What's in the Bible? Battle for the Promise Land Giveaway

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(12yrs.):  I thought it was really good. I thought the characters were really funny. I liked how the creators planned the DVD. I learned about the cycle of apostasy and how it gets worse every time it cycles around.

DS(10yrs):  I thought it was funny and I really liked the Bentley Brothers. They sang about all the judges.

DD(8yrs):  I liked this DVD. I learned that we shouldn't worship other idols. I learned that God had a plan from the very beginning.

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:

Totally love his new series, and Buck Denvers cracks me up.

But, my all time favorite would have to be Larry the Cucumber.

Oh I hope I'm not double posting. I think I was signed in to the wrong google account so I don't THINK my first comment posted. It would have been ETC if so.

Anyway, we LOVE these movies. My 4 year old said Phil is his fav character. :) My 7 year old loves Buck Denver! Thank you.

Hmmm...that's a tough one. I'd have to say either the Bentley brothers or the Sunday School lady. :)

I think my favorite Veggie Tales character is Larry, simply because I like the Silly Songs with Larry bits.

Junior has always been my favorite! Although, Buck is a close second! We love Jelly Telly, so this video would be great. Visiting from the Crew!
