I was provided a copy of “Introducing Theo: Teaching Children God’s Word” to review…which is extremly interesting. At first I thought maybe I got the wrong thing to review, or not the whole thing anyway, but then a fellow blogger / reviewer posted hers and I saw I did, in fact, get the correct / entire item. So, that was good. Why my confusion? Well, the dvd consists of two mini stories – the first is “Good News” and runs 5 minutes and the second is “Saving Faith” and runs 9 minutes. Thinking “short and sweet”? YOU GOT IT!

Bible Passage: Ephesians 4:32

Taken directly from the Theo Presents Facebook page:
The animation series of Theo guides children and adults through a careful study of systematic theology. Theo discusses doctrines about sin, God’s character, the Bible, salvation and godly living with easy-to-understand illustrations that make children want to learn more about the Christian faith.
This was taken from the website:
Theo was created to reach kids of all ages. The lessons and teachings of Theo can be used for Sunday school lessons, Christian school curriculum, missions, evangelism and homeschooling. The overall purpose of Theo Presents is to provide as many tools as possible to help present the Gospel to many kids and audiences around the world.
I found some really good information about this product over at Lifeway, which has to do with Theo curriculum…you can read it too by clicking HERE.
You can do a digital download of Episode 2: Loving Obedience or Episode 3: Forgiveness for $4.99. And Episode 4: The Amour of God – oh, it says it is “Coming Soon” [it will be approximately 10 minutes in length].
God’s Love, a 33 minute movie, will be releasing September 13th and you can purchase it HERE for $12.49.
We really enjoyed these little movies – the characters, animation, color and stories are wonderful. DS3 wanted to watch them both again right after he watched them the first time – always a sign of something being good. They are “short and sweet” as I said earlier. 🙂
