Don't Miss This!!

     We saw the trailer for this wonderful endeavor at the Vineyard Church in Champaign on Saturday.  It looks amazing!  I thought if you hadn't heard of it--you would want to know.  I've already set our DVR so I won't miss any of it.

   “The Bible” is an epic five-week, 10-hour television mini-series premiering March 3, 2013 on the History Channel from Emmy-Award winning husband and wife team, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. 
     For two hours each Sunday night, millions of viewers will see the Bible come to life in a way never before seen. The final episode of the series will air on Easter Sunday [March 31] and will feature the death and resurrection of Jesus.  To help ensure the accuracy of the miniseries, many Christian scholars served as advisors and hundreds of Christian leaders have given their endorsement.
    "In terms of importance, nothing we've ever done, not Touched By An Angel, not Survivor, not The Voice, not The Apprentice, none of this could possibly compare to “The Bible”," Burnett says. This is not a TV show to us.  It's images, sound and sacred text that people will still watch, way after our grandchildren are old people."
    Famed television producer Mark Burnett tackles his projects with passion, but The Bible is a special labor of love.
     The 10-hour, five-part docudrama will span the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, presenting some of its best-known stories, including Noah's Ark, the Exodus, Daniel in the lions' den and the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.
      Former Touched By An Angel star Roma Downey, Burnett's wife and fellow executive producer, heads a large international cast in the role of Mother Mary. Keith David, an Emmy winner for voice-over performances, will narrate with a musical score by Oscar-and-Grammy-winning composer Hans Zimmer.
    Since the entire Bible can't be covered in 10 hours, the miniseries, which was filmed in Morocco, focuses on a select group of stories and features such compelling figures as Abraham, Moses and David.  Some stories had to be compressed for artistic purposes.
    This mini-series does not begin until March 3rd but this will give all of us a chance to tell as many people as possible about it..  Let's use this series to reach as many people as possible! ! !  God will Bless You! !
