Charlton Heston Presents The Bible: Genesis (DVD)
In the beginning... before there was written language, the stories in the Bible were told, to people sitting around a fire 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 the passion, the power, the drama, and the sheer beauty those first storytellers passed on to us with his own dazzling exploration of the greatest stories ever told.
In Part One, Charlton Heston Presents The Bible: 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 and the testament of faith in the story of Abraham and Isaac.
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.
