What's in the Bible?: It's Here!!!



We are HUGE Veggie Tales fans around here, so when I heard about Phil Vischer's latest project with Tyndale House, I was definitely interested!

A few months ago, I was sent a preview DVD of this project and immediately, the whole family fell in love with "What's in the Bible?"

And that was just a few minutes of preview!

I, of course, jumped at the chance to review the first two DVDs.

"What's in the Bible?" is a project very near and dear to Vischer's heart - in fact, it has been ON his heart since he started Veggie Tales. His goal behind this DVD series is to take the time kids have in between church activities and fill it with humor, entertainment and Biblical knowledge. Great combination. For kids and parents.

I stuck the DVD in and my kids were instantly quiet and tuned in. And then they started singing along with the theme song. And laughing. LOTS of laughing. From me as well.

The interesting thing about this series is it is for kids but it presents a WEALTH of Biblical knowledge. Many things I didn't know that my almost four-year-old goes around reciting now! This series doesn't dumb anything down - just makes it fun and entertaining to learn.

And the music.

The music ROCKS. The kids walk around singing songs from it all the time. And how great is it to hear their little voices singing about Genesis?! We LOVE that song!

In true Phil Vischer style, this DVD entertains everyone from my toddler, to the elementary kid who caught a few minutes while his mom and I chatted, to his mom who stopped talking to me to hear the puppets talk! I love how it appeals to all ages!

It really is fabulous.

Just take a look for yourself...



Did I mention there will be 13 DVDs in this series?! And ours is one family who wants to own every single one! How about you?

Well, I can help get you started!

  5. I'm so excited about this! It's great for my own kids, but I'd love to use for the kids in my neighborhood. I've been looking for a way to teach them about the Bible and I think this would be PERFECT.

    So glad I read about this today. Thanks for the review!

  7. Wow--thanks for sharing this-was not aware of this project. I have a 16 year old who never quite got into Veggie Tales and well, to this day(due to some very rough family issues) she has no faith at all :( I am divorced and am now re-married and have 2 little ones ages 3 and 9. They love the Veggies!! I am hoping they will have a much stronger faith than their older sister and will share it with her as they grow up. This series seems like a really great way to help them grow stronger and more mature in their faith. Can't wait to check it out!!
