This set comes in a book format with a nice cover. It would make a great gift for someone! Included in side the book are the DVDs as well as pages with beautiful pictures, Bible verses as suggested reading that correspond with the videos and study questions that go along. There are many Bible studies out there and the Gospels are books that are studied often. With this series there are study guides already made and would make a great high school or adult Bible Study!
Living out in the rural area we do, we usually spend one day a week going to "the city" to run errands, since most things are about an hour away. Once we received the Drive Through History DVD set, “Mom I know we don’t usually watch anything in the car, unless we are going on vacation, but can we watch The Gospels as we run around?" Was something that my daughter had said several times. My kids couldn't get enough of it! They begged me to stay in the car!
History had always been a struggle for me in school. For some reason the information never wanted to stick in my head. Maybe if there would have been a series like this it would have stuck better for me? I don’t know, however I do know that I am thankful for this for my children. It breaks up the monotony of the books during the day. Thru the humor that Dave adds into the DVD's, the scenery from his travels, and the factual information this series provides it makes it fun and interesting to learn about Jesus' life!
We have enjoyed this series as many other Drive Thru History episodes. I actually got to meet Mr Stotts as well at the Midwest Homeschool Convention. It was such a pleasure to talk with him and meet the man in the TV, as my kids say!
From Drive Thru History:
"General age range is 5th grade-adult, however there are many younger kids who love to show too! We like to say that while the entire family will enjoy the TV show as family entertainment, the optimal age for getting the max educational value is middle school and older. Our target audience is Christian families who wish to teach their children history from a Christian worldview. While most of our viewers are homeschooled, many private and public school students enjoy the show as well."
