Save the Date, March 3 History Channel
I am just back from a pre-screening of a ten part series on the Bible that will air across five weeks on the History Channel starting March 3. The series is produced by Mark Burnett and Roman Downey. They have done shows like The Survivor and Touched by an Angel. It was fun to visit with them today at thre screening.
They are married to each other and have wanted to do this a long time. He is from London and she is from Derry, Ireland. They are now Americans and wonderful believers who have worked on this project for well over 3 years. It will involve scenes from Genesis through Revelation. To get through the story, they have in spots combined or juxtaposed events, but the overall effect is a powerful presentation of the core story of the Bible. I was advised of the project over a year ago while on Sabbatical at a Conference in England. They have kept me posted of its progress as they filmed.
It is nice to be able to recommend something that has both artistic and spiritual merit. So save the date. Sit back and watch the Bible come alive.
