Review:Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity By: Mark Batterson

DVD- Based Study

Mark Batterson takes on a journey through five areas of Christianity in order to get us back to our Primal or purest faith possible. This DVD is a companion to his book of the same title and if you every watched a Rob Bell study video you'll enjoy this as well,. Batterson uses both storytelling and visual effects to get his point across to the viewer. He breaks the DVD into five areas, Primal, Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. In each one he illustrates his view with a story of his personal journeys of faith or those of which he has come into contact with in his spiritual quest.

Mark's storytelling craft is that of the masters of writing like Hans Christian Anderson, he puts you at ease without putting you asleep with his narratives. At the end of each section he gives a biblical passage that sums up that area along with questions to expand your learning. Two of my favorite questions are, What needs to be stripped away to help you get back to a Primal love relationship with God? What was the most mind stretching book you ever read?

Mark's quest is to strip way the layers of complication that Christianity as put on itself threw the centuries and get back to the simple message of Jesus. With both his book and this DVD study guide you will be on your way to that goal. For more information go to his website,

I think Christianity is misinterpreted and mix with pagan religions,so that it is not clearly seen.
