Worth watching
Review by Tom on 06/13/21 review stating Worth watching
Of the three PBS DVDs Ive recently watched, I believe; From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians was very good. Peter Paul and the Christian Revolution was good but it seemed to jump around, in time, more than necessary. There were also slight audio defects on my copy. Secret Files of The Inquisition was not really well done. Most of the people analyzing the events seemed to be uncertain of what they wanted to say. Their names and credentials were close enough to the background color to make them hard to read. The accented voice overs were probably an attempt to have impact but, instead, were a bit difficult to hear and understand. They were all informative, unbiased, and, for anyone interested in the catholic and Christian religions, something they should watch.

I think the documentary was wonderful - informative, well researched and presented in a very entertaining form. Especially interesting for those of us who are not biblical scholars, but would like to know more about major figure contributors to the spread of Christianity.
