Being that I was sent a copy of Unfinished because I had reviewed The Hole in Our Gospel, the good folks at Nelson also asked me if I would be willing to review the DVD series of the book. I said, "Sure." (I'll try anything once...within reason). Besides, I thought it sounded like a really cool idea. I liked Unfinished so well...why not?
I can honestly say I WAS NOT disappointed. There were 6 lessons in all, about 10-15 minutes in length. I confess that I forgot to time each one. I actually had me a marathon "Unfinished Session" and watched them all at one time. I don't recommend that but I had a block of time when i was able to do that. :)
Richard Stearns, the author, was the main presenter. He sat in a home by the seashore (you could see it in the window behind him) and talked like it was a fireside chat (there was a fire behind him at times). He was engaging, easy to listen to, and clear in his speech. The atmosphere was relaxed with little to no distraction. I suspect a major distraction would have been those who love the beach and would lose themselves staring whimsically out the window behind him. Just kidding.
I really liked the DVD teaching. It wasn't overblown. There wasn't so much information that one would be overwhelmed or one's eyes would glaze over. What I really liked about 4 of the lessons was his use of some folks who gave a testimony concerning what the lesson was focused on. Their stories were interesting to listen to and they helped magnify the lesson.
The Study Guide was clean, without a lot of information/questions crammed into a small booklet. Each session includes a Pre-Session time where each participant has a chance to do some personal study. Then comes the section for Group Study where, as you would expect, the group watches the DVD, answers questions, has a time of Bible study followed by a "Do it" time.
My only caution is in the study guide. It takes for granted each participant will buy and read Unfinished, either beforehand or while the series is going on. I have my doubts that will happen. I thought at first it was for the leader, and even that was an aggressive expectation. But the whole group? Maybe spreading it out over 6 months, but not 6 weeks.
That is my only caveat with this combo. Otherwise, I give it super high marks.
I was offered a free DVD/Study Guide if I would review them. I was not told I had to give a good review, nor was I compensated in any way (except with the DVD).
