This week, I learned that the History Channel will be airing a drama mini-series about the Bible. It will be a 10-part series over 5 weeks, beginning on 3rd March 2013. It looks to be an artistic display of the biblical accounts from Genesis to Revelation. The series is produced by Mark Burnett and Roman Downey, who have also done shows like The Survivor and Touched by an Angel.
Darrel Bock, New Testament professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, had this to say about the series following the pre-screening:
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.
