Review of See the Light DVD's for Children8:17 PM
We haven't seen too many really good Bible-based DVD's lately. It's not that they aren't out there, but it's difficult to find any that hold the interest of ALL of my kids, and teach them something valuable at the same time. It's a delicate balance of keeping them entertained, without diluting the message they need to hear.
See the Light DVD's are a whole new ballgame, however. The one that we reviewed with my kids, The Crossmaker, was truly breathtaking. It uses chalk art to communicate a powerful story of Jesus while incorporating children and their questions into the lesson. Quite frankly, if you want your kid to hear the Gospel, understand, and come away inspired, these are the DVD's to try.
My youngest kids enjoyed the colors, music, and basic story line. My older kids were a little affected by the mild but truthful scenes depicting Jesus on the cross (it was a series of chalk drawings that told the story -- nothing graphic.) I even got choked up by how simple the message was. It's been a long time since I heard the salvation message in such a way that a child could really understand and embrace it! In addition to telling a touching story, the DVD offers an art lesson for kids so that they, too, can create a chalk artwork. This brings them into the story in a way that regular DVD's can't do.
Presented in 3 short videos (Discover the Light tells the story, Know the Light shares the plan of salvation, and Draw the Light gives the art lesson), this is a fantastic resource for Sunday schools, home churches, homeschools, or anyone who wants to impress the message of Jesus on their kids.
