The Bible as you've never seen it before. Bible Battles explores the text of the Bible from a military stand point. Experts examine the tactical choices of Moses as he flees Egypt, Joshua as a comander, the last stand of Saul and Jonathan, and event he battle of David and Goliath. Fantastic fight sequences bring history to life right in your living room.

Understanding the Old Testament a bit better
Michael D. Castle | Nampa, Idaho | 12/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are studying the Old Testament of the Bible, this History Channel program gives a unique perspective of events of the time, told from the point of view of the soldier. The perspective is supported by both Biblical text and Egyptian texts describing the various events. This program provides a humanistic opinion of Old Testament events that involved warfare as told in a very logical sequencing of military thought and strategy. I highly recommend this program for anyone doing in depth study of the Old Testament or Torah."

"This sheds a new light on the ancient isrealites. It shows them as a military people, not just a group of peasants."
A different perspective than most
Michael Okey | Tulsa, OK United States | 03/23/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I origionally saw this on the history channel and decided I wanted to be able to review it whenever I wanted. It takes a non religious view of the Bible as a military history text and discusses several events from the Old Testament in that context. As much as it looks into that aspect of the Bible as history, it also points out that the Bible describes in detail some very unpleasent aspects of history in that period, and apparently without shrinking from the ugly details."
