The Bible Movie

UPDATED (3/28/13)
* Breaking News: The Bible TV miniseries has been assembled into a book and it includes all the deleted scenes!
* The Bible TV miniseries is popular, but what does it mean?
* Hollywood elites underestimated the Bible miniseries.

Original post below...

I don't know what you're going to do on Sunday nights in March, but we're going to be gathering with family and friends to watch the five part series called The Bible that will be airing on the History Channel. Check out the trailer below...

(If video doesn't appear, go here.)

How closely will this series follow the Biblical narrative? I don't know for sure. But I'm still going to watch. Why? Two reasons: 1) I have it from a reliable source that this won't be a typical History Channel offering. I've been told this is an honest attempt at telling the story of God starting in Genesis and ending in Revelation. 2) Because it's going to create great discussion and interaction about who I'm most passionate about—Jesus! Who knows, we might have to actually open our Bibles and engage God and each other  :  ) And that could be life-changing for everyone.

What are you waiting for? You will be given five Sunday nights in March to invite friends who are at various levels of spiritual interest to join you for fun, food, and a conversation starter on God and the Bible. Why not take a page out of the Old Testament and make a party of it? (Okay, it can't be a week long party like many of the Old Testament festivals... or can it? :  ) Whatever you do, don't squander this golden opportunity by watching this series alone.

Friends don't let friends watch this series alone.

Wouldn't it be crazy if after this five part series on the History Channel, people actually began to read the Bible together—discovering God and His story along the way?
