Drive Thru History® Adventures: Bible Unearthed Review

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

Archeology wasn't something I think I would ever find interesting, but this week's opportunity to review the Bible Unearthed video course from Drive Thru History® Adventures had me reconsidering! See what my family loved about this unique and exciting video series with complete study resources!

What is Bible Unearthed?

As part of the Drive Thru History Adventures series of videos, the Bible Unearthed component was the first we had seen as a family. We didn't know what to expect, but I was immediately taken by how simple the format was. You log in, see your course videos and resources, and dive in! The 12-part series includes videos, as well as a printable discussion guide with questions and answers for each video lesson. We did this course 2 times a week with our family, watching the videos together, and then using the discussion questions to answer together and get an additional conversation going. My kids ages 10, 13, and 15 participated.

What did we like?

As I mentioned, the format is simple. I was able to cast the video from my computer to our family room TV for everyone to watch, but you can watch this on most any device. We sat and watched the videos and then had a family-style learning conversation. The videos have a good balance of humor (with one host acting a bit silly throughout) and scholarly discussion. The special guest/expert Dr. Titus Kennedy, who is young but educated and easy for the kids to identify with. He brings so much passion to the field of archeology, and really had my kids understanding why it's an important field from both a scientific and Biblical perspective.

Each video discusses an important topic, such as "why do we study archeology", as well as features slideshows or videos with real footage from one of Dr. Kennedy's expeditions. Kids can see just what goes on at a dig site and how the findings from these projects shape our understanding of the world today. As someone who loves logic and facts, this is a very fascinating way to support our existing theories about how history lines up with Biblical Scripture.

There is also a Bible verse at the end of each lesson to read and reference. While the Bible is integrated naturally into the lessons, it's not a Bible study. I quite liked this aspect, as we were looking for a science/history heavy course to take with the kids at this time. 

Bible Unearthed Review Summary

If you are a Bible-believing family with an interest in out how history, literature, Biblical study, and sociology intersect, you'll love this series. It can be used as solely a video resource for younger kids, who should enjoy the friendly banter between hosts and the lively photos. Older kids can join in on the discussion topics and answer questions. Tweens and teens could do this on their own as a semester course, assuming you print out the questions and check them for them.
