Product Description

From the Back Cover

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.
In Part One, 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.
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.

I had almost forgotten how good the story of Genesis was. How could something this good slip my mind? Charlton Heston is one of greatest actors of our generation, but unfortunately, I can't think of any of the titles of his movies, at this time.

It has been years since I studied Genesis in school... so many years, that I had actually forgotten about many of key elements of the story. That's why I was so happy when I heard that Charlton Heston's presentation of Genesis would be available on DVD. The DVD provides all of us with a helpful reminder about just how powerful the story of Genesis is.

Wonderful video that has Charleton Heston telling the story of Genesis. He starts with Adam and Eve and goes all the way to Abraham. The story is told in the Holy Land utlizing beautiful paintings by the masters portraying the story of Genesis. If interested in the Old Testament, this is the place to start.

Charlton Heston who has thrilled me in BEN HUR (for which he won his Academny Award), THE TEN COMMANDEMENTS and my favorite EL CID is remarkable in this telling of the Book of Genesis. This combines his brilliant acting with the magnificent scenery of the Holy Land and it gives us beautiful music and works of art from great masters of the past as well.
What more can one want from entertainment: Inspiration, uplifting and enlightenment -- if you want more than that go to the Bible and read the real book of Genesis or the real Passion of Jesus.
Get this one and you will not regret it.

Sorry, I would contact the seller directly but have discarded the shipping information. I received the wrong product: Genesis, the Creation and the Flood. This is NOT the Charlton Heston version. I have previously taken this dvd from the library and didn't find it compelling enough to watch the whole rendition then, and certainly not now having anticipated the Charlton Heston production. This is the first in my many Amazon.ca purchases that I've experienced any problem. What's my next step?

As expected, Charlton Heston offers a resounding and expressive reading of the Holy Bible. The presentation is outstanding. I only wish I could listen half way through a chapter or book, shut it off and resume exactly where I left off without having to listen to the entire chapter/book over again.
