I watched only one of the DVDs with a non-Christian friend (I am a Christian with a recent master's in theology aka MDIV). My friend said it was not his cup of tea 20 minutes in. I made him watch the whole DVD and I was disappointed. It was like a political debate in the sense that many of the answers were canned (that is OK to a degree of course) but did not really fit the question (not so good and not acceptable). This happened way too much for me to give a high review here. Also, Ravi goes off on tangents not related to the question. I love his books (esp. Jesus Among Other Gods) and radio show, he just went off track here. I will eventually listen to the other DVDs if I can find them (stuff gets lost around here), but I have to say I was very disappointed. And to a degree embarrassed.
We are "fans" of Dr. Zacharias and always tune in during the question and answer stage of his teachings. This DVD series is just excellent. Some of the most thought-provoking questions are asked of Ravi, and his answers are deep and insightful. We are so happy we finally treated ourselves to these DVDs, because sometimes we have to pause or replay just to let his words sink in. Absolutely highly recommend!!!
I would have prefered the last disk had been Ravi's responses rather than a panel discussion with other professors. The other members of the panel were not conservatve scholars, however Ravi did a great job.
These videos are very worthwhile to help when you are hit with the same questions and objections. Instead of being silent you must answer and defend the faith. One of the disks were defective but CBD promptly offered to send a replacement. I did not want to dock my rating over that because this is such good content. Turn off the boob tube and watch some "meat" that will help you advance the great commission. Watch these with family and small groups.
If you are into Christian apologetics, there's no place better to go than Ravi. Taped before live audiences on university campuses, he and others take questions unrehearsed from students and provide quality answers that force one to think.
As for the DVDs themselves, one session has two parts; another forces you to restart the DVD after every answer, at least on my equipment. They could have done a better job with the technical compilation, but the substance is second to none.
