Item description for Ben Hur (Radio Theatre) by Focus on the Family, Lew Wallace & Paul McCusker...

An unforgettable account of betrayal, revenge, redemption, Focus on the Family Radio Theatre's production of Ben-Hur tells the tale of a nobleman who fell from Roman favor and was sentenced to live as a slave--all at the hands of his childhood friend, Messala. Once nearly brothers, any hope of reconciliation is dashed after Messala is seriously injured during a vicious chariot race won by the vindictive Ben-Hur. But what makes this adaptation of Lew Wallace's best-selling story unforgettable is the changed man Ben-Hur becomes after seeing Christ on the cross. Recorded in London with film-style sound, this action-packed production shares that compassion is the true path to redemption.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ben Hur (Radio Theatre)?

Absolutely fantastic  Sep 30, 2008
My kids and I have been listening to this in the car on the way to theater practice and for that short amount of time, we are transported into the days of Ancient Rome. It is absolutely wonderful. The sound affects are realistic and the actors are very convincing. Once again, Focus Radio theater has done a good job.
More like the book  Apr 29, 2008
I have read another review of this item, and I can understand where that customer is coming from. If you are used to the movie, you might be disappointed. If you know something about the actual book, however, this radio drama will appeal to you. I actually liked this better than the movie, though both were great. You will probably miss seeing Heston win an excited chariot race, but you will meet characters not brought out in the movie such as Iras, Balthazar's daughter and you will see the evil Messalla get a more fitting punishment. Great buy for those who have read or would like to read the book!
Ben-Hur - Not Altogether Bad  Jan 15, 2008
I have preconceived notions of how the Ben-Hur story should go...because Charleston Heston told me so and when Heston plays a role, he makes it his own. Truly unforgettable and always unsurpassable forever. Even so, you can't watch Heston's movies in the car (at least I can't) or while cooking, cleaning, or tending to the children. Movies don't help me overcome insomnia either. However, radio drama works all around, has a calming affect on me, and is akin to someone reading me a bedtime story (depending upon the contents of the story of course. That said, Family Radio Theatre was always on in my house or car and audio books are the next best thing.

I grew up listening to radio shows like Amos & Andy, Shock Theatre and Mystery Theater (oops...have I dated myself?) so I taught my children to appreciate these and other radio shows as well. Focus on the Family Radio Theatre was a biggy in our house when the kids were little. It was a great reward for the kids to listen and an awful punishment when they could not. I say this so the reader understands that my review of this product is based on my lack of using the medium. I had never heard Radio Theatre's version of Ben-Hur. Now that I have, I can only say that it was different. The story line was okay and the plot was memorable but I just can't think of anyone else playing Heston's role. After all, he is a very hard acto to follow.
