Five-Volume Video Set Highlights Biblical People

Martie Zad The Washington Post

Biblical legends come alive in a five-volume set of videos, “People of the Book,” designed to explain things we want to know about where we come from, where we are going and who we are.

An SISU Home Entertainment release, the five volumes are a series of portraits introducing Abraham, Moses, Ruth, Esther and Matityahu. They offer the viewer a journey through biblical history and the Holy Land, sharing the revelations of the Old Testament legends and prompting discoveries of his or her own.

The set allows a viewer to join “Abraham: The First Leader” as he follows the word of God, leaving family and country to build a legacy that has evolved into the three religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

“Moses: The Leader” deals with the prophet’s directing his people out of darkness with a light that will never die.

“Ruth: The Convert” is a journey of faith leading from the death of a husband to the birth of a king.

“Esther: The Queen of Persia” shows how she used her power to save her people.

“Matityahu the Maccabee” shares his fight for freedom and the triumph of belief over adversity.

The set, listed at $79.95, is available from SISU at (800) 223-7478. Individual tapes run 20 to 24 minutes and are available for $19.95.
