I was given the opportunity to review What’s in the Bible not only that, but I was flattered that they became my sponsor for the 2:1 Conference as well. I wanted to give you 5 reasons I think you should use “What’s in the Bible?”
1- Phil Vischer has a heart for teaching children about the bible using fun characters that make it memorable for the whole family.
2- The DVD’s are packed full of in-depth biblical literacy.
3- You yourself will end up learning more than you think! These DVD Volumes cover information such as biblical timelines, consequences of sin, and God’s plan of grace for all of us.
4- The Website is a great bonus to give you resources to reinforce all the information you are learning together. What’s in the Bible has and is creating flash cards to review with each DVD.
5- The Bentley Brother’s (real people) sing great songs to review through certain parts of the bible that maybe forgotten if not for a catchy song. One song that sticks out in my memory is about Elijah in 2 Kings when certain people were trying to kill him.
Phil has outdone himself again. I have really enjoyed watching these with my kids. The cast is a great variety of real people , puppet interaction and cartoon clips.
Each video teaches a lesson about actual facts from the Bible in an entertaining way. Phil and Buck Denver do a great job of helping everyone stay on track through the video lesson. *SPOILER ALERT* They even work Star Wars into one of the episodes. It’s almost like watching a variety show with all the different characters involved. Really , what’s not to l.o.v.e about this series?
