Summary : First published in 1880, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ became a best-seller. The popular novel spawned an 1899 stage adaptation, reaching audiences of over 10 million, and two highly successful film adaptations. For over a century, it has become a ubiquitous pop cultural presence, representing a deeply powerful story and monumental experience for some and a defining work of bad taste and false piety for others. The first and only collection of essays on this pivotal cultural icon, Bigger Than "Ben-Hur" addresses Lew Wallace’s beloved classic to explore its polarizing effect and to expand the contexts within which it can be studied. In the essays gathered here, scholars approach Ben-Hur from multiple directions— religious and secular, literary, theatrical, and cinematic—to understand not just one story in varied formats but also what they term the "Ben-Hur tradition." Drawing from a wide range of disciplines, contributions include the rise of the Protestant novel in the United States; relationships between and among religion, spectacle, and consumerism; the "New Woman" in early Hollywood; and a "wish list" for future adaptations, among others. Together, these essays explore how this remarkably fluid story of faith, love, and revenge has remained relevant to audiences across the globe for over 130 years.

Summary : For the love of a woman...For the love of his people...For the love of God...Ben-Hur: The Odyssey a legend lives again. A.D. 59 A shadow falls over the Roman Empire as Nero, the young emperor, begins to assert a foreboding independence. Disregarding the counsel of his advisers, he openly flaunts his unfaithfulness to his wife Octavia, and then orders the murder of his scheming mother Agrippina. Into this looming storm comes Judah Ben-Hur, his wife Esther and their friend, the great apostle Paul, who has been arrested for his missionary activities. Paul has appealed his conviction to Nero, and Judah - the founder of the church in Rome - offers to defend him, setting up a fateful collision of two worlds. Judah Ben-Hur, one of literature's great fictional heroes, rides again in this stirring sequel to the classic novel by General Lew Wallace. Like its predecessor, Ben-Hur: The Odyssey is woven into a solidly historical tapestry. Great events are brought to life from the first century's most turbulent decade, in this epic tale of love, passion and faith.

Summary : In this Biblical epic, Jewish nobleman Ben Hur (Heston) struggles against Roman tyranny in 1st century Palestine. Ben-Hur scooped an unprecedented 11 Academy Awards® in 1959 and, unlike some later rivals, richly deserved every single one. This is epic filmmaking on a scale that had not been seen before and is unlikely ever to be seen again. But it's not just running time or a cast of thousands that makes an epic, it's the subject matter, and here the subject--Prince Judah Ben-Hur (Charlton Heston) and his estrangement from old Roman pal Messala (Stephen Boyd)--is rich, detailed, and sensitively handled. Director William Wyler, who had been a junior assistant on MGM's original silent version back in 1925, never sacrifices the human focus of the story in favor of spectacle, and is aided immeasurably by Miklos Rozsa's majestic musical score, arguably the greatest ever written for a Hollywood picture. At four hours it's a long haul (especially given some of the portentous dialogue), but all in all, Ben-Hur is a great movie, best seen on the biggest screen possible.

Summary : Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ is a novel by Lew Wallace, published by Harper and Brothers on November 12, 1880 and considered "the most influential Christian book of the nineteenth century".[1] It became a best-selling American novel, surpassing Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852) in sales. The book also inspired other novels with biblical settings and was adapted for the stage and motion picture productions. Ben-Hur remained at the top of the US all-time bestseller list until the publication of Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind (1936). The 1959 MGM film adaptation of Ben-Hur is considered one of the greatest films ever made and was seen by tens of millions, going on to win a record 11 Academy Awards in 1960, after which the book's sales increased and it surpassed Gone with the Wind.[2] It was blessed by Pope Leo XIII, the first novel ever to receive such an honour.[3] The success of the novel and its stage and film adaptations also helped it to become a popular cultural icon that was used to promote numerous commercial products.
