What's In the Bible? Church Edition Review with Free Sample & Discount

I was recently invited to participate in a "blog tour" for the completed, "What's in the Bible? Church Edition" curriculum and offered a free DVD for participating. Since over the past few years I've kept an eye on the resources from Jelly Telly & What's in the Bible, I was happy for the opportunity to share this resource with you.

So, first of all, what is the, "What's in the Bible?" curriculum? Well, it is a 60-week resource which walks your children grades One through Four through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The focus is on building Bible skills; which is not something most curriculum focuses on. Solid Bible teaching is combined with the creativity we've come to expect from Phil Vischer for a resource which any church could use to help the children in their ministry have a much better understanding of not only what the Bible is all about, but how to find their way around the Bible as well.

What's in the Bible says; "The What's In The Bible? Church Edition is a 13-volume, 52-week curriculum which will take your children's ministry all the way through the Bible - Genesis to Revelation. Each volume contains 4 weeks of media-driven, fully customizable lessons. The "What’s in the Bible? Church Edition" is based on the bestselling DVD series from VeggieTales® creator Phil Vischer. Why should churches use it to take their children’s ministry through the whole Bible? More than just the greatest hits or most popular stories, the "What’s in the Bible? Church Edition" was designed to engage children in the whole narrative of God’s Word. The Bible is not a book of rules, but a book of rescue – the beautiful story of the Father who longs to be in relationship with every one of us, and who went to extraordinary measures to bring us into His Kingdom! When you start the lessons in the "What’s in the Bible? Church Edition", your students are not only beginning a journey through the Bible, but the lifelong journey of a relationship with the Living God."

Far too often the children in our ministries end up seeing their Bibles as a book they carry to class with them and then leave in the family van until the following Sunday. The "What's in the Bible?" curriculum is designed to help children understand and develop a love for God's Word, so regardless of what curriculum you use in your ministry, the "What's in the Bible? Church Edition" curriculum is an excellent resource to supplement, use at a special time (Sunday evenings), set aside for use with a particular grade every year, or build your mid-week or Summer ministry around.

Why What’s in the Bible?
1. It Builds Relationships - The curriculum encourages children to build rel4hat to do with the information they are learning, and how to put it into practice and grow in relationship with the God who made them.2. Bible Literacy - Phil, Buck Denver and friends journey through the whole Bible, not just hitting the highlights and most popular stories, but focusing on the overarching message of the Bible – the story of God and what He’s done for us.
3. It’s Easy and Customizable - For directors and volunteers, the curriculum couldn’t be easier. Customize every lesson with the included Word Doc leader guides. Volunteers can prep during the week through a special web site where they can view videos and read activities.
4. It Travels Home - Each week, children leave with a Go Home Card, which will start conversations between children and parents about what they are learning. The home video series is also the perfect way for families to dive deeper into what they are learning at church.
5. Unique Video from Phil Vischer - Featuring all-new videos alongside video from the bestselling What’s in the Bible? series from VeggieTales® creator Phil Vischer. 
I like how this resource combines solid teaching and engages children with humor and activity in a way children will remember. I also appreciate how "What's in the Bible?" teaches children how God's Word "connects" and treats children like they can actually learn and understand the Bible. Too often the Bible is presented as "stories"; but "What's in the Bible?" goes deep and past the "stories" to the reason we have the Bible - so we can know Who God Is and why He works in our lives.
