Phil Vischer’s “What's in the Bible?” DVDs

What's in the  Bible?While on a recent family vacation I pulled out an advance DVD of the first episodes of Phil Vischer’s “What’s in the Bible” (whatsinthebible.com).

Planning Your New Year and Making God’s Word a Priority

Our choices show what we value most: TV, internet, sports, hobbies or God’s Word? “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).
