I'm sorry if I'm not optimistic. The last time I watched a Bible miniseries on tv they had Lot in his pirate ship trying to attack Noah in the ark. I can't bring myselt to recommend this to my congregation until I actually screen it myself.

Due to a fault on my computer I could not hear what Rick Warren was saying, and I don't lip-read much :) . But I noticed someone playing the part of 'Jesus'. I may have an aversion to people pretending or illustrating 'Jesus' by role play . It may be due to my early years as a Roman Catholic where from an early age we learned that a piece of bread, a wafer , became actual Christ body blood soul and divinity and was to be be adored . There was also the statues . Somehow they seemed to take on a live sanctity . So , I don't like people playing at being Jesus . Without the video I may have been interested in the series .

I believe everyone who get to watch this miniseries will be Encouraged to surrender their life to Jesus. After seeing what our precious Lord Jesus has done for us a person would have to have a reprobate mind not to want to acknowledge that Jesus is Lord. I am so excited for this series and can hardly wait to see the move of God. Thank you Roma and Mark for obeying the call of God on your life.

This snippet is all I have seen - but it is poor - it does not even stick to the text - why? One of the finest series I have seen is The Visual Bible on Matthew with Bruce Marchiano. Get hold of that if you can - straight from the New Testament Text.

It's hard for me to watch a biblical series that depicts events inaccurately. I don't know why they depicted Peter as being so brash with Jesus. That exchange rubbed me the wrong way. The principles as brought out by Warren were good points that we can take something away from but stick to the text. Some variation to fill in gaps may be okay but you have to be careful to not stray away from the context of events.

Mr Warren is an apostate. No one should be surprised at his cavalier attitude to biblical accuracy.
