Experience the Word in a whole new way!
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1 Corinthians 1:18 (NIV)
As teenagers, skateboarding legends Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi helped shape a culture. They reached amazing heights and broke countless records in pursuit of innovation and greatness. They were stars. They were heroes. As they will tell you themselves, they were fools — until they decided to lay their sins at the foot of the cross and never look back.
They traded in the destructive habits of boys to serve Christ as men, using their God-given talents to minister to America’s youth in a way very few can. Armed with hardcore biblical teachings, stirring testimony, and authentic, street-level insight, Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi speak in a language that can’t be faked — and work tirelessly to share a message that can’t be ignored. Foolishness, from SkateBible, is a daily devotional. It’s a witness tool. It’s an exciting, artfully made skate video featuring some of the biggest names in professional skateboarding — men now living as dedicated servants of the Lord.
Empower your kids to stand against the pressures they face at school. Give them what they need to be as fearless in their faith as they are at the skate park. Show them you recognize a truth they face every day: In today’s world, a righteous life is the greatest rebellion.

I chose this DVD in hopes my 13 year old grandson would be able to watch it but after reviewing it I realized it was not what he needed to see. It's composed of skateboard tricks repeated by skaters and quoting of scripture for most of it. I understand that you can be a skateboarder and a Christian but these were hard core and most of them carried the appearance of just that, although in a clean sort of way. It was like watching different types of Dinosaurs talking as if they were birds. A tweeting Dino looks like one thing and talks like something entirely different. We are admonished in the word to not take on the world's values in our appearance and behaviors. My grandson is trying to grow his hair over his eyes so he can keep flipping his head to the side in order to look like one of these guys who is now in his 30s. He wanted to be in a Play and even they told him he had to cut the bangs to participate which caused a huge issue in his family. He doesn't care if they are quoting scripture after scripture. He's grown up in church and at 13 doesn't get it anyway. His interest is in looking like those he admires for their sports. That's how these kids are. They don't think like these skaters who are, in fact, much older. It's message was you can look like the world and still give a good Christian witness. Well to a select few perhaps. I gave it a couple of stars for the testimonies that were given but unfortunately, not till the end. I feel more emphasis should have been put on that from the beginning. This DVD was of these skaters own making and I credit them for their efforts but unless watching them skate is your main objective, I wouldn't recommend it. You don't just toss scripture around like you do a skateboard to skate kids while showing video of the sport. That is not a Biblical way to evangelize. I'm afraid their video was a bit foolish but it was well intended I'm sure; however, my skate board worshipping grandson will not be seeing this one.If anything, it seems to equate the word with the sport which just doesn't compute for me but then that's just my perspective and nothing more.

A shopper asked: hey i was just wondering if this is a movie or a bunch of clips and footage put together? are there like real actors and a plot and stuff or was this shot in real life with a video camera? and also how inspiring is it? Feb 21, 2014
Dale M: A well put together testimony of what Jesus can do for someone's life. Variety of ethnic backgrounds speaking scripture and the reason for the gospel mixed in with many live shots of the skateboarders doing great stunts. Towards the end two powerful testimonies end with many skateboards stunts that weren't successful. it is a good one for teens that don't believe or quite get it yet Blessings to you Feb 23, 2014
Catherine M: Hi,
It is not a movie but rather a bunch of (some amazing) clips and footage put together.
It was shot in real life by the surfers themselves who are Christian Surfers and it is their testimony and gives a clear christian message.
Hope to have answered your question!

Michael K: There isn't a plot or actors. It's the message of the cross of Christ expressed quite extensively through the words of the skate boarder athletes who have found their identity in Him. So there is some cool footage and testimonies, but it is primarily narrated by Brian Sumner as he walks through the full gospel story. I thought it was excellent. Feb 24, 2014
Sharon B: It is a bunch of clips and footage put together. The awesome skateboarders give their testimonies and share the gospel. It is very inspiring. It may seem a little long for some. I would highly recommend it! Feb 22, 2014
Ralph F: It's more of a testimony with scripture and lots of skate boarding clips and footage. Feb 23, 2014
