The World's Greatest Stories Review

The World's Greatest Stories are an award winning series of Bible stories that make the actual words of Scripture leap off the page into the hearts of children of all ages. 

What a great way to introduce Bible stories to your children!!  The CDs that The World's Greatest Stories offer are not rewritten or changed, they are the actual, word for word, Biblical accounts brought to life in a powerfully dramatic way!

The World's Greatest Stories includes six volumes:

Volume 1: The Prophets
Volume 2: The Life of Christ
Volume 3: Beginnings
Volume 4: Joshua and Esther
Volume 5: Joseph and His Brothers
Volume 6: Defeating Giants

We received Volume 1: The Prophets {NIV}, which includes The Blazing Furnace {Daniel 3}, The Handwriting on the Wall {Daniel 5}, Daniel in the Lions' Den {Daniel 6}, Elijah and the Prophets of Baal {1 Kings 17-18}, and The Prophecy of Jonah {Book of Jonah}. 

We also received a sample CD that includes short selections from all of the stories in both the KJV and the NIV.

Actor George W. Sarris brings to life the characters and events with his unique storytelling.  Mr. Sarris is an accomplished actor, narrator, and spokesman, and began telling Bible stories in live settings in 1985. 

Since then he has performed his shows before a wide variety of audiences in churches, conferences, school, retreats, and camps across the nation.

My Thoughts:  Overall I enjoyed listening to the CD we received.  There were a couple parts I think might be a little scary for a younger child {loud, angry voice} and at least two parts I personally did not care for, but you should check it out for yourself.  Funny Bunny really enjoyed it and asked to immediately listen to it a second time.  I can see how children can easily memorize a whole Bible story by listening to these CDs.

Thoughts of an 8-Year Old:  I like The World's Greatest Stories because it is very exciting and educational at the same time.  My favorite story is Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the blazing furnace.  Mr. George W. Sarris is a great storyteller!
