Editorial Reviews

BASIC.FEAR GOD is the first film in a seven-part short film series from the creators of NOOMA featuring Francis Chan.

To understand the relationship between God and man, we turn to those who have directly interacted with Him in the Bible. In each case, they are met with fear. Not respect, reverence or courage, but sheer speechlessness, humility, and complete surrender. They are overcome with pure fear and many of them cry out to be destroyed.

Most people today have lost this fear. We must understand that a true fear of God leads to the keeping of His commandments, leads to life, and is the beginning of wisdom.

Everyone who has come face-to-face with  God falls over in fear. Do you think you'd do anything different?

I am a youth Pastor, and I have never used a Francis Chan study for my students until this title. It was a great video fueling a good discussion of the Scriptures among my students. I highly recommend this resource, primarily on the basis of its shameless biblical foundation. Scripture is quoted and expanded upon throughout the whole video, which is a refreshing entrance to the fluff, and entertainment-based material that is so prevalent. Use this resource and be blessed by God through His word.

I enjoyed this very much. I was looking forward to this coming out because Chan is a great author and I think he is a solid dude. Only thing that was bad was how short it was, but it definitely has the potential to spark conversation in a small group setting; which i think is the point of the video - in which case it serves its purpose.

John recorded in Revelation chapter 1 his encounter with the risen Christ:
Rev. 1:12-17 "Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me... One like the Son of Man ... and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me..."
Henry comments: "The impression this appearance of Christ made upon the apostle John: He fell at the feet of Christ as dead; he was overpowered with the greatness of the lustre and glory in which Christ appeared, though he had been so familiar with him before. How well is it for us that God speaks to us by men like ourselves, whose terrors shall not make us afraid, for none can see the face of God and live! [Then] the condescending goodness of the Lord Jesus to his disciple: He laid his hand upon him, He raised him up; he did not plead against him with his great power, but he put strength into him..."

And in "Basic. Fear God" Francis Chan offers a potent and stirring DVD that will open the viewer's eyes while edifying your soul. The music touches without distracting and the speaker is clear, concise, personable, and with compassion he gently presses the essential truth of scripture: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom."

The speaker asserts that "the fear of the Lord, hundreds of times in scripture, doesn't mean mere respect; it sure looks like fear to me. And when people came in contact with this God, it sure appears after [the contact] that they are terrified of this God."

Within this deeply impacting teaching series one will discover:

- What does scriputre indicate when it commands people to fear God?
- What is the difference between fear of the Lord and mere respect or reverence?

Format: DVD
As one of the primary people responsible for finding small group curriculum for my church, I have found that videos work particularly well in the summer when regular attendance and outside study both take a vacation. Last summer, for instance, we worked our way through some of the Nooma videos by Rob Bell. However, if I may be honest, I have found something I am even more excited about for this coming summer.

Francis Chan has begun a new video project called BASIC that lends itself perfectly to the small group (both teen and adult) and addresses the fundamental building blocks for the Christian life and the Church. These videos are visually exquisite, intellectually stimulating and theologically solid.

The BASIC videos are being created by a group called Flannel, the same organization that did the Nooma series. However, based on the videos I've seen so far, they have outdone themselves on this current project.

One of the elements that sets these short 15 minute videos apart is the secondary story that takes place as Chan presents his material. The picture cuts between Chan and other characters that give us a sort of visual "parable" of what Chan is describing (trust me, it's not as confusing or distracting as it sounds).

Fear God is the first video in the BASIC series and it lays the groundwork for the videos that follow. Chan addresses some misconceptions surrounding the idea of the fear of the Lord, but also affirms some of the more challenging aspects at the same time. In the end, however, this fear should drive us away from self-sufficiency and toward the only one who can save us, God.

This will be a stellar series and I look forward to the future releases and using these videos in my own ministry!
