Review: I’m thankful to receive a review copy of this fun Odyssey adventure. This set had the audio and visual of the same episode. I Loved it.

The message was informative, inspirational and fun. I had a great time hearing the bloopers the characters as they filmed this “Live” event. After listening to the audio cd part I put in the DVD of the same show. They had the same audio I had just listened to on the CD playing with the still shots they had taken of the “live” event. It was fun to watch the video along with the audio.

After all these years of listening to the audio series it was great fun to see the faces behind the characters voices I’d listened to. My teen kids said it was a spoiler for them but I found it a interesting discovery!

This audio series talks about powerful truths the whole family can enjoy and learn to walk out in their lives together.  These tapes create great discussions with your kids. They won’t find them boring that’s for sure. It will make it easier and fun to talk about aspects of the bible and God you normally wouldn’t talk about! I highly recommend this and all the other Odyssey adventures.
