In an interview with CBN.com, the couple shared their faith in Jesus Christ and their vision for creating the miniseries.
When asked about his faith and his upbringing, Mark Burnett stated, "I don't remember, in my house growing up, where there wasn't a Bible. On the other hand, I grew up in a pretty strict, Scottish house. My mom was Presbyterian Scottish; my dad was a Scottish Catholic. I actually didn't know there was a difference between Protestant and Catholic. That was never mentioned; and there was never a bad word between them. But the one thing I was aware of was that there were certain rules in the Bible and very strict consequences."
He then went on to describe how he learned to understand that the story of the Bible is more about God's love and less about harsh rules.
Roma summed up their mission in making the project by saying, "We have told this story faithfully, from Genesis to Revelation. It's an introductory to the Bible. In only 10 hours, we couldn't tell the whole Bible, of course. But we hope that we'll touch people's lives. It's God's love for us; it's the story of redemption and hope. And it will be our hope that people are touched by it everywhere."
The series airs tonight, March 3, 2013 on the History Channel.
