What's in the Bible? with Buck Denver by Phil Vischer

From the creator of VeggieTales, Phil Vischer. Phil is now taking your kids through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation in this series. I was honored to be able to review Vol. 1-3 of this series. Each DVD is filled with original music, animation, and puppets that will teach kids about God and His Word. My personal opionion I never could get into Veggie Tales. I just couldn't get into seeing vegetables talking and all.

Your child will meet:
  • Buck Denver
  • Bro. Louie
  • Captain Pete, the Pirate
  • Pastor Paul
  • The Sunday School Lady
  • Chuckwagon, the Cowboy
  • Clide & Ein
  • a Scientist
  • Bentley brothers
  • and more
These characters are quite cute muppet type characters. Dialog takes place between the characters and Mr. Phil ; reminded me alot of "Christian Sesame Street". Each episode is divided into two 25-30 minutes viewing sessions. I believe I'll add these to our Church library for others to check out and use.

In What’s In the Bible? #3: Wanderin’ in the Desert, Buck Denver and his cast of friends take us through the next three books of the Bible—Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy—helping kids understand how these books fit in with Genesis and Exodus to make up the Pentateuch and to set the stage for the trials and victories of God’s people. The question “Did this stuff really happen?” is also answered. Closed captions. Approx. 58 minutes.

Phil Vischer

In 1990, 24-year-old computer animator Phil Vischer sat down to create a group of characters that could teach Christian values to kids in a delightfully weird way. Hence, a tomato named Bob and a cucumber named Larry were born. VeggieTales would go on to revolutionize Christian filmmaking, selling more than 50 million videos and placing Phil's faith-filled stories in one in every three American households with young children. Phil is highly respected by key leaders across the Christian landscape, from Joel Osteen to James Dobson. His company, Jellyfish Labs, provides faith-based daily programming via the Internet at The characters from the What's in the Bible? series are featured, but the content is not specifically from the DVDs. Phil continues to pursue innovative ways to integrate faith and storytelling through Jellyfish Labs. He chose the name Jellyfish as a reminder to remain pliable to God's plans and not his own. Phil lives with his wife, Lisa, and their three kids in Illinois.

  1. What a fabulous fun Biblical education for children. These would be such wonderful descriptions of how God loves you for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren to watch. I'd be right there with them....with my eyes glued to the screen. Thanks for learning about this great author.
