The voice acting was quite awful. The introduction and epilogue, both by Billy Graham himself, exuded warmth, friendliness, and an easiness with the words that simply emphasized the narrator's clumsiness and woodenness through the heart of the text.
A pleasant surprise that was not really a surprise at all.

Where he tracks the movements of the fish by watching the birds fly overhead.
