What's in the Bible DVD Series -- Phil Vischer does it again.

Phil Vischer, creator of Veggie Tales does it again with "What's in the Bible" DVD Series.  He has teamed up with Tyndale House Publishing to teach kids and families about the bible and walk them through it from beginning to end.    I was provided the opportunity to review an advance copy of both DVD 1 In the Beginning and DVD 2 Let My People Go.  They are excellent!!!   Phil Vischer, along with a cast of puppet characters including: Newsman  Buck Denver, the funny brother duo Clive and Ian, Sunday School Lady and her magic flannelgraph which talks and only she can hear, Pastor Paul, Brother Louie, cowboy Chuckwagon, and pirate Captain Pete to name a few,  who together lead you through the bible.  

Unlike the Veggie tales in which you could plant your kid in the front of the DVD and leave them to watch, you are going to want to sit down with your kids to watch the "What's in the Bible" series.   James, father and I have already watched the dvd about a dozen times and each time learn something new.   

In DVD 1 In the Beginning (covers Genesis) and DVD 2 Let My People Go,(covers Exodus)  you'll be amused as well as educated while you learn about how the bible was made, how God inspired people to write the bible, the Septuagint and why there are a different number of books in the Hebrew, Catholic and Orthodox versions of the bible, learn the definition of salvation and redemption and canon and how God wants to rescue us from sin.  Phil even tackles the question of the definition of what does a "day" mean and that there are some questions that will have to go unanswered.   

The episodes are both lighthearted and serious, and geared to all ages.  It will get your kids asking questions and have you heading either to the encyclopedia, the internet or the bible to answer.  Each time James has picked out something different and wanted to know more  - for example who is Martin Luther or why do the sin monsters look like little hairy blobs with teeth. (you see what I'm talking about in the video clip down below)  Father especially appreciated the beginning when Vischer explained all about what happened when Big Idea and Veggie Tales had to declare bankruptcy, his legal battles, and starting over.   I learned a few things about the Septuagint and the Apocrypha which, yes are big words and explained so that kids can understand. 

I am looking forward to the rest of the series.  There will be 13 total and each DVD has 2 25 minute episodes.   To find out more about the series, head on over to What's in the Bible," plus check out Jelly Telly and to see what else Phil is working on, check out his site

And, And, And......

I have two Tyndale House Publishers Award Certificates to give away:  One for DVD 1 - In the Beginning and one for DVD 2 Let My People Go, which you can redeem at your local christian bookstore for a free copy of the DVDs.  Please leave your name and email in comments and the winner will be picked, using random.org of course.  Giveaway will end March 24th and is open to U.S. Residents only.

  21. Madom,
    I am from Kerala, a state in India. I am following the life and times of GALELIO GALELEE for some time. I had abridged the play 'The Life of Galelio' last year and enacted it in 180 centres of our State. I had already heard that there is a Hungarian Novel named The Star Gazer on the life of Galelio. But my attempts to get a copy failed as the same is out of print.Even our libraries don't have a copy. Then it came as a blessing to my understanding that you have a copy of the novel in your shelves! I would very much wish to have a copy of the book be mine also..Can you help me? How can? give me a mail please in this address: venu.n.padickal@gmail.com
    with much love,
