This four-tape video series features the acclaimed actor and two-time National Rifle Association president telling Christian Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments on location in the Holy Land. Heston sees the series as providing a taste of the ancient tradition of oral storytelling, which is the way many of the Bible stories were originally passed down. In addition to footage from sacred sites including Mt. Sinai, the Jordan River, Jerusalem, the Sea of Galilee, Jericho, and Gethsemane, highlights include a musical score by Academy Award-winning composer Leonard Rosenman, and scenes of the principal Bible stories as portrayed by great painters through the history of Western civilization. Both a priest and a rabbi have officially blessed the video production. The titles in this set include: Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: Genesis, Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: The Story of Moses, Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: Jesus of Nazareth, and Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: The Passion.
