|I could not have asked for a better or more visual interpretation than this production. It brought to life the 3 books of the NT in ways I could not have imagined. A MUST SEE for all ages and every Christian Believer. It is great tool to use when witnessing, and for those of us who need refreshing. I HIGHLY recommend this to all.|
|Not like The Gospel of John but still good May 24, 2007|
|Word by word dramatization of the Book of Acts. After watching first The Gospel of John I must say that this Acts is not half as good. In what sense? Picture quality, the image is not as crisp and clear as in John. And the acting: The actors should have put some more nerve or life into their roles. At times it seemed they were reading. Some have an American accent and some British, this was a little distracting. The angels -of course everyone may have different ideas about their looks- weren't that awesome either. Their voice was disappointing, just as the voice of the Lord when speaking to (I think it was) Barnabas was like the voice of a teenager or a very young man: not very appropriate, I would say.|
Not much to say about extras. There is no foreign language audio, and only English subtitles.
But putting away these little inconveniences I would say it is a very interesting and rewarding way of "reading" the great Book of Acts. The exteriors, sets, costumes, number of extras employed, etc are witnesses to a great production effort. I liked Luke, the narrator, he gave the right tone and was a good guide. Thanks Encompassed Runner for recommending me this one.
|Teaching the book of Acts May 22, 2007|
|This DVD on the book of Acts has helped me in my teaching classes as it helped the students to understand what this book is all about. It is very well done and word for word of the Bible. Excellent tool.|
|Very interesting... May 9, 2007|
|I always enjoy having a visual experience go along with hearing and reading the Bible, and this is no different. I'd definitely check this out, if you have the time.|
|Watch the Bible Feb 26, 2007|
|A great idea. The script for this dramatization of the book of Acts is simply the biblical text (New International Version), word for word. The chapter and verse numbers are displayed in the bottom corner of the screen, and the DVD allows you to skip to specific chapters or events.|
The actors were obviously instructed that the Christian disciples would be full of joy, and although I find it annoying that "holy" people are so often portrayed with a flat affect--as if being "spiritual" is like being on Valium--I thought some of the actors in this production overdid it with the smiling and laughing--as if joyfulness means incessant cheerfulness. I did enjoy Dean Jones's portrayal of Luke, and I thought Francesco Quinn (son of Anthony Quinn) did a good job with his small role as Stephen.
