I can't say enough great things about this wonderful tv-series! It makes the Bible and biblical events come to life. While I don't know how many of the "mysteries" are "mysteries" because to me as a Methodist Christian it appears that God has clearly stated what He means in the Bible by most of these "mysteries," but other topics that are explored that God seems to be silent about in the Bible are fascinating to learn about via the professors and archaelogists that are in this dynamic series on the Bible. Do I agree with everything the scholars say about the Bible and some of the mysteries that are explored in this great series? Definitely no! However, if you love the Bible as much as I do as well as have an interest in knowledge; especially, biblical questions and mysteries, then this series is definitely worth buying! I haven't bought this dvd collection, yet, but I have rented the dvds and seen the tv series when it used to air on tv and it's a great DVD collection to add to your already pre-existing dvd collection! The price is affordable and well worth it! For the knowledge alone, I'm surprised that it doesn't cost well over $100 for this entire series! A & E should create new episodes of "Mysteries of the Bible" because no other documentary series about the Bible seems to be as good as this one.
