Charlton Heston's Voyage Through the Bible: Old Testament |


CHARLTON HESTON’S VOYAGE THROUGH THE BIBLE: OLD TESTAMENT (Jones Digital Century, CD-ROM for PC and Mac, $29.95) Actor Charlton Heston was more believable as Moses than he is here as a pseudo-scholarly guide through Old Testament stories and history. Still, Voyage Through the Bible: Old Testament shows signs of a higher power at work. Standouts include a capacious gallery of Bible-inspired Western art, like Michelangelo’s The Fall and Expulsion From Paradise; slide-show ”voyages” to Holy Land cities, emphasizing archaeology over theology; and the complete text with keyword dictionary. Though the occasional video clips look as beat-up as ancient artifacts, Heston’s resonant voice is divine. B
