The BIBLE - and a Fun Give-Away!

This Sunday, March 3, 2013, the History Channel will be the start of an "epic" ten-part mini-series which re-tells Scripture accounts with all the drama and excitement which should accompany these accounts! Executive producers Roma Downey (Touched By an Angel) and Mark Burnett (Amazing Race & Survivor) describe The Bible in this way; "Breathtaking in scope and scale, The Bible features powerful performances, exotic locales and dazzling visual effects that breathe spectacular life into the dramatic tales of faith and courage from Genesis through Revelation. This historic television event is sure to entertain and inspire the whole family!"

Check this "countdown" and enjoy the features as we count-down to the start of The Bible . . .  (post your results and which Bible account you are most looking forward to seeing)
