What’s in the Bible Blog Tour – Review and Giveaway!!



I recently received the first two episodes of this new series from Tyndale Publishers. The series, which is called “What’s in the Bible?” was created by Phil Vischer who also created the wildly popular Veggie Tales series.

The episodes are fast moving and have fun, quirky characters that will draw children in. Phil himself is in each episode too, answering various questions that arise about the Bible.

It’s a bit like a lesson on the Bible itself – how we got it, who determined which books would be in it, etc. And then a story from the Bible itself; The first episode’s Bible story is the creation of the world, the fall, and Noah’s Ark. The Bible story in the second episode is about Moses and the Exodus of God’s people from Egypt.

There are some parts of the stories that I felt were inappropriate for someone my son’s age (3 1/2). This isn’t because anything was done improperly by the writing team, but simply because some of the scenes of the Bible (such as Joseph being sold, Abraham about to offer Isaac as a sacrifice, etc) are something a 3 year old can not comprehend without being terrified. Also, the “lesson” about the Bible at the beginning of each episode is a bit over a preschooler’s head, in my opinion.

I think children 5 years and older would love these dvds, and I highly recommend them for that age.
Thank you to Tyndale for providing me with this review copy free of charge.

See more about this fun new series at the What’s in the Bible? website. There is a trailer here. And some coloring pages here

Here’s the great part… Tyndale has sent me two certificates for free dvds to give away to my readers!! Because there is one certificate for the first episode, and one certificate for the second episode, I’m giving them both to one winner! :) Only US and Canadian entries, please (sorry!).
