"What's in the Bible?" DVD Review and Giveaway

Pop Quiz!  Do you know who this man is:
Phil Vischer
No?  Well his name is Phil Vischer, and about twenty years ago he created a little animated series called VeggieTales.  Ring any bells?  I thought so.  I can't think of a single person I know who doesn't like VeggieTales.  The guy is talented, no doubt.  So, when I got the opportunity to preview a video from his latest series, What's in the Bible,  I jumped at the chance.  This is the video I received:
Cover: Israel Gets a King!
My kids loved it.  Loved. It.  The puppets and popsicle stick theater are reminiscent of my Sunday school days in the 80s, so I loved it, too!  It tells the stories straight from the Bible and tells them in a way my 5-year-old could easily understand.  Okay, okay, it told them in a way that I could understand, too.  Yep, I admit, I did actually learn a few things from this.  Now this is volume 5.  There are four episodes prior to this one we have not yet seen, beginning with Genesis (of course).  Let me emphasize YET, because this is something I want my kids to see.  And, I want to see them, too.  This volume includes the books of 1 & 2 Samuel.  Now, as we all know, the Bible does not end at the conclusion of 2 Samuel, so it's a bit of a cliffhanger ending.  This is totally tragic according to my son; he wants to know what happens next.  I am over the moon about the fact that he is dying to know what happens next in the Bible!!  My son's other concern is that we will have to send this movie back (he's used to NetFlix), so he was super excited to hear that this copy is ours to keep.  Yes, this means I will not be doing a giveaway for our copy of What's in the Bible. BUT, the amazing people at Tyndale have sent me a certificate for a FREE copy of this fabulous DVD, and it could be yours!

  1. That video really does sound neat. As a teacher of preschoolers at church, I'm always looking for more ways to get the message to them.


  2. I want one! :) Pick me pick me!

  3. It sounds like a DVD that the whole family would enjoy.


  4. My kids love this series too. We have the first two. It is amazing. The songs do get stuck in my head. I love the Sunday School Lady. :) They put a lot in there for the parents entertainment as well.

  5. Looks so fun for my 4 year old!
