Is any religious educator or parent out there familiar with “The Animated Stories from the Bible” put out by NEST Family Entertainment? I am previewing some of these cartoon DVDs to supplement the children religious ed. program at my parish. They seem pretty close to the scriptural accounts for both the Old Testament and New Testament. They claim to be non-sectarian in their interpretation/presentation of Scripture and they have a Jewish Rabbi, a few Protestants, and a Catholic scholar from Notre Dame on their advisory board. Ignatius Press carries this product which leads me to believe that it probably does not conflict with Church teaching. Anyone have any experience and comments on this?
I am really trying to give a good scriptural base to our parish ed. programs.
