What’s In The Bible?

Do you have kids who you want to teach about the Bible?  Or do you just enjoy watching kids DVDs?

Is so, watch this short clip and then keep reading to find out how YOU could win a free copy of one of the two new releases!!!



I am really excited about these 2 new DVDs for kids by Phil Vischer.  His creativity and passion has produced a quality program for kids that is not only entertaining, but incredibly educational.  AND…beyond that, it’s not just academically educational, but Biblically educational.  In short, this video series is like a Bible survey class for kids.  Except that this is a “class” your kids will want to be in on!

My personal take on this series is that over all I really liked it.  In fact, I would award it 4 stars out of 5.  I’ll be honest and tell you that the only reason I don’t give it all 5 stars is because of a few details that to me are personal preferences, namely it’s presentation of creation.  (It explains that some people think that when God created the world a day meant a literal day and that others believe a “day” could have been longer.)  There are many people out there with a strong opinion on this issue in both directions.  While I am in the group that believes a “day” meant a 24 hour day as we know it now, I do not believe that the presentation in this DVD is one to be thrown out completely.  I will let my kids watch it and then talk to them about it both now and as they continue to grow up.  In all fairness to the people who are reading this review and who know me in real life, let me say that this is not a DVD that I would show in church.  However, all that being said…I still have to walk away from this DVD saying that I am impressed.

There was a lot in these two episodes that most adults might not even know!  And the great thing about What’s In The Bible is that it teaches Bible survey in a fun way and with a very understandable presentation to young kids.  These programs are a great blend of a real human person talking (Phil Vischer himself), animation, and puppets.  The characters are both funny and lovable and will appeal not only to kids, but to adults as well.  And, the adults might just learn a whole lot, too, while watching with their kids! 

In The Beginning and Let My People Go will be a great educational and entertainment addition to your DVD collection and would be great movies to use for a family movie night for younger families with children 9 years old and younger.  Although, I would not be surprised to find older kids enjoying them, too!
