A great Biblical movie of historical value
18 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was born in the era that you feared God and when it comes to the bible, "let it be written, let it be so".

I am 50 years old and a believer. This movie helped me understand all the events that happened in early history. I believe in every word that is in the bible and so should you.

This movie will explain (no matter how corny the costumes are, the actors are etc) the events from Abraham to Isaac and Jacob forward. I find it fascinating how the movie is so correct to what the bible teaches.

Some may criticize the directing and acting but the story is real and should be taken to heart. If you are a true believer, you will see this movie many times in your life as well as the 10 Commandments movie.
