My family has been watching these DVD's all week and it has been a pleasure to watch. The fighting scenes were awesome and not watered down. I really got the feeling as though I were there watching it all unfold. It's been refreshing to sit together as a family and watch a movie that encourages our hearts and spirits.
While not everything in the movie actually happened, it challenged us to want to go and study our bibles.
As a Christian, I am so pleased that Hollywood would take the time to produce such a great Miniseries and I can't wait for more!
