TOS Review–World’s Greatest Stories

Speak Up Saturday

It’s Speak Up Saturday! (On Monday, yea…Kahlen’s birthday party was this weekend. That’s a good excuse, right?)

Actor George W. Sarris brings to life in the mind's eye the characters and events of some of the most treasured stories in all of history. The texts of all of the stories are taken directly, word for word, from the Bible. They are told, however, using the art of a dramatic storyteller, incorporating carefully chosen music and sound effects. The result is a very exciting story that comes straight from the words of Scripture.

Since Kahlen loves listening to audio books, and she’s about worn out her copy of The Jesus Storybook Bible, I was very excited to receive this set through TOS Homeschool Crew.

I received volume one in the NIV version. It includes:

  • The Blazing Furnace
  • The Handwriting on the Wall
  • Daniel in the Lion's Den
  • Elijah & the Prophets of Baal
  • The Prophecy of Jonah

The first time I popped it in the car, I thought, incorrectly, that the kids wouldn’t like it. The drama of the reading is, well, dramatic. Almost scary in parts. BUT my kids both really enjoy listening to it!! Kahlen will sit on the couch even and listen to the whole thing.

I really like the concept. It’s directly from scripture, with no additions or subtractions, but presented in such a way that she can still understand the story. When I’ve listened to it with her, she has asked questions during and after about what a certain word means or what that part of the story was about, which I appreciate because it opens good conversations.

I’m looking forward to purchasing more volumes of this great series. Currently, there are 5 more volumes, for a total of 6. Each one retails for $7.95, which is very reasonable!!

Here are the products currently available:

  1. The Prophets
  2. The Life of Christ
  3. Beginnings
  4. Joshua & Esther
  5. Joseph & His Brothers
  6. Defeating Giants
  7. SPECIAL: The Story of Easter ($9.95)

We give this product five stars! So glad we can listen to the Word and looking forward to getting a couple more in the next few months.
