    Has anyone heard these dramatizations? They are the best I have ever heard. A few of the actors are even oscar nominees and the music is terrific. Here's a list of some of their dramatizations.

    The Chronicles of Narnia
    Les Miserables
    Ben Hur
    The Secret Garden
    Silas Marner
    Bonhoeffer
    The Legend of Squanto
    The Luke Reports
    Billy Budd
    Father Gilbert Mysteries

    Some of these are available over the radio. But if you don't like them it probably won't be because of quality.

    A special note on Bonhoeffer. This book is comparable to the movie Glory as far as greatness.

    I've heard of Les Miserables and The Secret Garden, but none of the others.

    I'm surprised. The film Ben-hur is one of the most successful in history. In fact, not a film in history has surpassed it's oscar count. Only The Return of the King and Titanic have tied with it.
