"The goal of The Visual Bible is to put the entire Bible on film using only Scripture to tell the story."
Walk with the risen Lord. Watch as He is taken up into heaven. Experience the transforming power of Pentecost and catch the fire as God uses the passion of Peter (James Brolin) and John (Andre` Jacobs) to send the flame of faith racing throughout Jerusalem and around the world. Luke's powerful narrative brings to vivid life the compassionate love that unites believers across the ages.
The DVD comes in two discs that play approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes and has special features: Main Menu, English, Search by Chapters, Search by Events (99 events), Special Features, and Biographies.
"I bought this after watching the Visual Bible version of Matthew, and I have not been disappointed. The producers do not play with the NIV text, sticking to it word for word. This certainly must not have been an easy task to accomplish, but I so appreciate that these videos are, for the most part, not "Hollywoodized" and the established text was not tinkered with. I'm sure the producers would have liked to have had more freedom, but it comes off very good and accurate too (which is what I so much appreciate). My young children also enjoy watching this series, and it sure beats having them read the text by themselves. This acts it out, making it not only educational but entertaining. Christians, you ought to have this set in your video collection."

"A Beautiful and Accurate Recreation of Acts. The Visual Bible Acts film is a beautifully made, accurate recreation of the book of Acts. The set is in two volumes on DVD, and the quality of the DVDs and the production are both excellent. This is a beautiful set, and any Christian (or interested non-Christian) would be well served by viewing this film. I know it helped my understanding, and I am very grateful for that. Highly recommended in every way."

"Good set to own!! I enjoyed these films. The acting is, for the most part, excellent. The Acts films are a blow-by-blow account from the NIV bible. They took little literary license, as it was very straight forward and, obviously, as accurate as the NIV is."

"Excellent movie! This movie is the entire book of Acts word for word. It shows how Christianity was spread after Jesus returned to heaven. I liked the way the story of Saul/Paul was portrayed. Unlike others I think all the actors did a fantastic job including Peter. Also I think there were enough background actors. Awesome movie but you should see The Visual Bible Matthew before Acts."

"I never thought that seeing a movie which followed faithfully a book would make such a difference. But it does. It's a brand new experience to read the Acts in one go. Its great!"

"The Visual Bible (both Acts and Matthew) is wonderful. It brings the Scriptures to life in a way that is compelling and believable. The actors are first-rate. For me, watching these has brought another dimension of meaning to the NIV text. It's a great option if you want to study but would rather not read."
