Format: DVD
Thanks to What's in the Bible, we had a chance to sit down and watch it with some of our friends and have a party of sorts. We always love an excuse to have friends over! Our kids were so excited when the package arrived with the latest installment and especially excited to share it with their friends.

After watching Exile and Return, we grabbed some snacks and sat down to color together. The DVD also comes with a coloring sheet that can be photocopied to share with your children. Inside the case are questions that you can review with your kids after the video to see what they have learned and remember as well.

Our verdict? We loved Exile and Return: Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther! The humor and quality are similar to the other videos in the What's in the Bible line and ones that we will hang onto. It's been in our house a week and has already been seen two other times!

One of the things that I personally have been most excited about with the DVDs from What's in the Bible is how they are fitting in with our history curriculum, Mystery of History. As the girls and I sat down to watch Exile and Return again later in the week, so much of the history that they were explaining in the DVD {about the country of Assyria, for example} just clicked with the girls because of what we've been studying in history. Having a fun visual to add another dimension to their history studies was a huge help!

There isn't a better way to learn the Bible as a little kid then with these videos! I learn so much as an adult too! Entertaining, educational and accurate!

The best teaching of the Bible and the plan of Salvation I have ever found for kids. I started buying the series when my granddaughter was just 3. She didn't get it at first but as I had her I would play them for her over and over again, I also bought other cartoon Bible stories of characters that were mentioned in the series (Samson, Adam and Eve, Ruth, etc.) She got to understand and now knows more than most adults do and she is only 4!! I highly recommend doing this to get the gospel in them to equip them for what they will have to face in this day and age!

Phil Vischer is now officially half way through his new project. Best known as the creator of VeggieTales, for the last few years he’s been focusing on What’s in the Bible? This straight to DVD series features Phil and a range of puppets are we get an overview of the Bible and why each section matters. The series will run 13 videos, and Exile and Return! is volume 7 in the series.

This DVD looks at the final three books of the “histories,” the Old Testament books that chronicle Israel’s history. Specifically, that means Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther.

Each video in the series is an hour in length, and that’s further broken down roughly in two. The first half hour, then, looks at Ezra and Nehemiah. First, there’s a brief recap of where we are in Israel’s history (both kingdoms have been conquered). As we delve into the story of the return to Jerusalem and rebuilding the temple and later the walls of the city, we also learn about the rulers who allowed the Israelites to return and rebuild their land. I must admit I am fairly shaky on this time in Israel’s history, so I found the program interesting and learned a lot from it.

The second half focuses on the story of Esther. It’s one of the longest retellings of a Bible story we’ve seen to date on the series, but even then they leave out a few of the details. But the entire point of the videos isn’t to retell Bible stories but to give a broad overview of what is in each book of the Bible and how that fits into the overall story God is telling.

Toward that end, they actually spend the last 10 minutes of this video asking what we’ve learned from the History section of the Old Testament, that starts with Joshua and covers twelve books.

These two episodes of “What’s in the Bible?” cover the Babylonians, Medes and Persians and the history of how they were involved in the Hebrews’ exile from their land. It focuses on the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther, and finishes up the Bible's historical books.

It is about an hour, and covers Ezra’s rebuilding of the Temple after their return, and the problems they had doing it. It also covers Nehemiah and rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem. A catchy song about this by the “Bentley Brothers,” Lincoln Neal and Rhett McLaughlin, is one of the many highlights on this DVD.

The song is so clever—done with an unusual beat and Popsicle puppets—and there's one Popsicle puppet wearing an “I (heart) NY” shirt trying to get into the picture—this song and puppet segment is more than worth the price of this DVD. It is funny, yet it tells the true story with accuracy, one standard met by all the songs in this 13-DVD series.

The story of Esther is told by the voice of Chester Whigget, and his Popsicle puppets. Here is one difference between Vischer’s new series and his previous series, VeggieTales: In VeggieTales version, Esther is a gourd, and her uncle is a grape. Many details are changed, though despite that, the main idea of the story gets across. “What’s in the Bible?” deals with the actual story. Both are good. But these Popsicle puppets of Vischer's are great, every time he uses them to tell a story.

Bonus Features include the usual two, “Show Outtakes” and “Michael’s Deleted Scene,” and there is also a bonus video of some very young children telling what they like about the “What’s in the Bible” series.

One little boy’s mother says he wakes up and says “Bible, please.” At the time of this video, this toddler was barely able to speak.
