In the beginning before there was a written language, the stories in the Bible were told, to people sitting around a campfire in the dark, listening to the tales of what had happened and what was yet to come. Now, Academy Award-winning actor Charlton Heston (Ben-Hur) recaptures all the passion, the power, the drama, and the sheer beauty those first storytellers passed on to us with his own dazzling new exploration of the greatest stories ever told.
Genesis: Mr. Heston recounts the origins of man and the universe from the stark beauty of a recently discovered Roman amphitheater at Beit She'an, Israel. Here is all the wonder of the Creation the forming of Adam and Eve the choice of the Tree of Knowledge and the loss of Eden. Here, too, is the dramatic story of Cain and Abel the awesome power of God's wrath with Noah and the Flood an the testament of faith in the account of Abraham and Isaac.
The Story of Moses Book of Exodus: Experience the extraordinary life of Moses his dramatic deliverance of the Israelites the parting of the Red Sea the creation of God's sacred law, the Ten Commandments and the joyful arrival in the Promised Land.
Shot on location in the Holy Land, this incredible production is more than great literature come to life. It is a walk through history itself.
