Greatest Heroes and Legends of the Bible, narrated by Charlton Heston, is a wonderfully animated series that bring the best known and best loved Bible stories to life for the whole family. Each program details the Bible stories with the reality of the lives of the characters.
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.
