Item description for Noise 005---Rob Bell (Nooma #5) by Robert Bell & Rob Bell...
Overview Nooma is a revolutionary product that is changing the way people experience spirituality ? a series of short films on DVD with a 32 page discussion guide. It's not a book or a cassette tape. And it's not a CD or a two-hour movie. It's a new format called NOOMA® ? short films, between 10 and 14 minutes long, about God and our lives. Since its limited online release in November 2002, NOOMA has impacted millions of people. Because of this initial success and great potential, Zondervan has partnered with NOOMA to bring these films to the world. NOOMAs are appropriate for personal and small group settings, congregational meetings, and much more. Like parables, they use the experiences of our lives to teach about the fullness of life through Jesus, tackling issues like forgiveness, discipleship, and unconditional love. The study materials accompanying each NOOMA encourage meaningful discussion with relevant questions and biblical references. Rob Bell, a leading pastor and breakthrough communicator in the Christian community, is featured in the first series of NOOMAs.

Reviews - What do customers think about NOOMA: Noise (V5)?
Challenging, Thought-Provoking ,and Quiet Nov 6, 2006
In "Noise" (#5 in the Nooma series) Rob Bell surprises and intrigues the viewer with the challenge to be silent. And it is literally a challenge, as his gives that opportunity amidst the DVD. He only talks for 2 1/2 minutes, then there is a black screen with various written messages fading in and out along with (you guessed it) Silence!
I have yet to use this in a teaching setting. I'm just not sure that my group is ready for this yet. I've played this for myself when I need to clear my head and refocus myself when I get off track. However, his point is that we get so distracted by all we see and hear that we can't really focus on God like we should.
According to DVD liner notes, some people who bought this DVD called and complained because the DVD was only 2:34 long. It takes about 20 seconds for text to show up on the screen following that time. I guess that shows exactly how insecure we can be without noise and activity in our lives. But that drives home his point even further.
As you may have read elsewhere. Nooma is a great teaching series for older youth and young adults.
