This amazing film brings the book of Luke to life through terrific acting, splendid cinematography and great special effects. The Holy Spirit falling on the disciples in the Upper Room, and the ascension of Christ are very realistic. The narrative is word-for-word from the Bible and is extremely well done. Dean Jones does an outstanding job as Luke as does James Brolin as Simon Peter. Bruce Marchiano brings to life a Jesus that is approachable and loving, unlike many other depictions that show the Savior as a quiet, reserved, almost untouchable man. There is some violence in the film including brief shots of a stoning and a few people beaten and bloodied, although not graphic. We recommend this one-of-a-kind depiction of the Gospel of Luke to those age twelve and older.
