We were introduced to this series of DVDs in the mid 1990's at church and began buying them for our family. At first we used them for homeschooling Bible studies but we continued watching them over and over. Back then they were VHS and lately we've had problems with them wearing out and getting stuck in the VCR so we just ordered the first five again, this time on DVD. That's how good they are. We have all 12 and the study guides that go along with them and just continue to watch them in order from start to finish and never tire of them. Ray Vander Laan is an incredible, humble, insightful teacher and teaches from his heart as well as his mind. The scripture becomes much more real as he explains different cultures, customs and meanings of the Bible. Even though we have watched them many times it seems we still learn something new each time that we didn't pick up on before. Can't recommend these highly enough. Every time we get a catalog from CBD I open it first to these DVDs to check and see if #13 has arrived yet. We will continue to purchse them. It's the best Bible teaching my husband and I have ever received and we've been in church all our lives.

This is the second volume in the Faith Lesson series we have purchased. Although we have not finished viewing this product, so far we feel it is very well done. We have two special Bible Study groups at our church. Some participants feel they want to visit the Holy Land, but probably will not be able to. One reason we purchased this product was to see the Holy Land up close via DVD. The other reason, of course, is to learn more about the Bible. We are very happy with the purchase of both volumes.

Our study group has been using the Ray VanderLaan series, "That the World May Know" for several months and enjoy every lesson. We are about to begin volume 6--"In the Dust of the Rabbi". Thank you for a great product.

Ray Vander Laan is a great Bible teacher, and the lessons are so much more meaningful, in that they are taught right from the Holy Land. My class has been especially responsive to the study - we have two (2) weeks to go - hate to see it end!

My husband and I teach an adult Sunday School class. We watched the first lesson on this DVD today and were quite impressed. The members of our class believe it will be an excellent study. We will probably choose to watch and learn from more of Ray VanderLaan's Bible studies.

This is a gem of information and the whole series is a must-have for seekers of Biblical knowledge. I have bought all the videos and on showing them to friends they have all followed my example. An investment I will never regret.

Excellent on-site studies, that add interesting insight to the related scripture texts, providing historical background, as well as the thought provoking perspective of Vander Laan.

Ray Vander Laan is an anointed teacher for "such a time as this". Get this and don't hesitate. These; That the World May Know, Faith Lessons, volumnes 1 through 7, are worth MORE than my weight in gold.
