My ONLY complaint is that the speakers are not looking at the camera..they are looking out in the distance....doesn't seem as 'engaged' as I would have liked...but they are all knowledgeable and terrific! My class enjoyed this series.

My husband and I facilitate different Bible studies.We have reviewed the DVD and the workbookfor our groups and we both think they are greatly informative. We enjoyed the change of teachers, as well as the several breaks for discussion. We believe it will stir up interesting, open dialog within the participants.

I have been leading a Men's Wednesday Night Group using this video series. Our group has found this series to be informative and has led to some very interesting discussion to real life application. We have enjoyed the background information given about Jesus' day and how the societal differences play a part in the meaning of scripture.We have enjoyed the way that the series mixes up teachers, each bringing their own style and perspective. The book itself is very good for note taking and weekly review, but I would not say it is a must have for going through the video series.I recommend the series both for personal and group study and have enjoyed and learned from it. I look forward to exploring the Parables and Miracles series as well.

I must respectfully disagree with Lawrence. My small group also used this DVD series and were greatly blessed through the visual aids of the DVD and the content in the participants guide (I would highly recommend using both for a small group study). Also, I can understand being frustrated with unmet expectations, but this Bible study never claims to have extensive footage of the Holy Land. Lastly, I'm curious what background (or church) Lawrence comes from/is a part of. My small group was very grateful for the historical and biblical insights the teachers provided and in the end agreed with their interpretations. I have many other friends who have also used the DVDs in small group settings and no one else have questioned the interpretations. I would highly recommend this study to anyone who is part of a small group and would like to add greater depth to their understanding of the Bible's context and meaning for their lives.

I was very disappointed with the DVD that goes with the Participant Guide as I expected more picture and footage of the Holy Land. It only contains about two minutes on each teaching session. I fould that I was at odds with the interpertation of the scriptures to the point I called regarding returning the product but was advised once open it could not be returned. I purchased as a teaching tool for a small group but this DVD is not usable for my Sunday School Class.
