What’s in the Bible: Battle for the Promised Land (Giveaway)

image

Episode #4 of the new “What’s in the Bible” series takes the viewer through the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. This highly entertaining DVD series was created by Phil Vischer (the creator of the Veggie Tales series). The songs, puppets, and humor make these videos both fun and educational for the whole family. We reviewed Episode 3 a few months ago and were delighted to have the opportunity to view the next episode as well.

What’s in the Bible: Battle for the Holy Land begins with Joshua and the Israelites entering the Holy Land and follows them through hardships, battles, and rebellion against God. The viewer will learn why God ordered the Israelites to wipe out the other nations in the Promised Land, what the role of the judges was, and why the story of Ruth is in the Bible.

I think the “What’s in the Bible” series is  great family entertainment that is enjoyable for all ages. I appreciate that it does more than simply tells the stories of the Bible. It does a very good job of introducing theology to children, including difficult subjects like sin and redemption, God’s covenant, and the cycle of apostasy (and yes, it does use and define difficult words like “apostasy.”)

Emily says, “I think that it’s really entertaining and makes you want to come back for more and read more of the Bible. I like the jungle guys and the pirate. I think they are hilarious.” 

Even I chuckled at the antics of the church ladies,  the pirate, and other characters and at the silly but memorable songs. I’m looking forward to viewing more of this series.

  3. We have the first 3 and enjoy them. Some of the information does conflict with what we believe, but that is the reason to watch with our children and talk about it. :)
