My family has grown to love Phil Vischer over the years via Veggie Tales and Jelly Telly. I was thrilled when the “What’s in the Bible?” series came out because I knew it would be another wonderful Christian resource for my kids.
I was sent What’s in the Bible? Battle for the Promised Land. I gathered all 5 kiddos up and popped the DVD into the DVD player. The DVD is divided into two 25min. segments that cover the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth.
What We Thought:
Me (mom): I thought that this was so well-done! This isn’t a mindless video that you hope your kids learn something good from it. This video is intentional on teaching children what these books of the Bible are about. It doesn’t shy away from some tough questions like, “Why would God allow the Israelites go to war in order to get to the Promise Land? This specific video does a wonderful job of presenting the fact that God has a plan of redemption– a rescue plan! Phil Vischer and his crew use witty dialogue, songs and puppets to present this information in a fun and memorable way. I even learned a thing or two from watching this video. I will be adding more of these into our collection and using them in our Bible study time.
DD’s (2 yr & 3yr.): Even though the humor and subject matter was a little over their heads, they enjoyed watching the puppets and trying to sing along with the songs. They have asked repeatedly to watch this DVD and are starting to memorize some of the songs.
Check out a sample of the video:
