This DVD has four half-hour programs to introduce the Bible. Program 1: Getting Acquainted--It's the all-time best-seller since the beginning of printing. It has produced passionate controversy for centuries. What is the book that is like none other in the history of the world? Where did it come from? What does it come from? What does it consist of? Does it still speak to us today? Program 2: The Old Testament--An ancient book? Yes, but far more! It's a kind of love letter and a still-living legacy that shaped the identity of a unique people. What about the Dead Sea Scrolls? The accurate preservation of the contents over millennia underscores the marvel of these writing. Program 3: The New Testament--It's a book that centers on Jesus. But how do we know we have the actual words of Jesus? How were the books of the New Testament gathered and selected? What's it all about? How does the New Testament build upon but differ from the Old Testament? Program 4: Survival, Spread and Influence--Despite attempts of tyrants to destroy it, the Bible has endured and become the most translated and circulated book ever. It was translated into various art forms and given to us in English through heroic efforts. It's the book that influenced the lives that infleunced the world.

Is truly an intro to the Bible for people who don't know anything about it. It was made many years ago (shows 3" floppy disks as latest technology) but the fundamental information is there and presented well. Good for stimulating discussion with nonbelievers or new believers though even those well acquainted with the Bible will learn something.
