What is radio theatre? Radio theatre is the bridge between film and audiobooks in the format of a dramatised, purely acoustic performance. It is an immersive experience for listeners to imagine the characters and the story through dialogue, music and sound effects. Unmatched, Focus on the Family?s Radio Theatre is award winning with performance from internationally acclaimed actors. More than an audio book it is a movie that plays on the biggest screen of all... your imagination.

This is the very best of the Radio Theater's production and masterfully written! McCusker was truly blessed of God to have written it. Hearing Luke interview those who personally experienced the events of Jesus life and switching voices to those in the story (instead of just having the person Luke is interviewing do all the speaking) puts a beautiful spin to make the story as realistic as possible. You feel as if you are right in the room with Jesus and those who experienced His physical Presence personally. It brings these Biblical stories to absolute life and prompts the hearer's heart to serve the Lord with even more love and devotion.
I have always been a big, big fan of Focus on the Family Radio Theater since the time over 15 years ago when I first purchased The Chronicles of Narnia. You cannot do poorly with choosing any of the dramas to purchase, The Secret Garden, Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, Corrie Ten Boon, At Home in Mitford, The Father Gilbert Mysteries...... but The Life of Jesus will certainly be the centerpiece of my audio collection. Thank you for your wonderful productions! Its an audio feast for my ears with a real stirring of my imagination to go with it!
It isn't obvious, but this item is marked as "Digital". That usually implies that you're purchasing an MP3 file. I was willing to settle for an MP3 because I haven't been able to find a copy of this on CD. However, what you're actually buying is the right to play this work in a proprietary application called Flux Player. That means it won't work in a CD player or an MP3 player. And in a few years, when Flux Player is no more, you'll lose access to it. Very disappointing!
I am so thankful for audio dramas like this one! Such a great find!
After hearing the first few parts that were added as a special feature for the Adventures in Odyssey club in December, we were immediately captivated and purchased the whole audio drama. It is very well done, and they did quite a remarkable job coloring in a story around Luke's gospel to keep you very interested.
