Dove Review

Host Russell Boulter does an awesome job describing how the Bible was put together and how it came to be what it is today. Four episodes will answer all of your questions.

Program 1: Familiarizes viewers with the Bible and answers basic questions about the Bible.

Program 2: Focusing on the Old Testament, host Boulter explains the Torah, scrolls that contain Hebrew scriptures, the minor prophets, prophecy and predictions in the Hebrew scripture, and briefly explains each book of the Old Testament. He looks in detail at the story of Joseph. Viewers will also learn about scribes and their process of recording these books.

Program 3: This episode on the New Testament focuses on the life, character and teachings of Jesus Christ. You will see many Old Testament promises fulfilled in New Testament reading. The New Testament is broken into four sections that Boulter will clearly explain.

Program 4: Maintaining the Bible and what forms in which it has been produced. Beautiful artwork is used to retell the stories in the Bible. You will learn and see how to spread the Word and influence others through the teachings of God in the Bible.
