“I’ve probably seen most, if not all, of the films about the Bible produced in the past 50 years. This one stands alone, in a class by itself, as the best I’ve ever seen. Brilliantly produced with stunning cinematography, a Hans Zimmer score and academy-worthy acting, it stands head-and-shoulder above the rest. Too many 'Bible' films end up feeling like documentaries, with stilted dialog, second-class sets, and narration that feels like a lecture. In contrast, this series, draws you into the story from the start. The key to its effectiveness is that it lets the Bible speak for itself, without commentary, excuse or qualification, which makes it unique. This is living history at its best!” —Dr. Rick Warren, Author, What On Earth Am I Here For?, The Purpose Driven Life
“Not since Cecil B. DeMille’s production of The Ten Commandments has a powerful, major Hollywood production like ‘The Bible’ been released worldwide. This miniseries, featuring the music of Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer, will help millions to experience God’s Word in a visual, dramatic way.” —Geof Morin, American Bible Society
“I love the passion and enthusiasm that my friends Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have invested in their new History Channel series, The Bible. Rather than a word-for-word documentary, this project combines drama and history in a way that captures the essence and heart of the Gospel and the broader biblical story. I’m convinced that The Bible represents a unique opportunity to convey God’s redemptive message to a broad audience—many of whom may be unfamiliar with the narrative of Scripture. My prayer is that many lives will be impacted not only by the beauty and quality of the production, but by the Truth that lies at the center of the story.” —Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family
“Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s miniseries, The Bible, proves that when talent and passion collide, the outcome is spectacular. Having spent time with them on the set, Victoria and I witnessed firsthand not only the genius of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey but the deep and abiding passion they possess for God’s Word. Every aspect of this production from the acting to the poignant storytelling is accomplished with excellence. In particular, I found Roma’s portrayal of Mary, the mother of Jesus, to be both moving and genuine. Mark and Roma have succeeded in doing what few before them have done; they have produced a work that truly reflects the masterpiece that is the Holy Bible.” —Joel Osteen, Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church, #1 NY Times bestselling author
"Unlike any other film or miniseries I’ve ever encountered, The Bible brings the Word of God to life in the full richness of its scope, diversity, power, and magnificence. History and mystery collide as Mark Burnett and Roma Downey infuse every scene with their divinely inspired vision for sharing the poetic beauty and timeless wisdom of Scripture. This series helps us all to experience the flesh-and-blood stories of the Bible in a new light and draws us to the Divine Author who continues writing His eternal masterpiece. You will be enthralled, encouraged, and inspired by The Bible – seeing really is believing!" —Bishop T.D. Jakes, author, pastor, The Potter’s House
"The Bible, the made-for-TV video, seeks to introduce a new generation to the Bible, the great book of the works of God. It does so with great passion, exquisite skill and cinemagraphic triumph. Through the lens of the producers of this telling of the greatest story we can see at times with sweeping scope and at other moments with touching detail how it is that the Bible remains the most significant book—the book of the Word of God.
The challenge of presenting in 10 episodes the whole of the Bible highlights how this unique book continues to be read in different ways through different lenses. Yet, the Bible is the norm that has guided countless generations and millions upon millions along the pathway that leads to God’s love. My hope is that this video presentation, The Bible, may bring alive its many stories in people’s minds and hearts so that they may be drawn to rediscover the Bible and rejoice in its saving message. —Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington
“Because I grew up knowing about the bible but not understanding it, I’m overwhelmed with excitement about The Bible series. It’s impossible to put into words the awe-inspiring emotions I felt watching the Bible stories come to life on the screen. The attention to detail is impeccable. The acting is deeply moving. The music is breathtaking. I’m waiting with anticipation to see all the lives The Bible Series will impact. Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have given the world a gift.” —Craig Groeschel, pastor, Lifechurch.tv
“This series is stunning – superbly acted and beautifully produced. It brings the stories of the Bible to life in an extraordinary way.” —Nicky Gumbel, Alpha International

There may have been a few mistakes in the narrative.
I expected something more stunning as per the ads excitement over the production of this series

I can't believe the History Channel actually did this series. The only things I have ever seen from them is the alternative stories (books that didn't make it in the bible) or trying to explain miracles scientifically. To just do a show about just what the bible says without any commentary is commendable. Plus the acting and directing was first rate.

BrettDeland, FLAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Realistic portrayal of Biblical times.May 3, 2013BrettDeland, FLAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is a very interesting portrayal of history during the time Christianity was forming. This film is very graphic and does cover many events in the Bible but due to time restraints required making a series like this there were many short cuts that were taken. Some of the events portrayed were not as written in the Bible, but the thought was still there. I would recommend this movie series to everyone and I did enjoy it.
Q: copyright laws Can exerpts from The Bible DVD be played in church? Parts would be great as sermon illustrations, but I don't know about the copyright laws concerning this.Thank you.
Any permissions or licenses for viewing any part of the DVD would need to be obtained from the publisher.
