Synopsis by Steve Blackburn
This first of four volumes features acclaimed actor and two-time National Rifle Association president Charlton Heston telling the Bible story about the beginning of earth, the animals, and humanity, from an ancient amphitheater in Israel. 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 Israel, highlights include a musical score by Academy Award-winning composer Leonard Rosenman and Genesis portrayed by great painters. Both a priest and a rabbi have officially blessed the video production. The other volumes in the set include: 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.
