What's in The Bible DVD 5 Israel Gets a King!


We love What's in the Bible? (WITB) with Buck Denver, man of news.  It's by far one of the best Christian based edutainment options out there.  We love it because the entire family can sit down and watch it together and laugh, as well as, learn.  I went to seminary, but I have always learn something new when I watch WITB.  It's great, but I think the laughter is the thing I love the most. 

Phil Vischer, the guy who did Veggie Tales, is the creator of WITB, but after hearing his story, I think creator might be the wrong word, facilitator could be a better choice.  I am in awe of how honest Vischer is in regards to the depth that God reached down into him in order to bring this series into being.  I am also in awe of Tyndale and their dedication to the series and to teaching the world about the Bible. 

Hannah's favorite part from Israel Gets a King, the latest in the series, is when King Saul and David fight in the popsicle theater.  Saul turns evil and oddly enough looks like Darth Vader including the light saber and David turns into a Luke Skywalker type character.  The two fight it out for a while and then David runs and runs.  She tells everyone she meets about that scene.  It made our entire family laugh out loud. 

This video series can easily be incorporated into adult Bible studies.  It is simple enough to understand for children, but helps put the stories of our own childhood into perspective.  This series makes learning about the Bible enjoyable.  It's not just memorization but realization of what actually occurred.  I am looking forward to continuing to enjoy Israel Gets a King and all the other episodes that will accompany it in the future.


Now for the best part!!  As part of the WITB Street Team I didn't just receive a free copy to review, I also received a copy to give away!  Just leave a comment here during the next week and I will pick a winner at random on May 14th to receive the free copy of What's in the Bible? Israel Gets a King.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Journey to Love Matt Mikalatos

Did you read Sky Lantern ? No? Well, go read it and then come back for this book. Yes, order them at the same time! I promise you, they'll both be worth it and they really are part of one another. Here's why, Matt Mikalatos lost a very dear friend, Shasta, he tells part of their story in Sky Lantern and fulfills a promise to with Journey to Love.  Journey to Love is a little book, almost a 40 day devotional with little vignettes of love and then ways for you to reflect that love and an exercise to grow in that aspect of love. It's not an easy book because love isn't an easy thing. the reflections and exercises sometimes take a few days to work through or a lifetime if we're honest.  I was touched by how Mikalatos decided to fulfill his promise to Shasta, how he managed to leave a little bit of their love on the written page for people to witness for years to come. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and challenging and rewarding. To be able to have a little glimpse
