book cover

Drive Thru History:
Greece and the Word DVD

Released: 2005
Run Time: 95 minutes

Source: Rented from Netflix.

DVD Description from Netflix:
As host Dave Stotts travels to Greece, viewers get a front-seat view into the history of Western civilization. From the origins of the Olympics to the mystery of the Oracle and the missionary journey of Paul the apostle, this presentation provides a fast-paced tour of ancient Greece in which the stories of the Bible are made real and relevant.

My Review:
Greece and the Word is a history DVD with some information on the Christian history of the sites. The presenter was rather silly at times (though less so than in Turkish Delight), probably to make it more interesting to teens and tweens. He gave a good overview of the history of the various places. Most of the information was illustrated with maps or "cut out" style drawings, but there was also some good video of the ruins of the ancient sites. If you're not familiar with the history of a site or person and want to know more, this DVD did a good job.

Section One: 34 minutes 28 seconds - Delphi, Olympic games

Section Two: 37 minutes 5 seconds - Athens, Paul

Section Three: 31 minutes 23 seconds - Corinth

If you've watched this DVD, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
