I bought these DVDs for my children with some doubts - Phil Vischer also produced Veggie Tales which I wash't such a fan of. I needn't have worried. These are brilliant! There is plenty of humour, which may not be everyone's preference on a series about the bible, but I feel that the balance between content and humour is right. Light-hearted it is, lightweight it is not, covering big issues such as the selection of books for the canon, and why so many people are killed in Joshua. This is a series that has really blessed our family as we have watched them together.
