    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of GREAT LEADERS OF THE BIBLE,
    JACOB, THE MAN WHO FOUGHT WITH GOD, JOSEPH AND HIS BRETHREN, and SAUL
    AND DAVID:


    GREAT LEADERS OF THE BIBLE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 80/100):
    "What's that? You only know Gideon is somehow connected to those Bibles
    you find in your motel rooms? And you're pretty sure Samson was a really
    strong guy with a scruffy haircut? Tsk, tsk, tsk. Let us revisit these
    stories then, shall we?"

    JACOB, THE MAN WHO FOUGHT WITH GOD (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 80/100):
    "The strongest aspect of the film, which is shared by the other discs in
    the collection, is the sense that the filmmakers take the material
    seriously. Some costly production obviously went into this bad boy, and
    while it's not seat-glueingly exciting, the narrative is competent and
    the production is terrific."

    JOSEPH AND HIS BRETHREN (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score
    79/100):
    "Potiphar looks like someone's Uncle Ralph, as if a desperate crew
    member dragged a relative on set to fill the role, and the whole
    romantic intrigue with Potiphar's wife is doomed from the start -- and,
    as a result, pointless -- but Joseph's story from beginning to end gets
    a decent treatment."

    SAUL AND DAVID (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 77/100):
    "I found the film laborious, and this is one of my all-time favorite
    stories! But if you must have your Old Testament fix, the production
    values and acting are solid enough that you won't weep and gnash your
    teeth -- too much."
