While I thought the information presented in the video was helpful, the WAY the DVD was produced was ridiculous! The expression on the people's faces is so phony. The information he presents is good but the phony-ness of the people makes one think that the information is phony too.
He should have just been talking to a camera, leave the people out of it.
Also, they show this beautiful aerial shot of a house on water but when the camera zooms in, he obviously isn't there, because it's a backdrop of water. It's just another thing that seem phony about the whole thing.
It actually better to just listen to the DVD and NOT watch it.
I borrowed this from the Library watched it twice and decided to buy it. It contains excellent info totally relevant to the needs of people today. Those who did not like the dvd were only looking for externals and sadly missed the valuable teaching within. I really appreciate Dr. Cloud and those who opened their personal lives up to share with those in need of help dealing with issues of great importance to them. I Appreciate the expressing of God's Great Love for all people and His desire for us all to seek salvation in Him as Lord & Savior.
I gave it at least one star because when I watched the promo video that CBD furnished I became even mor confused as to whether I wanted to buy the DVD. The promo showed the words (title) in various ways with someone speaking. It gave absolutly no information as to examples of what was in the DVD. Therefore I'm not buying it.
No stars on this one for me. Interested in all I can get about God, but this DVD did didn't do it for me. The speaker continued to have the camera swaying left to right, and right to left, the whole time he was doing the presentation. And as I have given up drinking over 25 years ago, while watching that swaying in the video, made me feel like I had been drinking.Between that, and the need to keep turning the camera on the 10 or 12 person audience, just so we can see their smile, or shaking their heads in agreement... it was all so phony! If you were watching, you could clearly see that those were all 'fake' shots taken during a 'practice' time for inputting into the film later.Was the person giving the presentation feeing he was not interesting enough for the film? That he had to have swinging cameras and fake smile shots, that was supposed to make it more interesting???Nothing personal against anyone on the film. I just don't need the fake stuff. Just give me a good film, let the person tell there story, and leave out all the nonsense... including, on some videos, occasional music being played to loud while trying to hear what the speaker is saying. PLEASE!!! If you are going to make them, make them enjoyable to watch. Review them first before you put them on the store shelves.Sorry, but I won't be putting this one on my Christmas list.
