The Bible on The History Channel: Final

So here's a question: Would you watch The Bible on The History Channel again? I can definitely say I would not. As far as I am concerned it missed its mark--at least the mark I set for it as a potentially viable, useful, inspiring account of the Bible.

And another thing about Sunday night’s “The Bible”

There was another portrayal from the fourth part of The Bible on the History Channel that was potentially the most explosive insinuation of the entire series thus far.

It's not its accuracy that is reeling you in. My take of last night's installment (at least as much as I have the interest … Continue reading The Bible on the History Channel, Part 2

The Bible on the History Channel . . . A Review

I have learned from past experience that practically any time channels like The Discovery Channel, the Biography Channel, A & E, and in this case The History Channel, try to take a closer look at the Bible or Jesus, it always comes from the perspective of human reasoning and not a belief in the supernatural, … Continue reading The Bible on the History Channel . . .
