Latest The Bible Items
More Americans are doubting the infallibility of the Bible, treating it as a guidebook rather than the actual words of God.
Easter, Christmas, and the Son of God: three books carry on the experience of the well-received, Emmy award nominated TV miniseries "The Bible".
With Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and Ridley Scott's "Exodus" preparing to duke it out for Old Testament auteur supremacy, Hollywood's religious renaissance gets off to a none-too-spectacular start with a chewed-over New Testament appetizer called "Son of God." A clumsily edited feature-length version of five episodes from History's hugely popular 10-hour miniseries "The Bible," this stiff, earnest production plays like a half-hearted throwback to the British-accented biblical dramas of yesteryear, its small-screen genesis all too apparent in its Swiss-cheese construction and subpar production values. Yet while Jesus' teachings have been reduced to a muddle of kindly gestures and mangled Scriptures, the scenes of his betrayal, death and resurrection crucially retain their emotional and dramatic power, which the charitable viewer may deem atonement enough for what feels, in all other respects, like a cynical cash grab.
Ten years after "The Passion of the Christ," Jesus is returning to movie theatres with a gentler, more inclusive approach.
In the beginning, there was "The Bible," the most-watched cable TV show of 2013. Following its flood of faith-inspiring success are three Bible-based movies set to open in theaters this year.
Television producer Mark Burnett said his successful three-hour History production of "The Bible" is heading to the big screen.
Mel Gibson was criticized for the graphic portrayal of the Crucifixion in "The Passion of the Christ," and the cable miniseries smash "The Bible" was criticized in some quarters for its realistic rendering. Neither of these versions, however, comes close to the gripping and compelling account brought to readers in "Killing Jesus," a book by Stephen Mansfield.
Many public school officials cringe at the very notion of teaching religion in the classroom. By doing so, they're missing out on a real opportunity to promote religious tolerance and education to impressionable young minds.
The History channel says the resemblance between President Obama and the Satan character in its new mini-series "The Bible" is coincidental and wasn't intended to be a political statement.
