The Bible - Coming To The History Channel

 

Television’s highly-acclaimed producer, Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor, The Apprentice), and his wife, Roma Downey (Touched by An Angel) are bringing the most widely-read book of all time to life on the screen, with breathtaking beauty and the use of dramatic live action and cutting-edge CGI technology. “We feel this is the most important project we have ever undertaken,” said Mark and Roma. “Regardless of one’s belief system, no book has impacted humankind more than the Bible. Its influence on politics, culture, literature, art, music, philanthropy and education is unequaled.”
Where all human history begins. It's stunning how many modern historians ignore its importance and influence.  More here.

This looks like it will be good. Looking forward to it. I've said the same thing regarding the Bible and historians...it's like some think Biblical events happened in some sort of a vacuum separate from every other historical event. How do you understand history, especially western history without it? But, then I think they should also teach the "Great Books" in schools.

HBG - it does look good. Too many Christian films are cheezy w/poor acting. This looks like very well-done production. Thanks to historians and our inept educational system, our Nation has become biblically illiterate.
