Description (Publisher Website)
Presenting a 13-DVD series from the creator of VeggieTales, Phil Vischer! Each DVD is filled with original music, animation, puppets, and creative writing that will teach kids about God and his Word. The first DVD introduces kids to the Bible and the book of beginnings, Genesis. Kids will learn about the key people in Genesis and the important lessons their stories teach us.

From the man who made vegetables talk (and sing, dance, and tell Bible stories), comes an engaging new series that walks kids through the entire Bible. What’s In the Bible? springs from Phil Vischer’s passion to reverse the trend of biblical illiteracy in the church. Unlike previous efforts to retell Bible stories, this 13-part DVD series explains the Bible—from Genesis to Revelation—in a format that is humorous and entertaining for children and adults alike.

In the Beginning and Let My People Go, the first two volumes of What’s In the Bible?, were released in March 2010 from Jellyfish Labs and Tyndale Kids.

In the Beginning introduces Buck Denver and his friends as they share how the first 11 chapters of Genesis set up the rest of the Bible—and all of life. Kids will learn the simple, yet challenging lesson that things go well when we listen to God, and go very badly when we don’t.

In Let My People Go, Buck Denver and friends introduce kids to Abraham and how God uses him to start a great nation called Israel. Through the stories of Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses, children will learn that they can always count on God and trust his promises.

The entertaining cast of characters explains what’s in the Bible, how it’s organized, who wrote it, and what it’s all about. Vischer does it all in an engaging format, using a mix of animation, puppets, live action, and music.

Each DVD includes two 25 to 30-minute episodes that each answer a different question about the Bible, such as:
  • Where did the Bible come from?
  • How did we get it?
  • Who wrote it?
  • How do we know we can trust it?
  • How do all the different books come together to tell one key story?
What’s In the Bible? continues the work Phil Vischer started 10 years ago with VeggieTales. While that series taught kids important values and Bible stories, What’s In the Bible? provides an overview of all the books of the Bible, what they mean, and how they affect our lives. Parents and children’s ministry leaders will appreciate how What’s In the Bible? lays the foundation for deeper biblical understanding in children, ages four to 84.

About Phil Vischer

In 1990, 24-year-old computer animator Phil Vischer sat down to create a group of characters that could teach Christian values to kids in a delightfully weird way. Hence, a tomato named Bob and a cucumber named Larry were born. VeggieTales would go on to revolutionize Christian filmmaking, selling more than 50 million videos and placing Phil's faith-filled stories in one in every three American households with young children. Phil is highly respected by key leaders across the Christian landscape, from Joel Osteen to James Dobson. His company, Jellyfish Labs, provides faith-based daily programming via the Internet at jellytelly.com. The characters from the What's in the Bible? series are featured, but the content is not specifically from the DVDs. Phil continues to pursue innovative ways to integrate faith and storytelling through Jellyfish Labs. He chose the name Jellyfish as a reminder to remain pliable to God's plans and not his own. Phil lives with his wife, Lisa, and their three kids in Illinois.

Both of these DVD's are absolutely delightful! As with Veggie Tales, Vischer has a definite cast of comical, yet loveable characters that both kids and adults will adore. The information on the DVD's both educates and entertains, and will be a staple in your household for years to come.

I adored these! I've been a fan of Veggie Tales for years, but What's In The Bible is not a VeggieTales knock off, it's definitely a stand alone series. And it's wonderful! Vischer is amazing. When it comes to taking something hard for kids to understand and creating something that is so much fun and entertaining, Vischer is pure genius.

These DVD's have been watched over and over since they arrived at my home, and they are still funny and still entertaining. I don't think I could even name a favorite character - they are all plain awesome!

This is an amazing series that teaches a wonderful message at the same time entertains.

Thanks to Tyndale for providing me copies for review.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
