Lazarus Awakening DVD and Study Guide, a review

This review is of the DVD and Study Guide, the book itself is not included in the package.  However, I have not read the book and got by just fine without it.  If studied in a group situation, the book would be helpful.

I was drawn to this study because of the author, Joanna Weaver.  I loved her book Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World.  This study is about Lazarus and Jesus calling him "from darkness" and how you can lead a resurrection life.

First of all, I'm not always a fan of DVD studies because the study book and the DVD don't always coincide well.  But this one is fabulous.  It is put together to make it easy to watch each teaching segment on the DVD and work within the corresponding chapter of the study book.

While this series would make a fantastic study in a group situation (I'd love to take part of those discussions!), what makes this quite unique is that one can easily work their way through it alone.  I plan to continue until I am through the study book; which by the way is easy to read, follow, and understand.

What puts this study over the top and better than any DVD series I have followed before is the teaching and the location.  For Joanna Weaver is a gifted teacher and the location is from the land of Israel.  It is beautiful and helps the student feel as if they are walking where Jesus walked.

The DVD includes (info taken from the back of the DVD case):
In-depth Bible study: Features eight 17- to 20-minute video sessions
Bonus "Israel Moment" videos explore the life of Christ and the Holy land.
Down loadable leader's guide, promotional material, and retreat format.

Highly recommended for group and personal use!

This Study package was provided by Blogging for Books for the sake of review but the opinion is my own.

Looks like a good study. We watched a series by Ray Vanderlaan and he was teaching from the Holy Land. I was amazed at how "normal" the scenery was. It seems like it should be bigger than life. Smile. I love seeing where Jesus lived and walked. Pam (SD)

That sounds interesting. I'm kind of don't like Women's Bible Study groups, but I do like to do some on my own.
