This holiday season a truly amazing film is being released world wide - along with books and CD's. The Prince of Egypt is an animated film about Moses and how God worked in his life to lead the Israelites from bondage in Egypt to freedom in the Promise land.  This movie is one parents can feel very confident taking their children to see as it accurately and with excellence portrays the Biblical record of Moses.

When You Believe - the miraculous story of Moses from Scripture
Introduction by - Joseph Coleson
Illustrators - DreamWorks Prince of Egypt artwork
Publisher - Thomas Nelson

    Many families will see the new feature film - "Prince of Egypt" this holiday season.  This movie is amazing in that Hollywood chose to present a true Bible account and do so accurately!  There are many "Prince of Egypt" books available, but we will look at two of them for now.  "When You Believe" takes the Scripture account of Moses and teams it up with some of the original artwork the movie was built from.

    favorite features:

    This book is an excellent tool to utilize by parents or teachers to help kids learn truth about God as vividly illustrated by Moses' life.  The example and message of Moses is so encouraging - there are always more opportunities for us from God.  He doesn't give up on us, He keeps His promises and so many more!  Take advantage of the release of "Prince of Egypt" whether you see it or not, to help your children and/or class learn important truths from Moses' life.  Extremely well done Thomas Nelson and DreamWorks!

Destiny and Deliverance

    favorite features:

    This resource is an excellent tool to help us truly learn from the life of Moses and to help our children do the same.  Moses' life is so encouraging and "hope-filled" and with the release of the "Prince of Egypt" people, young and old alike will be interested in learning about Moses.  Let's be prepared to help take that interest in facts to a more important level of applying truth about Who God Is and how He works in our lives!  This book will challenge, encourage and strengthen you and your faith.  Extremely well done Philip, Max, John, Jack, Joni, Tommy, Kenneth, Thelma, Thomas Nelson and DreamWorks!
