What’s in the Bible? Goes New Testament! {Giveaway}

The much anticipated TENTH volume of What’s in the Bible? has arrived and the timing is just perfect!

What’s in the Bible? Volume 10: Jesus is the Good News takes the series into the New Testament for the first time. The two 25-minute episodes cover time between the Old and New Testament, the four gospels and the life of Jesus here on earth.

This volume follows in the great tradition of What’s in the Bible?, providing lots of Bible information, heart application, music and laughter! The meaning of “New Testament,” the authors of the gospels,the life of Jesus, and much more are covered in the smart and witty Phil Vischer-style we’ve all come to love!

I mentioned the perfect timing because this DVD is a wonderful resource to share about Jesus’s death and resurrection during this Lent and Easter season! I was so moved by the way What’s in the Bible? handled this tough subject for kids – with music and sorrow and gratitude to Jesus for His sacrifice for our sins. I definitely teared up watching it. I also applaud What’s in the Bible? for including a call for salvation for kids AND adults in this volume, encouraging those who don’t know Jesus to talk to a friend or pastor. I pray this will reach and change many hearts for Him!


If your family hasn’t started your What’s in the Bible? collection yet, you can get a great deal on all TEN volumes that have been released through the rest of this month! Order volumes one through ten as a bundle and enter the code BUNDLE10 at checkout to get 20% off!

What’s in the Bible? Does Advent! {And It’s On Sale!}

Last year, What’s in the Bible? debuted their wonderful Why Do We Call It Christmas? DVD. It is full of great information about so many Christmas traditions and symbols – the boys and I watched it many times through the holiday season and learned so much. And we laughed. Because these guys are hilarious.

This year, Phil and the gang have put together another amazing resource, Everyday Emmanuel



What is Everyday Emmanuel? It’s a fun, easy-to-use family Christmas Countdown experience designed to help families make the most of Christmas and better understand the true meaning of the season. Our prayer is that Everyday Emmanuel will allow your family to spend intentional time together celebrating old and new traditions. Everyday Emmanuel makes it easy for your family to explore the meaning of Advent and offers you the opportunity to add a deeper spiritual meaning to the season by understanding how many of today’s traditions point directly back to Jesus – that indeed God is With Us (Emmanuel) everyday!

Available as a 68-page PDF download, Everyday Emmanuel includes all of the following:

  • Countdown to Christmas Calendar
  • Weekly Advent Devotionals & Ornament Activity
  • Weekly Big Questions About Christmas & Discussion Guide
  • Family Activity Ideas
  • Seven “print and use” activities
  • Online access to videos & additional resources
  • Helpful tips to save you time & money

I love the heart of this Advent resource. The activities included are great for families and will enhance your Advent celebration, not complicate it! We’ll be putting together our Countdown to Christmas calendar this month in preparation!

And in true What’s in the Bible? fashion, there is so much great information to learn! I know Everyday Emmanuel will be a great source of discussion with Big J this Advent season!

What’s in the Bible? is offering a great deal on their two fabulous Christmas products right now!


When you buy both Why Do We Call It Christmas? and Everyday Emmanuel and use the code CHRISTMAS50, you’ll get 50% off the retail price of both! That means just $14.99 for the DVD and the Advent guide! Just click on the coupon above to get started and enter the code on the last page of checkout!

This deal ends January 1, 2013, but get yours now to enjoy them for the Advent and Christmas season!


We’ll be doing Everyday Emmanuel along with Truth in the Tinsel and the Jesus Storybook Bible this Advent.

What are your Advent plans this year? Will you be using any of these resources?

What’s New from What’s in the Bible?! {Giveaway}

What’s in the Bible? has been busy, busy, busy making more DVDs and we are LOVING. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

Volumes 7, 8, and 9 round out What’s in the Bible’s overview of the Old Testament and they are all available now!

Volume 7: Exile and Return covers the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. I just love the story of Esther and What’s in the Bible? dedicates an entire episode to this book. Totally loved it.

Volume 8: Words to Make Us Wise tackles Psalms, Proverbs, and The Writings, including Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon. Oh, the hilarity that ensues when a show for kids tries to explain Song of Solomon…

And Volume 9: The Prophets wraps up the Old Testament by providing a very in-depth {but still fun) explanation of the prophets and their place in Biblical history! The boys have been walking around for days saying “Repent! Repent! snooze…” You’ll just have to watch it because it is totally awesome!

What’s in the Bible? is the best of both of worlds – the kids {and I} are completely entertained AND we are all learning so much about the Bible as we go! These DVDs are also a major part of our Bible curriculum for homeschool, especially for church and Biblical history.

And if you haven’t started your own What’s in the Bible? collection, now is the time! We’re giving away THREE COPIES of Volume 1 right here!

Just leave a comment here to be entered!

For optional additional entries, share this post on Facebook, Twitter, and/or your blog! Leave a separate comment for each way you share!

This giveaway ends Monday, August 20th at 9:00 p.m. CST! Three winners will be chosen at random and notified by email!

If you are ready to buy any of the DVDs, just click here to get 20% off your order! What a sweet deal!

An Interview with Phil Vischer!

I’m not excited about this at all…nope, not at all…oh wait, yes I am…

Phil Vischer is my hero.

How did parents ever get by before his creations, Veggie Tales and What’s in the Bible?!

Recently, I had the awesome opportunity to ask Mr. Vischer a few questions and I couldn’t wait to share his answers with you! I hope you enjoy hearing more from him as much as I did!


Q: Which character {that you’ve created} is your favorite? Why?

Phil: I love all my characters equally!  (That’s the political answer – don’t want them to get mad.)  Actually, the characters I enjoy performing the most are probably Mr. Lunt from Veggie Tales and Sunday School Lady from What’s in the Bible.  They can both get away with saying just about anything, which makes performing them – especially in live settings – a lot of fun.

Q: What are the biggest differences between Veggie Tales and What’s in the Bible? {other than the obvious cartoon vs. puppet thing!}

Phil: Really the teaching intent.  Veggie Tales had one overall spiritual message (“God made you special and he loves you very much”), which was aimed at very young kids.  Beyond that message, Veggie Tales was focused on individual Bible stories and individual Christian values.  What’s in the Bible is much deeper spiritually, for kids who are ready for more than just a basic “God loves you” message.  Walking kids all the way through the Bible and explaining everything – even the tough parts – is quite an undertaking.

Q: How did your own children influence your work with Veggie Tales and What’s in the Bible?

Phil: I watched them watching kids media, and longed for something different.  So much of what kids see on TV is just a diversion.  No character-shaping or spiritual development goals at all.  It just seemed like we could do a lot better.  So that’s what I set out to do, both for my own kids, and for everyone else’s.

Q: What are some of your family’s Christmas traditions?

Phil: Well, there’s this tree, and all these decorations… and there’s presents….  Actually we don’t have a lot of family-specific traditions.  I’m not a big “event” guy – I tend to focus more on day-to-day living – so I don’t go out of my way to create very unique holidays.  My wife will tell you, with a hint of frustration in her voice, that I prefer the routine of day-to-day over the special occasions.  (Read:  Birthdays, anniversaries, etc.)  Thus not a whole lot of unique traditions around holidays.  Though my kids and I do enjoy getting our tree every year from the same local park that’s completely decked out in lights and serves free hot chocolate.  That’s a lot more fun than just grabbing a tree from the Home Depot parking lot.

Q: Any tips for getting boys more interested in the Bible?

Phil: Gee, I’d recommend something like What’s in the Bible!  Seriously, most of our kids’ Bibles and kids’ spiritual content is extremely soft.  Dare I say “feminine” in tone.  That works fine for preschool boys, but once you hit kindergarten you want to start separating yourself from preschool “softness.”  Boys start pursuing super heroes and sport stars – symbols of strength.  I think it’s a shame when boys associate the Bible with softness, and discard that along with The Pokey Little Puppy and Pat the Bunny.  That’s partly why What’s in the Bible has a bit of an edge – comically at least.  We’re saying to boys, “Hey!  There’s nothing ‘soft’ about the Bible!”  I think it’s an important message.

A HUGE thank you to Mr. Vischer for the taking time out of his busy schedule to share with us!


And while we’re on the topic of the brain children of Phil Vischer, might I remind you about the awesome deal available on the What’s in the Bible? DVDs right now?!
