I watched this series on TV and pre-ordered the set right after seeing the first episode. For someone like me who didn't grow up in Sunday School, it really helped me to be able to see the story unfold. The only disappointment was that not every single story can be included, so some favorites are excluded. Over all highly recommended.
This series does an excellent job of taking a new look at some well known passages. While many events that unfold in Scripture appear cleanly laid out, study revels them to give a bit more latitude in understanding exactly how they happened. The producers here have does a good job of allowing us to view these passages theatrically in a new way.
