One Million Bible Parties this Weekend
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Feb. 28, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Major organizations are propelling a national movement to encourage Christians to invite their neighbors and friends to watch TV together and discover the stories of the Bible in a fresh new way.
Focus on the Family, Christian Mingle, Jesus Daily, The American Bible Society, YouVersion Bible, Motive Entertainment and Outreach, Inc. are joining forces in their quest to see one million homes host viewing parties for The Bible, an epic TV mini-series to air on the History Channel beginning this Sunday, March 3rd, and airing every Sunday night in March concluding on Easter Sunday with the Biblical account of the Resurrection.
The Bible, a made-for-TV mini-series, is the work of Emmy award-winning producer Mark Burnett, (“Survivor” and “The Voice”) and his wife, “Touched by an Angel” star Roma Downey. The couple came up with the idea for the series based on their lifelong love of Scripture and inspiration from the biblical epics such as The Ten Commandments with Charlton Heston.
