Moses presents the Bible
22 April 2005 | by caspian1978See all my reviews

A Brando of a man, Charlton Heston is one of the best. The story of the Bible, spoken by Heston is a delightful experience. Much of this documentary takes place on an old Roman / Greek kind of stage where Heston talks to his audience behind a giant wooden desk that is covered with books and relics of the past. Throughout the video series, Heston is seen on location at many historical / biblical sites where many prophets, apostles and followers walked. Whether you are a fan of Charlton Heston or not, you have to agree that Heston's outrageous talents adds to the glory of the greatest story ever told. His talents in speech makes this documentary on the Bible stand out from the dozens of other popular tellings of the story.
