The following resource people appear in the program:
Karen Armstrong, Theologian, [Scholar / Historian] - Author of A HISTORY OF GOD; Rev. Alexander Golitzin, Priestmonk, Marquette University. Theology; Rabbi Irving Greenberg, Chairman U.S. Holocaust Memorial; Dr. Maher Hathout, Islamic Center of Southern California; Dr. E. V. Hill, Senior Pastor, Mt. Zion Baptist Church; Dr. Amina Beverly McCloud, Prof. Islamic Studies, DePaul University; Dr. Martin E. Marty, Professor, University of Chicago; Elaine Pagels, Professor of Religion, Princeton University.
Beginning with the story of Abraham, in the Hebrew Bible, the narration and commentary has been beauifully edited with a fine music score and excellent selected of visuals -- paintings, photographs, and video of scenes in the Middle East. Especially remarkable and appreciated are both the writing and editing of narration with the commentary - interviews with the scholars and theologians -- terrific transitions between narration and commentary.
This program would be especially useful for both young adults and adults -- from high school through college -- in religious study classes as well as public schools.
However, the show is 100 minutes long, not 50 as the description says.

Don't buy this DVD expecting a solid scriptural source. The content is stereotypically secular, and biased toward the pervasive attitude of academia. Read morePublished on June 22, 2009 by Erin
