This review if from FishFlix.com, a company that makes available quality, Christian and family films. We received the Torchlighters, John Wesley DVD. We were aware of Torchlighters DVDs previously, but had never heard of FishFlix.com before. After visiting the site I am amazed at the wide variety of DVDs that they carry. They are reasonable on their pricing too.
The Torchlighters DVDs are animated videos about Christian through out history. We already own several of them, so we were quite happy to add John Wesley to our library. My children have watched many of them over and over. We also recently had a young lady, 8 years old visiting us, she had a very low attention span. We turned on the Torchlighters and she was captivated and sat still the entire time. She asked to watch some of the others that we own during her free time. Run time is 30 minutes, so it was perfect to watch with lunch or tuck in some time during the day.
John Wesley, who was the founder of the Methodist movement, was rescued at a young age from a house fire. Both his parents, especially his mother, were sure he was saved for a reason. His mother called him a "brand plucked from the fire". He goes on to try and work out his salvation for years before he finds saving grace. His message was not accepted at that time by those around him. I will not share any more, you will have to get the DVD yourself to find out what happens. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we did. And yes, the adults enjoyed it too!
This is one of the few animated DVD series we allow in the home as they really do stick to the story. They are entertaining and very educational. My husband often recommends Torchlighters to people we meet who have young children. One of my daughter's other personal favorites is Gladys Alyward which is also available through FishFlix.com. She was a missionary in China.
I did see several other DVDs available through FishFlix.com that we already own in our personal library, along with several others I would eventually like to add. The Torchlighters DVD is available for $9.99 right now on special, or you can purchase a collection of the Torchlighters for $67.97 on special. They are well worth purchasing. Even if you do not have young children, these are great for grandparents to own for when the grandchildren visit. We also use them for when my daughters are watching younger children.
The whole Torchlighters series is easy to incorporate into your Bible class. My daughters have learned so much watching these DVDs. They have learned about different time periods in history, how the church has grown and changed, and even some different cultures.
