All posts in What’s in the Bible?

iPad, you Pad, we all Pad…

Okay, I got an iPad.  On day one.  It wasn't my plan… I don't know what happened.  I was going to wait and let other people go first – let other people remind us why we shouldn't buy "generation 1" of any new product.  But then the glowing reviews started to hit… then I found myself in the vicinity of a Best Buy… found myself calling just to see if Read More...

Big Bang fun

Hey – the conversation about the Big Bang, etc. in the comments of my last post was very interesting!  Lots of opinions, lots of very bright people chiming in.  My favorite thing about the conversation is that it was entirely civil. No one lambasting anyone else for having a different opinion, which seems to me to have become a somewhat rare thing in our culture today. Several people made the Read More...

The Bible and the “Big Bang”

If you've watched "What's in the Bible?" #1, you probably noticed that I made a very brief, joking reference to the "big bang theory" when we talk about Creation.  I've had a few fans write to complain about the joke, because they believe the big bang theory is anti-Christian, and therefore shouldn't be mentioned in any way in a Christian video.  At first I was surprised by the response, since Read More...

#3 is done – and a great quote from a kid

Hey ho – after much tweaking, What's in the Bible #3 has left the building!  It's off to the duplicators and should be in stores before Father's Day.  The fearsome beasts of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy have been slayed, and, hopefully, rendered at least moderately understandable for kids!  (We'll see how that goes once they get to watch it, of course.) Speaking of kids, we just picked up this great Read More...

Really fun review

Well,  What's in the Bible episodes 1 & 2 are officially out now, and we're having fun reading some of the early reviews.  This is a really cute one that a dad blogger wrote with his kids… check it out here. I got to show the entire first DVD (nearly an hour long in total) at the Assemblies of God National Children's Ministry Conference last week in St. Louis, and Read More...

WITB sightings in the “wild”

Well, some of you may have been surprised walking into your local Christian bookstores over the last week to see Buck Denver's big face on a display full of brand new "What's in the Bible?" DVDs.  It seems the first batch of manufactured copies was sent out to stores more than a week ago, and most stores just started setting them out and selling them.  So that thing I said Read More...

I’m a little bit hoarse…

… because I spent four hours in a room with an 80 year-old Sunday School teacher.  Well, okay, she's a puppet.  Named Sunday School Lady.  I'm filming scenes for the third "What's in the Bible?" DVD, and I had to cover about 20 pages of script with Sunday School Lady yesterday, which left me a little hoarse.  (It'd be more fun if it left me with a little horse, but Read More...

Is God in this?

This morning in my devotions I was rereading the notes I had taken from Henry Blackaby's study on the book of Samuel, and I came across this quote from Mr. Blackaby: "To tell the people that He is with us in all of His power when there is no evidence of it in our lives is a betrayal to God's people." This convicted me when I first read it 7 Read More...

Wow – that went fast!

Whoa, hey wow.  The 50 DVDs went very quickly!  So… we'll try to let you know if you were one of the first 50 to request a "What's in the Bible?" sample DVD, and we'll be sending out those DVDs in the next few days. And remember the deal:  If you get one, you need to watch it and share it with your friends!  Pass it around your church, if Read More...

Wanna Check out “What’s in the Bible?”

Okay – I'm sitting in a hotel room in very chilly Southern California getting ready to speak at a children's ministry conference in a few hours, but I wanted to get you this news as soon as possible. First, the release date for the first two DVDs in our new series has been moved up to March 1st, so America will get to meet a whole new way to teach Read More...
