Against All Odds: Israel Survives - 13 Episode DVD Series - DVD – Joseph Grady I, 03/19/2009
What a great set! This series is phenomenal. It is very well presented, very informative, and highly entertaining. I watched the entire series over a couple of days because it was so interesting. The episodes were very diverse in topics and all were well done. It showed how miracles can sometimes be subtle things. I had never really grasped the full implications of some of the events which I already knew about such as the raid on Entebbe or how modern Israel uses Hebrew.

Gadi B asked: I'm considering buying this DVD for an Israeli friend who is not Christian, and I'm wondering if this would make a good gift, if there's anything in it they might find offensive.
Thank you. Nov 26, 2010
Tom I: Hi...My name is Tom Ivy and I wrote and directed all 13 episodes, living in Israel for a year during the production. The episodes are all Jewish stories except for the story of the British army's liberation of the Holy Land during World War I - and specifically Major Vivian Gilbert's capture of the Turkish garrison at Micmash using a strategy used by Saul and Jonathan. The dramas are mostly told in Hebrew with English subtitles - and I was very careful to respect our Jewish friends - all of whom were very impressed with the result. I would say it is a great statement of the power of God over the people of Israel - it is NOT in any way a Christian evangelistic tool - except that it would definitely encourage someone to investigate their faith and its personal relevancy if they are a Jew or Christian. Your Jewish friends will like this very much. Hope this comment helps. If you get it and get comments, I'd love to hear about your experience. You can send me an email at our website - just google the ivy company. - tom Apr 28, 2014
mary u: Shalom Gadi!
Sorry it has taken so long for a reply, but wanted to ask others who also saw the DVDs their input too. We all agree this would make a great 'stepping stone' to start with. The first DVD especially. There have been so many miracles by the Lord for His people and these DVDs just share some. I do not believe your friend would find them offensive. I hope you will be able to view them with him also.
Mary Ulrich Dec 27, 2010
Jeremy W: We have not viewed all of the series. Thus far, we have seen 5 of the 13 episodes and it presents that God has miraculously brought about and preserved the current state of Israel without going into the roots of Christianity or discussion of Jesus thus far. It appeals to both Christians and Jews. It is very historically enlightening and pro-Israel. I highly recommend it to you. I think your friend would value it as a gift. Nov 27, 2010
Ellen K: This would be an excellent DVD for any Israeli to see because it reveals some facts in Israeli history that would make an Israeli proud to be a Jew. I think it would make the viewer less complacent and more willing to fight for their faith. Also, I think it would cause one to take more of an interest in what is going on in Israel today. One definately learns from this DVD what the news media will never report. Nov 26, 2010
Brenda R: It is my opinion your friend will be intrigue by "Against All Odds." I viewed the series through a Christian perspective and not a Jew, however I don't think there is anything that will offend your friend, if anything it will make him proud to be Jewish. I have found this series to be a powerful witnessing tool. I pray this helps you.
In Christ Jesus,
Brenda Nov 26, 2010
Eva S: I don't think there's anything they could take offense to, unless they were very sensitive. Just keep in mind though that it WAS made by Christians, from a Christian prospective, but it does try to be objective. If anything they would just find that they don't agree with all the material. A muslim might find it offensive, but most Jews won't... Nov 26, 2010
Linda S: We enjoyed watching this series. It would make a good gift. It is not offensive to an unbeliever. The point is that God STILL does miracles on behalf of Israel. I say, Go for it! :-) Nov 26, 2010
A shopper asked: This movie is confirming of the Biblical view of Israel? Feb 21, 2013
