If you like history, or travel, or Biblical knowledge and history, then you really must check out Israel's Mission 5 Lessons on Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World, written by Ray Vander Laan. This is a really interesting and fun study that delves deep into the the historical context of the Bible. Used with the coordinating study guide, this is a really fun and unique product that I recommend you checking out.

How I used this:
Wishing to polish up on my own knowledge, I decided to use this product on my own and not as a family unit....just to begin at least. I will be going back and watching again with my fiance in the near future. We all really enjoy history programs, and I especially enjoy Biblical history. This is exactly what I was hoping for. The filmography here makes you feel as if you are really traveling along in this history exploration journey. I was very impressed with the daily lesson suggestions in the study guide, as well as how well the study guide was written and put together. It is a great resource to use with the DVD set and I wouldn't want to be without it, personally. While I chose to do this as a solo exploration, I think it would be fantastic to use as a group study or even a family study. I could see this being a great Women's Group study! It's just a lot of interesting facts and beautiful artistry in the film.
