Review: Basic DVD series by Francis Chan

Francis chan has this series of dvds that are called “Basic” there is 7 dvds in all and they are about 10 minutes a piece. Its more of a small group discussion type of thing. But there isn't any reason why you couldn't watch them by yourself and contemplate them yourself, or with a friend or spouse also.

“Trends come and go in our culture and the church seems to follow. BASIC is a seven-part series of short films that challenges us to reclaim the church as Scripture describes it to be. This series speaks to those who have questions about the church and to those who may have lost interest in the church.
What is church?
You are church.
I am church.
We are church.

The DVD's in the series are:

“Fear God”
“Follow Jesus”
“Holy Spirit”

i thought that these were really awesome. the 2nd and 3rd ones i didn't get into as much as the rest. from the 4th through the 7th dvd they were really eye catching and you really just wanted to follow through with the rest of the story as it played out. but also Francis Chan always has great things to say. He is such a great speaker so this series is just good by itself even without a small group discussion like its really meant for. i suggest you check these out in a small group or just alone they are awesome. thank you to David Cook for providing these to review!
