Less than a month from today the History Channel will air an epic series simply called The Bible. Produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice, The Voice) and Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) the series covers the story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation over 10 hours. Five two-hour episodes will air every Sunday night in March. The final episode will appropriately air on Easter Sunday.
The website for the series is www.bibleseries.tv. It is filled with clips, pictures, news, and resources. Outreach (the ministry) has produced many resources for churches and small groups to make the most of the potential of the series.
Our church is going to air the series at the church on Sunday nights for anyone who does not have cable, and for those who want to invite friends that might not have a church home to come and see the series with them.
Make sure to go to the link www.bibleseriesresources.com to see the free resources available to compliment what Outreach has created. Also, don't miss the music videos you can access from the site. They are awesome.
Spread the word to your friends. This is the best Bible production I've ever seen. (I might be biased since I worked on it!) They got it right!
I'll keep you posted as the countdown continues.
