whatbible10Let VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer and a bunch of hilarious new friends explain the entire Bible to your kids in this groundbreaking fast-paced and fun-filled DVD series. Includes TWO 25 minute episodes: God’s Perfect Timing – Buck Denver and crew learn about the 400 years between the Old and New Testaments and how Jesus arrives at just the perfect time & The Messiah Has Come! – Learn about the life and ministry of Jesus-how He died for us and rose again to launch the kingdom of God in the world and in us!

Our Thoughts…

Buck Denver asks…Volume 10: Jesus Is the Good News! is an excellent DVD to share with children, especially during the Holiday season. I say this because in celebrating Christmas as believers we are celebrating Christ, God’s gift to us. I feel it’s very important for children to see Him as more than just a babe in a manager. This collection teaches all about Jesus and what’s He’s done for us.

On this collection the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke & John are explained and discussed. These books show us that Jesus’ arrival was perfect in timing! We also learn very much about God through Jesus’ life & ministry while here on the Earth from the promise of a Saviour to His ultimate sacrifice for us!

Phil Vischer ( creator of the VeggieTales) has done an excellent job is explaining all of this in ways children can understand easily. There’s puppets, flash animations, catchy songs, but aside from all that, the DVD explains much in a serious manner and encourages children if they have questions about any of the topics like salvation to talk to a parent, church leader, etc. I think it’s good that was suggested instead of praying a prayer right there and then not knowing what they should do next in their walk with Christ.

P1160950

Things that were covered included: How the Power of Sin & Death Were Broken, That we all became sons & daughters of Christ, Jesus showed His Authority on Earth, That in the future there will be no evil and a New Kingdom of God is awaiting us, and much more. I would suggest watching one out of the two twenty-five minute episodes at a time and then discussing it before moving on. I appreciate there was a family discussion guide included with the DVD with great questions to direct conversations.

In addition to the DVD, there some fabulous extras found on the What’s in the Bible website to use and incorporate with watching the DVD. There’s coloring sheets, family discussion guide to back up what was learned and covered on the DVD, and more to print out absolutely free!

My children are quite fans of the series and we will continue to watch and discuss it! My daughter is 6 and she’s been asking more and more questions about God. I’m glad I’ve got this series to turn too for help in explaining and answering her! think this DVD is best suited for children age 5-10 years old and it’s really great for the whole family to enjoy together during this time of the year.We’ve been fan of this series for several years now and recommend this title as well as the others available highly.

A fun and exciting way to teach my children about popular Christmas traditions as well as the Birth of Christ has been through the “Buck Denver asks…Why Do We Call It Christmas?” DVD. This DVD as well as the rest of the series is created by Phil Vischer creator of the VeggieTales! There’s puppets, flash animations, catchy songs, and a clever story line that meshes everything one would wonder about the Holiday season altogether in an easy to understand way!

P1160703

On this DVD, viewers will learn about Christmas and the many traditional things we partake in during the month of December. Some of the things covered include where we get the word Christmas from, where Jesus was born, the story behind the Christmas tree, about St. Nicholas, and much more! I’ll admit that even I learned a thing or two!

I’m so glad my 6 1/2 year old sat and watched the whole film. She said she liked the movie and learned a lot. I imagine though we’ll watch it a few more times before Christmas day and bring it out again next year. I will say that it’s somewhat fast paced which is right up her alley. My nearly four year old son didn’t sit through the whole thing but we’ll try again with him next year. Total runtime of the DVD is 60 minutes. Aside from the main feature there’s bonuses which include sing-a-longs, outtakes, and Christmas poems to watch.

In addition to the DVD, there some fabulous extras found on the What’s in the Bible website to use and incorporate with watching the DVD. There’s coloring sheets, family discussion guide to back up what was learned and covered on the DVD, printable invitations, ornaments, cards, and more to print out absolutely free!

I think this DVD is best suited for children age 4-10 years old and it’s really great for the whole family to enjoy together during this time of the year.We’ve been fan of this series for several years now and recommend this title as well as the others available highly.
