Only Truman Madsen could pull this off

He always manages such a unique blend between scholarly insights and devotional moments. The setting and music add appreciably to the impact. I could see myself using many of the sections in FHE, Sunday School, etc.
Spirituality and Scholarship Combined

When people try to tell you that you cannot have "pure Spirituality" and "pure scholarship" at the same time, hand them this DVD collection. No honest person can, I believe, watch this awe inspiring series and not walk away KNOWING that this is a scholar with a personal testimony. Yes, science and scholarship are not out of harmony with the Spirit. You just have to have a truly spiritual giant to show you how the two can be so much in harmony, and Truman Madsen is that giant. I thank my Heavenly Father for his two seminal works (this one and the one on Joseph Smith) that bring the Spirit so abundantly into my home! I cannot imagine a collection being complete without these two series -- and these two series might just make a complete collection all on their own.

... to have someone like Bro. Madsen teaching us. I've started watching these on Sunday afternoon to keep the Spirit alive after Church. The amount of knowledge and insights he has is amazing. And a great bargain - definitely worth 3 times the price DB is charging. A marvelous testimony of the Savior. Thank you, Bro. Madsen.

The Eternal Christ is a walk through Christ's life in the Holy Lands. This DVD set IS about the Savior's life. Brother Madsen knew Christ, knew His ministry and has shared this with us. I couldn't stop after disc 1. I spent an entire Sunday afternoon and well into the evening to watch the entire set. The story he tells is one of wonder, amazement and sorrow. But most of all, love.
