NEW Bible series launches on 3.3.13 from husband & wife producers Roma Downey (Touch by an Angel) & Mark Burnett (reality TV producer of Survivor, The Voice, & The Shark Tank).
From it's previews, it looks to be a very moving and accurate portrayal of scripture!
They are also teaming up with YouVersion Bible -- a free, must-have app on your phone - as their official Bible resource.

Mark Burnett, who's known as a master showman, is now putting his energy into spreading the word about his 10-hour History miniseries "The Bible."
Burnett and his wife and co-producer Roma Downey have been making the rounds of faith communities and are working with a Christian marketing firm to promote their take on the greatest story ever told. "Bible" bows March 3 and will air in two-hour segments over five Sundays, culminating on Easter, March 31.
Given the pair's credentials as devout Christians, "Bible" has enormous potential to draw an impressive crowd and, in particular, reach viewers in the evangelical demo who might not otherwise watch History.
