I am undecided about it.
I recommend canceling your cable. You’ll save money and have a lot more time for constructive things.
On this topic, I can read the book.
I will as long as Duck Dynasty isn’t playing at the same time.
I don’t have a TV but I’m sure I could find it somewhere. It’s probably going to be a lot different than the book. Sort of like The Hobbit with blasphemy.
I will record it and watch with a cautious optomism. I know a person who knows 1 of the producers and hopes it will turn out well because of that. As long as no one tries to build their theology on it, it could be OK.
One should watch the series only to see how many times the producers manage to incorporate aliens (as in space aliens, not as in president aliens) into the show.
I haven’t had cable for almost 10 years. I don’t miss a thing. Especially now that everything I’d want to watch is on YouTube.
I watched a BBC documentary about India. That was an eye opener.
There was a nice write-up about Mark Burnett and his wife Roma Downey in Parade last weekend.
And I caught the tail end of a Focus on The Family radio interview with them today.
I think it will be a quality series.
Not sure . . . wonder just how awful they’ll portray biblical characters.
I read a favorable review of it at creation.com. The reviewers seemed to think it was well done with some minor reservations. One can always hope!
100% Yes!! Producer found Christ a few years ago. His wife is a committed Believer. Both are big players in Hollywood. This 5 week, 10 hour series will be split 50/50 between Old & New Testament events, with the final episode being Christ’s resurrection broadcast on Easter Sunday.
Mark & Emma are strong proponents of having the world’s most significant, influential and widely read book, the Bible, added back into school curriculum - to be taught, not preached.
Conservatives have long sought less slime and more decency from Hollywood. Why on earth wouldn’t all conservatives support and celebrate this series?
Already got the DVR set. I’ll know in the first 5 mins whether I need to delete it or not.
Watch it with a note book to mark down everything they get wrong.
Made me laugh!
If they used “Texus Receptus”, The LXX, or the King James it MAY be worth my while. If they used the “New Age” “Preversions”(NIV, NAS, etc) I HOPE IT FAILS!
I read the book. I won’t tell you how it ends but it was a good read.
Anything that Rick Warren has his fat little finger tips on is not something I am going to support.
The Bible or the “series”?
I heard the couple who produced it are bible believing Christians. It might turn out pretty good.
It still remains to be seen whether or not this is just another attack on Christians or not. Maybe Mark wants another award from GLAAD, like he got in 2001?
