What’s In the Bible with Buck Denver (and friends): In the Beginning, v. 1 by Phil Vischer (2010)

Over the past several months, I've fallen in love (so have my little girls) with a new DVD series title What's In the Bible with Buck Denver. The first several of what will be a 13-DVD overview of the Bible was released beginning in the summer of 2010.

The videos contain the kind of silly songs and general cleverness that you'd expect from the creator of Veggie Tales (but this time told with puppets and live action characters in addition to animation), but it doesn't focus on the simple character lessons that the old Veggie Tales videos did.  Instead, the new series gives an overview of the entire Bible with a focus on God's redemption story, that is, "the story of God and what He's done for us."

Beginning in mid-August of 2011, SojournKids will be studying the book of Genesis.  I'll be featuring a lot of great resources that we'll be using in our classrooms and that you can use at home.  Even though that is a long way away, I thought I'd whet your appetite with a little bit of Genesis in this first week of the year.  Here is a great Genesis overview song from What's in the Bible? that I'm certain we'll use at least once in the months to come:
