TOS Review ~ The World's Greatest Stories

I have been trying to find  a good reading of the Bible on CD for the girls to listen to for the last few months.  Several that I have tried have been dry and boring and not really what we were looking for.  That is until we were introduced to The World's Greatest Stories.  Goodbye boring, hello exciting, edge of your seat, attention grabbing listening. Bible stories we are all familiar with are vividily brought to life as they are retold by world renown actor, George W. Sarris.  With music and sound effects the all the words are taken, word for word, straight from the Bible in either the King James (KJV) or the New International versions (NIV). 

Actor George W. Sarris brings to life in the mind's eye the characters and events of some of the most treasured stories in all of history. The texts of all of the stories are taken directly, word for word, from the Bible. They are told, however, using the art of a dramatic storyteller, incorporating carefully chosen music and sound effects. The result is a very exciting story that comes straight from the words of Scripture.
We recieved the NIV set of The Prophets CD and my children were all completely silence and engrossed in the stories they have heard many times before.  Even the little tot, McKenzie who sometimes does not enjoy riding in her carseat was quiet and listening intently.  The very first time we listened to the CD's in the van we had reached our destination of the gymnastics gym before the story was over and my girls DID NOT want to get out of the van until it was over!  Yes, they are that good if my gym crazy kids didn't even want to go to practice until they heard the last of the story!

.Volume 1's CD includes the following stories on it, each of them is thought provoking and attention grabbing stories:
  • The Blazing Furnace
  • The Handwriting on the Wall
  • Daniel in the Lion's Den
  • Elijah & the Prophets of Baal
  • The Prophecy of Jonah
I hope I have peaked your interest in these outstanding, amazing, attention grabbing CD's. I wholeheartedly recommend these CD's for anyone looking to share The World's Greatest Stories!  We will be adding to our collection at the beginning of the year.
