This is Charlton Heston's odyssey into some of the greatest stories of the Bible. I feel he does a great job in bringing the Bible to life as he presents four different stories to the viewer in a way that only he he can do. The video consists of stories about Genesis, Moses, Jesus of Nazareth and The Passion of Christ. All of the stories were shot on location in the Holy Land and are presented with Mr. Heston reading directly from Scripture as well as discussing historical facts about the time and places he is bringing to life. One of the places he resides in while reading includes a first century Roman amphitheater located in Israel.
My particular favorite is The Passion which presents the tragic and triumphant story of Jesus Christ that occurs in the New Testament. It may seem to some that watching one person stand around quoting Scripture on screen would get boring after awhile, but I thought it was really done well with paintings and images of specific scenes as he read through the Good Book. Mr Heston presents the readings in a powerful and impassioned way which left me wanting more. I recommend this video collection if you are a believer in the Bible or even if you are just a Charlton Heston fan. Music, imagery and Charlton Heston's style of presenting the Gospels all make this a memorable experience that you will watch time and time again.
