Have you been watching the new mini-series, "The Bible A.D." on Sunday nights on NBC? It is produced by Roma Downey and her husband, Mark Burnett, who also produced "The Bible" mini-series a couple of years ago. We are dvr-ing so we won't miss any of the episodes. Since we haven't been able to watch the past 3 Sundays this week we caught up by watching all three. I am not much of a fan of biblical movies because, in my opinion, they are typically not done well, but this one is an exception! We thought it was excellent--even better than the first series--maybe because it portrays several chapters in Acts which can more easily be applied to our lives as disciples. The mini-series makes it very apparent how difficult life was for Jesus' followers.
I highly recommend the series.
