What kind of villain has trouble staying awake long enough to disrupt the lives of impressionable kids? How could a snoozy senior citizen possibly pose a problem for vibrant, healthy youngsters? Meet The Slacker.
Drew has been skipping the Youth Bible Study lately, causing concern to the Bible Adventure Team (otherwise known as Bibleman, Biblegirl, Cypher and Melody). And just how will Bibleman counteract the Laser of Laziness, which has paralyzed his colleagues? Don't miss a minute of this sleepy-er, gripping adventure as a young man's heart and soul hang in the balance. And be very careful when visiting HelpingHotline.com. Key verse: Proverbs 18:9 "The person who is 'slack' in his work is just like a person who destroys."
Bibleman and action! The two go together in this quick-paced action DVD which has an unscrupulous enemy using his laser of laziness in order to discourage Christians from faithfully attending church and reading their Bibles. Bibleman and other characters are quick to quote scripture and this is mixed in nicely with action sequences in which the characters, particularly Bibleman, are prepared to battle in their superhero-type costumes. There are laser sword fights and energy bolts to overcome.
Nice moral lessons are incorporated including overcoming laziness by preparing, pursuing good things, and persisting. This is one that mostly young kids will enjoy but the whole family can enjoy the adventures of Bibleman! We gladly award our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal to this energetic battle against evil.
Violence: Bibleman and friends fight against energy bolts with laser swords; nothing graphic.
Drugs: An evil character uses his laser of laziness which hits the characters and affects them by making them tired and lazy.
Other: Scriptures are often quoted and prayer is offered up at the conclusion of the episode.
