The Prodigal Son

 

Posted by member Anne Camp.

 

Sunday Software's Prodigal Son software has a wonderful modern-day retelling of the story that could easily be shown as an A-V using a projector attached to a laptop.

 

The whole CD is terrific: close to the text, engaging, thoughtful. Lots of built-in discussion questions that are graphically presented.

 

We have also used the video (Son TV) found in the software  just with a projector so that the whole class could watch the re-telling at the same time. It is set to music. Very effective.

 

The contemporary setting of the video is a young man who leaves his father's farm for wild living in what appears to be a college setting. We just used it this spring and it was a big hit.

 

The video has the advantage that it's brief enough that you could repeat it several weeks and it has a very catchy tune which the students will enjoy taking with them. (You will also have this stuck in your brain all day -- as I said, very catchy.)
