My review of Apostle Paul and the Earliest Churches (DVD by B&N Production)

About the DVD:

This Christian documentary film contains an archaeological treasury: mosaics, frescoes, statues, amphitheaters, agoras, temples and more. The historical, religious, and archaeological background of each Anatolian region in which Paul preached the gospel is explained. Yet Apostle Paul is more than an archaeological or historical survey; this production's reenactment of the miracles Paul performed, the difficulties Paul encountered, and the persecution Paul faced beckons the viewer to experience with the Apostle himself the birth of the Christian church. The film's archaeological emphasis is enhanced by 3D animated maps and footage of Antioch on the Orontes, Pisidian Antioch, Ephesus, Tarsus, and other cities important to Paul's ministry. Significant artifacts from a variety of Turkish museums are also discussed.

My review:

The DVD was a little different from what I expected when I first opened the package. The story was told by narration. The man's voice reminded me of someone talking about the migration of the Wildebeest on NatGeo. The tone was a bit stilted and not very conversational. There was no acting, unless you consider people walking in the desert or riding on horseback acting. I did like seeing all the ruins and the ancient maps and cities. This would be a good video to show kids in school about the life of Paul if you wanted it to be part of your lesson. It gives an overview of his life and travels and did incorporate some scripture along the way. For a documentary it wasn't bad. I would recommended it for Sunday School teachers and home school parents.

Thank you to for providing a review copy of Apostle Paul and the Earliest Churches DVD.  You can get this and hundreds of other Christian Movies at
