World's Greatest Stories - a Review

The kids have always loved audio books. Since Paul was little he has listened to all kinds of books on tape and CD. We listen in the car, before bed, at rest time, or anytime of day the kiddos need a little relaxation, or just want to listen to a story and I don't have a minute to read to them.

So, what could be better for someone who loves audio stories then the actual words of the Bible on CD--The World's Greatest Stories. This is not just anyone reading the Bible though. It's George Sarris who is an amazing storyteller. He uses different voices and adds in a few sound effects to make the story come to life. My children were amazed that it was only ONE person telling the story. The story comes directly from the Bible--you can choose either KJV or NIV. There are no words added or taken away, it is Bible, word for word! Mr. Sarris does give a short intro to each story telling about what happened just before the story he is about to tell.

You can here a short clip of the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendego here. I am sure you will be amazed at what a wonderful job George Sarris does.

These stories aren't just for kids to listen to either. Steve and I both enjoyed listening to the stories. It made the Bible become more real then it has ever been for me and the kids. They were begging for more. Even Molly, at 4 years old, has enjoyed these CD's and learned from them. They have spawned great discussions between Paul and I and have inspired him to learn more. So, after reviewing the 1st CD, The Prophets, I purchased all of the CD's produced. We now have the following:

The Prophets
The Life of Christ
The Beginnings
Joshua and Esther
Joseph and His Brothers
Defeating Giants

And we can't wait to see if more are produced because we will be ordering them as soon as they are released.

Each CD is about an hour in length. Making them perfect for car rides.

You can see a complete list of the stories on each CD as well as order them for only $7.95 each here. Currently, if you purchase 6 CD's, shipping is free.

Disclosure: We were given a copy of "The Prophets" CD in exchange for an honest review. All opinions given here are my own and there was no other compensation give for this review.
