Bluefish TV Uprising DVD Kit

It seems like anyone you talk to these days desires change. They wish they looked different, had a different job, or were better at this thing or that thing. What you've probably discovered is that you can change your appearance, your habits, your friends, your job. but you can't change your character. At least, not on your own.

In this small group Bible study, Erwin McManus teaches us that there's one thing you can't change about yourself and that's your character. Only Christ can transform us from the inside. In each of the six video sessions, Erwin provides Biblical and practical teaching that will challenge your small group to allow God to transform their character to be more like His.

Out of all Erwin's teaching he told us that Uprising is what they the use most at his church in Los Angeles to help people work through Biblical transformation. Hearing that from Erwin made us excited to take that great content and put it into a resource that could be used by churches in their Sunday morning classes and small group ministries across the country.

SHORT: Great resource that is very relevant to today and easy to use. Little to much advertising for Bluefish in the material for my taste.LONG: I purchased this product as the first study for a new lunchtime group at work. While I have not held the first session yet I have reviewed all the video content and been through the leader's guide and workbook. The messages contained in the 6 sessions and the subjects are very relevant to society today. I do not think there is one person whether unbeliever, new christian or old that could not benefit. The presentation style is engaging. The personal sharing of both McManus and the video segment subjects drive the message home. The nice part about this is it does not come across as you being preached at. Rather it refreshingly takes you by the hand and walks with you. The leader's guide is very well arranged and has excellent comments and suggestions for leading small groups. The workbooks are not an afterthought just put in the box. They work in harmony with the sessions to guide the discussion. They accomplish this by taking the message of the video and guiding you though the biblical references that address it. It creates a harmony of sharing, video and biblical foundations.So with that praise of the series you might as why the 3.5 stars. The only drawback to me was the advertisements peppered through out the material. Each DVD opens with such. The commentator prominently displays a Bluefish job title. At the beginning of each session and end there is an advertisement for Bluefish. Each DVD has a trailer that is an advertisement and another section that contains "other titles" from Bluefish. Finally, the leaders guide and workbooks each contain advertisements in them. I only mention this since for the cost of the course I would not have expected that level. A simply section on 1 DVD promoting bluefish that I could choose to watch or not would have been sufficient and more classy in my opinion.
