"This is a super cute DVD using claymation animation, like the classic TV Christmas specials RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER and LITTLE DRUMMER BOY! The Bible content is very accurate, though much has been compressed into a 30 minute format. What is here is very good and entertaining! If you are considering this DVD, you cannot go wrong!
This is made by the BBC in the 1990's, as part of a short series of animated Bible stories. Two other Bible stories available on DVD, on amazon.com, also in claymation from the same company are RUTH and JOSEPH, as well! I highly recommend that any Christian should buy all three, and you will not be disappointed!
The low amazon.com price makes it easy to add these to your library of Bible DVDs, and they will be among your best Bible DVDs, you will see!
This company also did some very good, hand drawn animation of about 7 other Bible stories. Those are NOT claymation, but regular cartoons, but they all have a different artistic style, and are very accurate to the Bible stories being told. There is very little to complain about any of these TESTAMENT: THE BIBLE IN ANIMATION series DVDs.
If in doubt, I would suggest that you start with RUTH from this DVD series. It is the most complete and accurate of all the DVDs in the series. It covers just about everything in the Bible book of Ruth, and it is super cute to watch, especially for Christian families! ABRAHAM and JOSEPH are great, but they can't get all the Bible story details into the allotted time, but what they show is all great, entertaining, and faithful to the Bible.
I wish they would show the covers to these DVDs, or some of the photos from the backs of the DVD packages, then more folks would see how nice of a job the animators did with the claymation Bible characters.
Try it! You'll love it!"
