"I like this tape series, but the DVD scans are VERY POOR quality. They are grainy and almost blurred. The quality of the VHS tapes are much better. There is no reason for this.Save your money. Buy the tapes if you want this series. We can't support people who put out a poor quality product to save money on decent DVD scanning."
THE GREATEST STORIES TOLD BY A MASTERFUL STORYTELLER!

"One of the greatest legends of cinema brings four of the greatest stories to life in "Charlton Heston presents The Bible," a powerful, soul-stirring epic! Heston reads from the stories of Genesis, Exodus, and the Four Gospels with great theatricality, telling them as they may have been told decades before they were written down. While his performances may be a little over the top, they fit this form of production perfectly.
Together with a mesmerizing orchestral soundtrack by Leonard Rosenman, powerful images, and visits to the places where these events may have actually happened, "Charlton Heston presents The Bible" belongs in everyone's collection of Biblical films and documentaries! Film/DVD Grade: A"
Not to bad but a little over the top

Reviewing the VHS tape edition!

"I am reviewing the VHS tape edition. I have not seen the DVD version but have read here that the quality ism questionable.
Actor Charelton Heston, well known for playing Moses, delves into the Bible. In a combination of terrific oratory filmed in the Holy Land and classic paintings we hear readings from the King James version of the Bible. Heston is very good dramatically reading passages from the Scritures. Any Heston fan will find his majestic discourse very engaging as he speaks the lines from the most famous book on Earth. It is somewhat strange that he has a table set up at the location of ancient ruins, somewhat calling up images of John Cleese at a desk in a field on Mony Python, but it does seem to work. Heston still conveyed a great screen presence when this was filmed and he captures the essence of the Holy Books."
