Learn about Sodom & Gomorrah in this release in the Greatest Heroes and Legends of the Bible series
For more than 40 years, Charlton Heston has been captivating audiences with his thrilling portrayals of Biblical Heroes such as Moses, in The Ten Commandments. Now, sit back and relax as he shares with you and your family his passion for Biblical literature and his unique insights into these timeless stories of faith.
Throughout the Old Testament, God demonstrates His willingness to punish sinners. Indeed, on several occasions, He destroys entire populations because they have turned their backs on Him. But always, He manages to find one good man who will carry on an set an example for the rest of humanity. Abraham was such a man. And he is the central character in the powerful story of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Now, with this beautifully animated film, you and your family can experience this story together. As the story opens, Abraham (or Abram, as he is initially called) is a mere teenager. But as he grows into manhood, it becomes clear that God has important plans for him. "You are a righteous man," God says. "Therefore I will make your descendants into a great nation. Go, therefore, to the land I will show you."
Abraham obeys and brings his wife Sarah along with him. In the course of their journeys, Abraham and Sarah experience many difficulties. They witness the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and in the process learn an important lesson about God's wrath. Many years later, Abraham faces the greatest test of all. He must make a choice between his love for God and his love for his only son. The story ends happily, of course. But in the process, it conveys an important message about the power of faith.

|Pretty good Feb 15, 2007|
|This video should have been called "The Story of Abraham" instead of Sodom and Gomarrah; the whole video was strictly about Abraham; Sodom and Gomorrah was only a brief part of this video. |
I did not give this video a 5 for the following reasons:
1) Certain parts of the story were left out which were part of the biblical text; while other parts were inserted which were not part of the text. These parts that were added were not contradictary to the scriptures, but I would rather have seen biblical parts than non biblical (speculation).
2)Abraham is depicted as chosen by God because of his own righteousness; because he loved the truth. While it might have been true that he loved the truth, the biblical picture is more along the lines of God choosing people out of his own good pleasure. God didn't call any of us because we were good, but because he loved us.
3) This goes with point #1- Melchisedec was not in the story- this scene was left out. When the Angels went to Lot's house to abide, the part where the Sodomites tried to break down the door, etc. was left out. I am not sure why this was left out, but probably because they didn't want to offend Sodomites. I understand that we shouldn't purposely offend people, but to leave part of the text out is just nonsense and compromise.
There were small things here and there that I didn't care for but overall this was a good video. It is not nearly as bad as the "Garden of Eden" video. I think it can be a profitable video for your children to watch as long as you are able to fill them in on the parts that are lacking (or added that are not necessarily true).
|Very Good Story, But.... Aug 16, 2005|
|Very Good Story, but there are just a couple of problems. The First being that the story tends to be kind of choppy, but that's understandable. But the other problem is Much More Serious, at least to Me. There is a Really Really Annoying Song that the Narrator Sings in between scenes, and it makes You want to hit the MUTE Button on Your TV, and that kind of defeats the purpose of watching. You can't expect Kids to take something like this seriously, if there's going to be this song that makes them want to barf! The song is Completely Unnecessary, and could be replaced with just instrumental music if needed.|
|Great value Jul 22, 2005|
|You can't go wrong with this when the price is so low. The animation quality is like that typically seen in basic Saturday morning cartoons, which is good enough for kids. What I like is that all the videos in this series give all the important details of the story, rather than giving a shallow, watered-down version as is usually the case in children's stories. These will entertain preschoolers up through junior high and the script is very closely based on the scriptural account. Each video is 45-50 minutes long. The only reason I didn't give this series a 5 is that each video has a hokey song that could definitely have been left out, but for such a low price and good script, I can overlook that.|
