The World's Greatest Stories Review
We all have our favorite stories...our favorite authors...our favorite characters. The Bible is an important book in our house. It is filled with THE World's Greatest Stories. George W. Sarris brings to life some of the most exciting characters and stories in the Bible, word for word! Yes, that's right. There is nothing added or taken away. It's God's Word told straight from the Bible....with George's talented voice and exciting music and special effects to help bring it to life.
My family was given a copy of the NIV translation of Volume 1 - The Prophets from The World's Greatest Stories. My family sat together one evening after dinner and listened to the CD. It was a 45 minute story time from the greatest book, The Bible. There were five stories: The Blazing Furnace, The Handwriting on the Wall, Daniel in the Lion's Den, Elijah and the Prophets of Baal, and The Prophecy of Jonah. You can hear audio clips of this CD and the others' offered by clicking here.
Besides Volume 1 - The Prophets, The World's Greatest Stories offers five more volumes: Volume 2 - The Life of Christ, Volume 3 - Beginnings, Volume 4 - Joshua and Esther, Volume 5 - Joseph and His Brothers, and Volume 6 - Defeating Giants. These CD's are only $7.95 each and you can choose either the NIV or KJV. When you order 6 or more CD's you will receive free shipping! Click here to place your order.
I enjoyed listening to the stories very much. I particularly appreciated that it was coming word for word from the Bible, so there was no way of an error creeping in. The sound effects were exciting and helped to really bring the stories to life. My son thought the voices George used were too strange and not related enough to the accents or voices that the real people probably would have had. I don't know if that is true, but it was his opinion! There is no age recommendation assigned to this product, which is probably a good thing. After all, God's Word is for all ages! In our opinions this CD would be most appealing to listen to for ages 12 and under because of the childlike feel and quality it has.
The World's Greatest Stories would be a wonderful blessing to your family. Listen to it in the car, before bedtime, during family Bible study time, or just pop it in when the kids are playing! It would be a unique and inexpensive gift to bless another child or family. This product is well worth the buy. You won't be disappointed!
