Through The Greatest Story Ever Told, a very large audience has been provided the teachings of the New Testament in a form and manner which are not only dramatic and effective, but which are on the same high plane as the teachings themselves. More than this, the program has maintained such a high degree of religious integrity, and has been so free of denominational bias or prejudice, that it has won the acclaim of newspapers, magazines, trade journals, and religious leaders alike. During a time when religious features, both on the air and in print, have gained a new high in popular favor, The Greatest Story Ever Told has occupied a peculiar niche, carved by both quality and popularity, and in recognition of which is awarded this special George Foster Peabody Citation.
