Focus on the Family Radio Theater and Ben Hur. What a great combination! Two of my favorites combine for great entertainment that is also inspiring. This version emphasizes the true purpose of Christ's life here on earth. Not FOTF's best production, however.
Riveting commuter-book. Appreciated knowing drama closely followed book. The ah-ha moment for me was how Gen.Wallace used Ben-Hur's story as an allegory for the U.S. Civil War (brother against brother, power over the vanquished, forgiveness after the war was only possible through Jesus, etc)
