The late Jason Robards gives a polished performance in these rereleases of two favorite Bible stories. Robards depicts Jonah running from God's summons to preach to the people of Nineveh. His measured voice has a perfect pitch and is particularly rhythmic when Jonah is swallowed by the whale. Robards's jubilation portrays Jonah's astonishment and joy when the whale spits him up, creating an inspirational tale of obedience and forgiveness. Next, Ruben Blades portrays Joseph and his brothers in a pleasant, well-paced voice as he narrates the story of the coat of many colors. Blades's tone is melancholy when Joseph is sold into slavery, then joyous when Joseph forgives his brothers' betrayal many years later. This story of family relationships, love, and forgiveness is one children will identify with. Authentic sound effects and background music complete the presentation.
