The Bible Series: A Must Watch

 |  NCR Today

I was so fortunate to recently attend a screening of the upcoming miniseries, "The Bible, " and was lucky to meet Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) and Mark Burnett (Survivor, the Voice)  who created the piece. I was moved in so many ways by the message and personal story behind the anticipated new series.

The series is especially important for young Christians who have grown up with films like "the Ten Commandments" but have yet to have a series they can call their own. This isn't an over dramatized documentary like we're used to. Instead, we're given a beautifully done television drama which captures the mystery, love and journey of Genesis through Revelation.

Appropriately, the piece was a product of the love between Mark and Roma who are such an amazing testament to marriage and collaboration. They spoke about how their love and faith journey brought them to make this series. It was simply incredible to watch them share their talents as a couple to glorify God.

You must tune into this series on the history channel premiering on March 3rd, which will run through the Bible beggining to end. Visit there website HERE and learn more about the piece, and view some of the breathtaking clips. Finally, we have a series that lives up to the greatest story ever told.
