DVD #3 … and off to England!

We just got a couple of cases of DVD #3 in the office here in Wheaton, and they look great. They should be arriving at your local Christian bookstore any time now. If you can’t find them there, you can order from our own website starting on Monday. DVD #3 finishes the Pentateuch, and ends with a big musical number with a whole mess o’ puppets on a riverboat that summarizes the first five books of the Bible. It’s a hoot. We also spend a lot of time explaining to kids exactly what the word “holy” means, and why it was so important to God that Israel practice all his laws for holiness. It’s really interesting stuff, and I actually learned a lot myself doing the research!

In related news, Lisa and I are off to jolly old England on Monday to officially launch What’s in the Bible in the UK! Neither of us have ever been (amazing considering all the British characters I’ve put into my films over the years), and we’re really excited. I’ll be speaking at the big UK childrens ministry conference next week, and our UK distributor Kingsway will be premiering the first DVD in an old, classic theater in downtown London on Wednesday. If you’re in the UK, stop by and say “cheerio!” (My wife keeps saying, “Promise me you won’t talk with a British accent the entire week.” I’m going to try really hard, but I really love British accents.)

Fun stuff! DVD #4 is going into production as we speak – it takes us through Joshua, Judges and Ruth. (“What’s with all the KILLING?!?” Fun!)

Onward and upward!

We got your first DVD at the Christian Resources Exhibition last month in Surrey (England) and have since ordered and seen the second. Just wanted to say that our two children (Taliesin, 11 and Melangell, 8) think they are great. Taliesin is autistic and he really related well. BTW - trying to be helpful here - there are many British accents (a huge variety within England itself). Do remember though that there are 4 nations within the UK and 3 within Britain. The Scots, Welsh and Irish get somewhat annoyed when England is used to mean Britain or the other way around! Blessings on all you do

Just so you know... in England 'cheerio' means 'goodbye', not 'hello'. 'Watcha mate!' would be a better alternative. Now you can blend in with the locals...

#3 is as wonderful as #1 & #2! Thanks, again, for such great resources to tell kids about the Bible in ways they can understand! And, I picked up a pointer for myself....on what is NOT a good way to end a motivational speech!! Blessings as you continue telling His Story!
