Referencing the Old Testament and Palestine’s influence on world civilization, this production sounds like a happy collaboration between an excellent reader and a fine director/producer. Without ever going over the edge, they make the most of the drama in journalist Howard Blum’s tabloidish account of two amateur archeologists on a quest for the true site of Mount Sinai. Yet despite their best efforts, a fascinating subject, and true-life derring-do--one finds the tape difficult to concentrate upon. Perhaps this comes from writing that tries a bit too hard to push our buttons. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
