Reviews - What do customers think about Videos That Teach?
I never put this book away. Oct 1, 2002
The copy of this book that I own is covered in soda stains, is never on the bookshelf and the pages are all gummed up from me working with them. How is that for a review of a book? I never put this book away and it is several years old. Get this one. Looking forward to my copy of Videos that Teach 2.
A Must Have For Youth Pastors May 25, 2001
In this book, Doug Fields offers hindreds of illustrations based on contemposrary films. Dealing with subjects such as sin, racism, and love these suggestions are a great "hook" to your messages on hundreds of hot topics. Doug has organized these titles aphabetically but the index helps you sort them by theme. Using the films in this book can really enhance your teaching and your minstry. It is a practical help that is guarenteed to get a positive response from teens and leaders alike.
A Youth Ministry Must To Spice Up The Same Ol' Same Ol' Nov 19, 1999
If you're tired of kids not truly grasping the meat of the message, the suggested clips will leave them wanting more. Videos That Teach lays out an easy-to-find-topic topical guide as well as scripture references. You just can't lose. This book is definitely a must for ministry with the only downfall being a few R rated movie titles deal with. They cancel themselves out right there with trying to keep the bar of excellence high. Other than that it has revolutionized many a message with some incredible clips from some of today's top movies.
