History Channel’s epic mini-series “The Bible” did a commendable job of depicting the history of the Bible from beginning to end. The viewers were able to see these unforgettable stories, shared for generations, unfold before their very eyes through live action and cutting-edge computer-generated imagery. I believe there was value in the way the producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey offered new insight into famous scenes and iconic characters.
I have not decided if the soon to be released DVD series is worth owning, however, I would recommend renting the series which should be available April 2nd. The most significant segments in my mind included Noah’s journey in the ark, the Exodus, the way the angels were depicted, and the life of Jesus.
I have a sign that hangs in my office that shows a baseball player attempting to steal a base. The picture leaves you wondering if he is successful or not. The message underneath reads, “Sometimes the greatest risk…is not to risk”. The History Channel along with Mark Burnett and Roma Downey took a risk, they stepped out in faith, and they let God do the rest. Excellent lesson for us all to learn.
