Vision Forum Review - Into the Amazon: One Lost World, Thirty Men, Seven Mysteries

As I mentioned in a previous review, Vision Forum is a wonderful company with excellent products. With each product I come in contact, I end up loving the company more and more. The website states, "The mission of Vision Forum is to communicate a vision of victory to Christian families through edifying books, films, toys, curriculum, and other resources". I really identify with this statement. The world is throwing so much trash at families through all different medias, it is nice to find a company you can trust for purchasing edifying products. My second review for Vision Forum is Into the Amazon, a dvd collection.

Into the Amazon is four dvds that include 300 minutes of discipleship, theology, and adventure. Doug Phillips and his team go into the Amazon jungle, the Andes Mountains, the Great Peruvian Desert, and invite your family to come along. Doug explains throughout the series how the Amazon is such a controversial place because of the battle between radical environmentalism and biblical Christianity. The four dvds include seven mysteries:

Episode 1:  The Meaning of the Mystery of the Amazon
Episode 2:  The Mystery of the Lost Legacy of Adventure and Dominion
Episode 3:  The Mystery of the Strange Creatures of the Amazon
Episode 4:  The Mystery of the Plants of the Amazon
Episode 5:  The Mystery of the Lost Tribes
Episode 6:  The Mystery of the Ica Stones and the Great Peruvian Desert
Episode 7:  The Mystery of Machu Picchu and the Mighty Inca Empire

What We Liked About This Series:

First off Doug is very easy to listen to, and seems very knowledgeable about the material being presented through this series. Grace and myself watched one episode each day during her school time. The material had us start many a conversation about the differences between worshiping a Creator instead of worshiping the creation itself. Grace's favorite episode was strange creatures of the Amazon. No real surprise there. I really enjoyed the episodes about the Ica Stones and the plants of the Amazon. I also learned that Teddy Roosevelt went on an expedition to the Amazon with his son after losing his reelection bid to be President. He almost died on this expedition and brought back thousands of specimens from his trek. All the information was fascinating and the video was stunning. We really enjoyed reviewing this product. We got to take a trip to the Amazon without every leaving home and not coming in contact with all those bugs. 

Please visit Vision Forum to view all their wonderful products. Into the Amazon retails for $45.00.
