"Hillsong: Can You Believe It?" (Songs of Truth DVD review)

“Can You Believe It!? - Songs of Truth” is both a question and a challenge... a statement of gratitude to a loving God and an invitation to explore the very foundations of faith. Classic songs like “My Best Friend”, “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” and “What A Beautiful Name” join brand new declarations of faith such as “As The World Shakes” & “Heaven Is Our Home”. We pray that this collection of fun and vibrant songs, help children around the world to declare biblical truths about God’s love and grace for them.

My review...

I love Hillsong, so I was excited to have the opportunity to review this DVD. Sadly, it didn't live up to my expectations. 

I am used to watching DVD's, but I've never watched one with a main menu quite like this one ... and that's not a good thing. Due to the color of the cursor and background, it was extremely difficult to see the "x" to know which item you were lined up with on the menu. Also, there was no option to "view all," as is common on music-related DVD's.

When you click on an item, the videos and songs are clear and of good quality. I was quite surprised, however, that the videos don't go from one to the next, even with the live versions of the songs. Instead, you have to go back to the same difficult-to-navigate main menu and click on another song. I enjoyed the songs, but the DVD was not great. In fact, I've received homemade DVD's that have better main menus than this one.

That said, I really enjoyed the music/songs overall. Here are some lyrics from a few of my favorite songs:

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I'm a child of God
Yes I am
In my Father's house
There's a place for me
I'm a child of God
Yes I am
-"Who You Say I Am"

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
-What a Beautiful Name" 

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy in conjunction with FlyBy Promotions, but I wasn't required to leave a positive review.

Hillsong believes that teaching children to love God and others takes place in both the home and in the church. For this reason they seek to partner with parents (the greatest teachers of all!) and with church pastors and leaders, equipping them with great resources. Through fun experiences, meaningful music and ministry that encourages kids to participate, Hillsong Kids presents Jesus Christ and His Church in a relevant way, creating moments which children will never forget.
