Item Description...
This film based on the Bible's book of Genesis is something akin to a dramatic reading with visuals. The text of Genesis is read by a narrator, who at times appears as an elderly desert nomad telling the story to a small boy and other members of their extended Bedouin family. These presentations make historical sense, of course, as the biblical tales were passed along as oral history for generations. During the story of the creation of the heaven and the earth, the visuals tend toward nature photography alternated with scenes of the venerable storyteller, but during later episodes, actors play some of the characters from the Bible. A story of Adam and Eve is dramatized in a film montage, as are the stories of Cain and Abel. More inventive cinematography, utilizing modern clips of warfare and destruction, are used to illustrate some Old Testament pronouncements about the evils practiced by mankind. Noah's instruction to build the ark is portrayed, and in an elaborate segment, the building of the ark and its use during the great flood is shown. This film may not provide any new insights into the stories of Genesis, but the dramatizations coupled with the readings from the text are often beautifully filmed, and those interested in experiencing the visual atmosphere of the biblical stories will enjoy the presentation. --Robert J. McNamara

Reviews - What do our customers think?
not your typical movie  May 24, 2008
while this is not your typical action, voilence, sex movie of the day it did a good job giving a picture of the culture of Genesis. As it uses actual Biblical text it is accurate in its telling, leaving only minor questions of accuracy. It is a far leap from that day to today's reality; this movie helps us develop a snapshot of early Biblical times. Not bad.
good movie  Aug 4, 2007
It was not what I thought it would be, but it was good enough to recommend.
cheesy film  Jul 17, 2007
The video on Genesis is really poor, and very unlike later examples in the series. I've been happy with "Abraham" and "Jeremiah", but this one just isn't able to capture the creation story very well.
Missing the Sublime  Oct 5, 2006
The deluge of actions pact stories makes us miss the sublime. That is the case in this film. The film works at capturing the ugliness of sin and the sublime beauty of the Word of the Lord. Give it a chance.
I'm disappointed too!  Dec 28, 2005
Yes, I was disappointed in this video, and I regret purchasing it. I also expected more of it, having enjoyed very much previous releases like Esther, Jeremiah, and Solomon. Much of my disappointment was in discovering that most of it was not a dramatization; the scenes being viewed often did not relate to the story being told, and this reduces the video's usefulness as a teaching tool for Bible study. I differ with some previous reviewers in that I felt there was not enough concern for Biblical accuracy in some spots, notably in the story of the flood. Noah's ark as pictured did not appear to be of the dimensions or shape clearly described in Genesis 6:14-16. Genesis 7:13 lists 8 persons who entered the ark; the grandchildren of Noah were not born until after they left the ark when the flood had abated. In the movie, there appears to be a small crowd getting on board the ark, including a lot of children. And all those leaks in the roof of the ark that could be seen constantly dripping do not make sense at all: if Noah was a good enough builder to build a vessel that was seaworthy and did not leak below the water line, why is there any reason to think he was incapable of building its roof to not leak? After all, he followed God's instructions ("according to all that God commanded him, so did he" Gen. 6:22), applying tar both inside and outside the ark (Gen. 6:14). These scenes do not respect the details of the story as given in the book of Genesis. What is the point of claiming to make a movie based on the Bible, and then not basing it on the Bible?
