If you have access to the History Channel on TV, then you will want to be sure to have your TV—or DVR—set to that channel on Sunday, March 3. On that date, the History Channel will begin a 5-part, 10-hour series entitled The Bible. The series is being produced by Emmy-winning producer Mark Burnett and his wife, Touched by an Angel’s Roma Downey and will feature stories from the Bible.
Each episode will include two or three stories from the Bible told through live action and computer generated imagery intended to bring the Bible to life “in a way never seen before.” Nancy Dubuc, president of the History Channel, reports that a group of theologians and scholars were regularly consulted on the accuracy of the project and that it will be based on both the New International and New Revised Standard versions of the Bible. You can check your cable or satellite schedule for precise channels and times. If you have access to the web, you can go to http://www.history.com/the-bible to view a trailer for the series.
