Some of the World's Most Fascinating "Talking Heads" Explore
David Crumm | Canton, Michigan | 02/16/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Facets Video has given us a remarkable, 12-hour discussion among 27 of the world's top Christian and Jewish Bible scholars who've researched aspects of the final days of Jesus' life.

Divided into 12 themes, it's ideal for teachers, clergy, interested lay people to watch over a period of weeks.

In investing in these DVDs, you should be aware that the format is "talking heads" -- and usually that's a pejorative phrase. But, the fact is that these are some of the smartest "heads" in the world -- and their conversations are mesmerizing.

The filmmakers argue that, if they had produced dramatic visual segments to illustrate scenes in the discussion, they would have placed indelible visual stamps on what these things "really looked like." In fact, the whole point of this fascinating documentary series is to peel back those accumulated layers of centuries-old assumptions -- to freshly consider the actual original record.

It's well worth the investment for teachers, groups, congregations -- and anyone who's interested in what the world's top scholars are actually saying about these issues today."
