Journey to Jesus DVD Curriculum

This is a 6-session video series intended to show how Christians can build christ-centered friendships with Muslims.

Sessions 1 and 2 deal with two moms as they connect over children, husbands working and how they deepen their friendship following a family crisis. These two will explore our attitudes toward those with different faiths.

Sessions 3 and 4 deal with coworkers talking about their faiths and we watch to see if they will continue to be friends or not because of their faith. These sessions introduce the Muslim faith and culture to viewers.

Sessions 5 and 6 deal with college students tasked with learning about each other's worldview. The conversations are much stronger than the previous two. These final sessions will help you understand how to share your faith with a Muslim.

The videos are top quality and perfect for a Sunday School or Small Group setting. The actors are good and the storylines keep you interested.

I liked how the ideas were realistice rather than a lecture-based "talk like this and point this out" dry boring and useless. The DVDs came with the videos (3 per DVD) and a powerpoint presentation that someone COULD use in their class but I wouldn't recommend it.

Some may not like this resource simply because it deals with Muslims and treating them with respect and kindness.

This DVD was provided for review, at no cost, by Tyndale Publishing.
