We were introduced to this series of DVDs in the mid 1990's at church and began buying them for our family. At first we used them for homeschooling Bible studies but we continued watching them over and over. Back then they were VHS and lately we've had problems with them wearing out and getting stuck in the VCR so we just ordered the first five again, this time on DVD. That's how good they are. We have all 12 and the study guides that go along with them and just continue to watch them in order from start to finish and never tire of them. Ray Vander Laan is an incredible, humble, insightful teacher and teaches from his heart as well as his mind. The scripture becomes much more real as he explains different cultures, customs and meanings of the Bible. Even though we have watched them many times it seems we still learn something new each time that we didn't pick up on before. Can't recommend these highly enough. Every time we get a catalog from CBD I open it first to these DVDs to check and see if #13 has arrived yet. We will continue to purchase them. It's the best Bible teaching my husband and I have ever received and we've been in church all our lives.
Just great. The Faith Lessons series always shed new light on subjects I thought I already knew. Love to see the actual locales we are learning about. It brings the Bible to life in a way words alone cannot do. My Wed. night small group partners are really enjoyed the series. This is our third in the series.
I started one session at a time and played it over and over again, and every time I saw it I learned something new. I knew nothing of the bible and this has helped me not only learn but gain understnding and insight. Thank you for the work that you do.
