Aren’t they great? I have the whole set. I bought it on a splurge really… just felt they were so amazing and I wanted them as a tool for evangelization… lend them out to family and friends to watch, plus as something to refresh my memory of aspects of the faith.
The thing I like best about the series is that it brings to life- REAL life- the life of Christ and His followers. You get to see where He walked and taught and the explanations from Steve Ray are really helpful to get a clear sense of what it was like in that day. Its too easy to start thinking of faith as being dull and flat, but this series plumps it back to life in abundance. Its rich. I suppose it might just be me that has that problem, but I kind of doubt it. it seems most people don’t understand their religion or think of it as boring or just ‘something you do’ or ‘have to do’. I’m still learning of course and still have my problems, but this series helps me keep away from dryness.
I’m still trying to get my family to watch them. Someday soon, I hope I will get them to sit down and watch. Unfortunately they think anything ‘religious’ would be stuffy or arrogant or dry and boring. I wish they knew what they were missing!
