What's In the Bible Blog Tour and Giveaway
Phil Vischer, the creator of VeggieTales, introduces a new DVD series called, What's In the Bible? My kids and I had a great time watching the first two episodes in the series. The first episode, In the Beginning, talks about what the world's most amazing Book is, who wrote the Bible, and Genesis. The second episode, Let My People Go, covers who chose which books to be included in the Bible, what salvation is, and Exodus. Each DVD is filled with funny & interesting puppet characters, animation, catchy songs, Phil Vischer's talk, lessons from each book of the Bible, church history timeline, explanation/definition of "big" words, flannelgraph fun from the Sunday School lady, and more. Comparing this to VeggieTales, some may find it not as entertaining or engaging; however, I think it's a wonderful series that helps teach kids to appreciate and understand God's Word and get them excited to read/explore the Bible themselves. What I don't like are: the bickering between the characters and the boy character in the van who seems rude to his mom and quite demanding. Each DVD is approximately an hour long.
Giveaway: I have 2 certificates from Tyndale House Publishers to give away. One winner will be randomly selected to receive both certificates which can be redeemed for a copy of What's In the Bible? DVD 1 and DVD 2.
