An angel has told Gideon he will free God's people from the Midianites. But, with no army and facing outrageous odds, Gideon finds it hard to believe and even harder to act on faith. Watch as God gives Gideon just what he needs to strengthen his faith. In the process, Gideon learns to depend on God to do the impossible.

Jacob's Ladder: The Complete Series - DVD – Swan D, 07/13/2009
I thought this series was going to be engaging and interesting to watch. I usually do enjoy children's videos and family movies. However, this was so low-budget that even I was bored watching it and that was just the first video. I wouldn't have even been interested as a kid in this film. This is an age where graphics inspire imagination and make stories come to life. Live-action when done poorly, like a renaissance-fair re-enactment, ends up looking like kitsch or campy. That's what this was like. I liked the premise, but this if the whole series is like the first video, it needs a serious update.

This is a really good series, and a great way for kids to learn truths of the Bible. My kids (grades 5-7) loved it, and I found that it stayed very close to the actual Biblical account. It captured the main point of the Bible story, and the details which were left out did not alter the message. I highly recommend this engaging series.

My kids thought Gideon was boring. They could not follow the story line. I think it was because it is British.

My Kids ate this up!!! (ages 5 - 12) I was so exctied to see them excited about scripture. It brought a whole new deminsion to the word and made us feel like we were living it. And it also brought about some very enlightening discussions. It doesn't stay 100% factual as far as scripture is concerned, there is some slight dramatic licence taken. But it was good to be able to discuss that with my kids as well and then the interest they had in going back to the bible and reading the story was wonderful! What a blessing!!
