CJ and I are both huge fans of the Veggie Tales series. They are entertaining for CJ and teach him great messages. When I heard the Phil Vischer, creator of Veggie Tales (and possibly more importantly, the voice of Bob the Tomato) had a new project coming out, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I emailed over to the people at the new project and they were awesome in replying back and sending me a copy of What's in the Bible to review. So check it out.
This is Michael. On the show, Michael is in his mom's minivan being driven to his grandma's house. He has a lot of funny comments to make about the bible and this show through it. His bible has a few more books than others because he stashes his comics in it. He will be more than happy to read to you from "the gospel according to the Green Lantern".
The first DVD, titled Genesis, has two parts. The first focuses on facts about the bible while the second part delves into Genesis and what Genesis means. It explained that the bible was written by many people over what was probably about 1600 years. They explain in what order it was written, by whom, and how it is ordered within the bible. It explains what words like testament (not testa-mints for fresh breath like Michael thinks), inspired, and genesis actually mean. I particularly loved Phil's explanation of God taking seven days to create everything. He explains that not all Christians agree on every part of the bible, and that that is ok. He explains that some people believe that when the bible says that world was created in seven days, it literally means 7 earth days or 144 hours. He explains that other people believe that it means seven "God" days, that for God time is eternal. I just thought it was great how he explained both sides of everything, and most importantly taught that sometimes Christians don't agree, and that is ok. He also teaches that sometimes we just don't know the answer, and that is ok too.
As you can tell, I am in love with What's in the Bible. I honestly can't come up with one negative thing about it. The songs are funny and informative, the puppets are hilarious. It amuses the heck out of both CJ and I. I love its' message and that not only will CJ learn from it, but I am learning from it myself. I never knew who wrote each book of the bible, or what order it was in. I just never bothered to think about it.
