biblical!
25 April 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I am a seminary student and I thought the movie was biblical.

It is not intended to follow the scripture like a bible-on-VHS like the Gospel of Matthew or The Book of Acts.

But I was impressed with the way the movie deviates or adds things only to assist understanding.

I can't wait to show this movie to my child.

David is a great role-model in the way the movie presents him.

I saw this on TV late at night, and it fixated my attention.

It is shown on TBN occasionally.

I can't find it for sale, unfortunately.
