The World's Greatest Stories


The World's Greatest Stories is a great CD series that brings the Bible to life.  Read by Actor George W. Sarris, Bible stories are told with live animation and make a real impression as your family listens to them.  They are taken word-for-word from the Bible, there are no changes made to "fix" the story.  The animated voice is what really creates the excitement in listening to these stories.

The current series has a total of 23 Bible stories on 6 cds or cassettes that are about 1 hour each.  You can purchase either the New International Version or the King James Version.

These are a great break from listening to the radio on a car ride.  They can be included in schoolroom for free time while playing games.  The list of opportunities for using this series in your life is endless.

Our kids enjoyed World's Greatest Stories very much, and I appreciated the fact that they were not re-written stories.  In each reading you experience not only great storytelling, but also some extra music and special effects to really make it stand out in your mind. And nothing "made up", everything is being accurately told from the Bible.  

We listened to Volume #1:
The Prophets

  • The Blazing Furnace
  • The Handwriting on the Wall
  • Daniel in the Lion's Den
  • Elijah & the Prophets of Baal
  • The Prophecy of Jonah 
With these above subject matters, there were a couple parts where the voice was very intense and a bit on the scary side for our 6 year old.  But other than those times, we thoroughly enjoyed listening to this masterful storyteller.
