It brings the Bible to life with the account of the biblical Doctor Luke's amazing adventure and true life story!
This is sure to please any listeners no matter what their ages are. On the back it says "for All Ages"... but there are a few rough/intense moments - including when Doctor Luke gets "run through" with a sword or a knife.
It is a wonderful set that I highly recomend without any hesitation.
In this production they turn for their source to the Gospel of Luke. And I must say that the original title of this series -- The Luke Reports -- is much more appropriate than the title it's been re-issued under, The LIfe of Jesus. For the focus is much more on the imagined backstory of Luke's writing of his gospel than on the actual life of Jesus. That isn't necessarily a negative, as Luke's story -- which is the story of the turmoil of Palestine in the time of Nero -- is interesting. However, if you're looking for a dramatization of the Gospel of Luke then you may be disappointed, as the life of Jesus occurs as just snippets throughout.
I have just a few criticisms of this production. For one, I didn't particularly care for Luke's voice -- which is purely a subjective opinion I realize. Mary the mother of Jesus was voiced way too young. The story takes place 30 to 40 years after Jesus' death, which would put her in her 80s. However, she sounds about 20 years younger than that, and much too vigorous for such an elderly woman. I didn't particularly care for the scene where Jesus scourged the money changers in the temple, as the way they had him growl and roar made him sound almost like an animal. And I was especially disappointed in the crucifixion scene as most of Jesus' words were omitted -- and thus the power of the moment was omitted, as well.
While all of these criticisms are fairly minor, taken all together they make this one 4 stars rather than 5.Read more ›
