Review: 

This is a beautifully-performed, profesionally produced complete dramatization of the New Testament in the reknowned Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition (sometimes referred to as the Ignatius Bible). John Rhys-Davies (who plays Gimli in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films) as narrator leads a great cast that includes Neal McDonough (Minority Report, Band of Brothers) as Jesus, Julia Ormond (Sabrina, First Knight) as Mary, Sean Astin (Sam in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings) as Matthew and Michael York (Jesus of Nazareth, Murder on the Orient Express) as Luke.

There was a time, not long ago, when such beautiful biblical resources for families were only found with the Protestant versions of the Bible. Happily that is no longer the case!

You can download free audio samples at the publisher's website: Truth and Life Dramatized Audio Bible. This resource can be ordered on 18 CDs from many bookstores or it can be ordered as an audio download through Audible.com. Ignatius Press offers this in a special package that includes a bonus audio CD from Steve Ray (from the Footprints of God Series) on the Gospel of St. John.
