How appropriate that John Rhys-Davies narrates this documentary about the Ark of the Covenant, considering he played "Sallah" in "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Hearing his booming voice is like listening to an old friend. The documentary is quite well done as the various possible locations of the famous Ark are considered. Bob Cornuke, a former police detective and research expert, follows various trails which ultimately lead him to the most likely resting spot of the Ark in Ethiopia. Cornuke also has searched for Noah's Ark and the real location of Mt. Sinai.
Graham Hancock, author of "The Sign and the Seal" is featured as well and he shares various traditions and histories of the ark. The documentary reveals artistic renderings of the ark and comments from various people who have inside information on the history and location of the ark. Is it located in St. Mary's of Zion Church? The viewer will have to decide for himself/herself but this is a fascinating DVD which families everywhere will enjoy. The search for the ark just may be over!
Violence: A skull and bones are seen; it's stated some people believe they would be struck dead by God if they viewed the ark at its present location.
Other: A guardian of a chapel in Ethiopia believes he cannot leave his duty of guarding the ark; a discussion of the conflict it would cause between religions in the Middle East if the ark were returned there.
