Movie Reviews

Between Hollywood and Sunday School
Marshall T. Schwartzman | 04/25/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Somewhere between Hollywood and Sunday school lies "The Bible's Buried Secrets." Neither an attempt to prove nor disprove the holy scriptures, it aims rather to triangulate by searching the historical and archeological record for independent evidence that could verify the most famous episodes of the Old Testament. Perhaps most illuminating is the theory of the real story behind the Exodus (and especially intriguing for fans like myself of Cecil B. DeMille's epic 1956 version of "The Ten Commandments"). In short, highly recommended for believers and nonbelievers alike."
Another great pbs program
Britt C. Vickstrom | 02/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Bible's Buried Secrets is another great PBS program. It has good scholarly discussions on the origin of the Hebrew Testament. It has a few deleted scenes as well as a "making of" scenes: from computer image to final scene. Nova has educator materials for study as well."
Excellent application of the scientific method
R. Berg | Seattle, WA | 11/02/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Nova did a superb job of featuring the scientists who are unearthing ancient biblical sites and placing artifacts on a timeline in relation to biblical stories. It reveals how carbon dating works within archeology and how new archeological sites are shedding new light on the old testament. It also discusses the theory of five principal teams who wrote the old testament. I found it refreshing and definitely worth adding to my DVD library."
