Epic: A Journey Through Church History

Epic: A Journey Through Church History published by Ascension Press makes Church history look very exciting.

I love this promo video, especially starting at ~40 sec.



The actual series is a 20 CD set that is largely lecture format. Now, if we could just pair them up with a great documentary maker like Ken Burns or if the presentation followed in the same vein as the promo, this would be phenomenal.

Coolness. I want it.

Wow! This looks fantastic! $300? YIKES!! I wonder if our homeschool group would chip in a few bucks per family and then pass it around.

I posted this because I love the demo video, but I DON'T think the actual series looks anything like it except for covering those time periods.

Otherwise, I'd own it already.

Looks like I'm not the first to find this. Here is a comment from Steve Weidenkopf on a post over at Fallible Blogma.

"Greetings. I’m the creator and presenter of the Epic: A Journey through Church History 20 part study series. Thanks for highlighting Epic on your blog. I wanted to respond to some of the comments left by your readers. Epic was designed as an adult faith formation program for parish groups – now that does not mean individuals can’t use the product – they can. Epic was published a little over a year ago (Feb. 09) and we’ve received positive reports from around the US and Canada from groups as well as individuals. Although most of the presentations involve my lectures – we did add graphics to the presentation – such as pictures of saints, maps, etc – in an attempt to give people something to look at other than myself.

Arresting is the word! Wish they had an epic film that looked like this.
