Fwd: Personal message from Phil Vischer

What's in the Bible
Hi there!

Phil Vischer here. I want to tell you about What's in the Bible?—the first new DVD project I have conceived from scratch since VeggieTales, and a project I can't wait to share with the world. The first 2 DVDs, In the Beginning and Let My People Go!, will be available March 1, but I wanted to take the time to tell you a little bit about why I am so excited about this series.

What's in the Bible? is, in a nutshell, an attempt to address declining biblical literacy in the North American church. VeggieTales was an amazingly effective way to teach individual Bible stories, but not abstract concepts like sin, redemption, or God's grace. Yet these concepts are the core of a meaningful faith. Christian colleges report that incoming freshmen—even those from Christian homes—know less about the Bible each year. And partly as a result of a lack of meaningful knowledge about their faith, 65 percent of Christian kids are walking away from the church as soon as they leave high school.

So, What's in the Bible? is a new 13-part series that will walk kids all the way through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Call it "Christianity 101"—a crash course in our faith, presented with the same wit and whimsy as VeggieTales.

God willing, this could be the start of something big. But we need your help. If What's in the Bible? is going to work, we need to find new ways to get people talking. You can start by watching the trailer at our Web site

Leaders like Chuck Colson have named biblical illiteracy as the biggest problem facing Christianity today and have called for nothing short of a "re-evangelization of the church." We cannot live what we do not know. Yet, with all the distractions of our culture competing for attention, we have a major battle ahead of us.

That's why friends like you are so important to us. Can we count on your help?

In His service,

Phil Vischer
