Basically, The Bible is a 10-hour, five-part, made for TV docudrama telling some of the best-known stories from the Bible. Five hours of the series focus on the Old Testament and five hours on the New Testament. While the series does not follow the Bible word for word, overall its intent was to retain the spirit of the written word.
We've been watching the series as a family since it started, and I have to say I'm so impressed with it so far. I'll admit that we don't go to church as often as I'd like, so this series has proved to be a great conversation starter and a way to really get my kids engaged in some of the stories from the Bible that they're familiar with and some that they're not.
But then I wouldn't expect any less from the History Channel -- we regularly tune into their programming.
