I wanted to let you know that this evening (Tuesday 16th) Channel 9 will be screening Paul Burnett’s miniseries production “The Bible”. The is the miniseries’ introduction to Free to Air television in Australia

Disclaimer: I have not seen any of this series, nor have I read the reviews widely. There may be other reviews which may draw other conclusions – feel free to post those links in the comments section.

I am letting you know about this series because any production of this type says something about the culture we’re in, and how we see the events of God’s rescue of his people. Like anything else, these are best watched with an open mind and a discerning eye.

It could be that if it’s well done, this series will be a tool for your church, or something to discuss in your home groups.

One thought on “The Bible – You’ve read the book, now see the movie…

  1. Hi Davo
    We heard about the screening and decided to give it a go. It was pretty good considering the ads were a real painful interruption sometimes after only a 5 min clip! 😃
    But apart from that it was good….hoping the rest of the series will be as good too.
