Value priced!

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Compared with other romances . . . Ben-Hur easily passes them all, by a vitality which has a touch of genius.” —Carl Van Doren
5/30/2013 - Lew Wallace
The tale revolves around two storylines: the story of Jesus and the story of Ben-Hur. The author supposedly was engaging in a discussion with an atheist over the existence of God when he discovered how little he knew about the actual historical setting of the Messianic events. He set to work, and after a season of research, turned up with the book, his primary purpose being to teach.
