Francis Chan – BASIC series


A friend drew my attention to the new Francis Chan DVD’s called the ‘BASIC series’ – being produced by Flannel, the same crowd that produced the NOOMA videos with Rob Bell:

Check out the BASIC series website here.

Trends come and go in our culture and the church seems to follow.

Francis Chan asks these questions about the church. Francis puts it this way:

“If I only had this as my guide… if all I had was the Bible…and I was to read this book and then start a ‘church’ what would it look like? Would it look like the thing that we’ve built here and all refer to as church? Or would it look radically different?”

BASIC is a seven part series of short films – from Flannel, the award winning creators of the NOOMA film series – that challenge us to reclaim the church as Scripture describes it to be. This series will speak to those who have questions about the church and to those who may have lost interest in the church.

What is church?
You are church.
I am church.
We are church.

Here is the series trailer:

…and the trailer for the first DVD in the series, Fear God, which is available now here.

I have just bought it and will review it next week once I’ve received it through the post and watched it 🙂
