly informative. We enjoyed the change of teachers, as well as the several breaks for discussion. We believe it will stir up interesting, open dialog within the participants.
