We’re excited to announce that Phil Vischer is going to be participating at the Orange Conference (link https://www.theorangeconference.com/) hosting a screening of their latest product. Here’s a letter from Phil, a picture with his new cast of characters and a video trailer for a sneak peek!
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 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 of their faith, 65% 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. We don’t have near the marketing budgets we had at the peak of VeggieTales, and foot traffic in Christian bookstores is significantly lower. So 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 website (www.whatsinthebible.com).
