The Bible Miniseries & a Weekend Giveaway!

It's all the buzz lately. Have you seen it? With ratings higher than American Idol, The Bible miniseries on the History Channel has aired the past two Sundays and will continue this Sunday {check your local listings}. Husband and wife executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett have teamed up to bring God's story and major biblical figures to life in the series that will go on throughout this month. I'd love to share my excitement for this series along with some exclusive gifts just for YOU!

Why this Series is Important to Me

The teachings of the Bible have single handedly changed my life for the better. Some may argue that times have changed, but if you look at the major issues addressed in the Bible, they aren't much different than the issues we face today. I happily support this effort to bring the Bible to many who would not otherwise pick up a hardcopy of God's written word. It is by far the biggest effort to bring the Bible in its entirety to a wide audience on such a grand scale.

Bible Readers Beware

This 5 part miniseries attempts to take the 66 books of the bible, covering hundreds of years, and crams it into 10 meager hours of television. If you are looking for an exact interpretation, it will take away from the bigger picture of what is trying to be accomplished. What I have observed is an intentional bridging of the gaps that were not pulled from the Bible as a way to knit the most important themes of the Bible {faith in God, hope through Jesus and love for each other} together in a way that connects one time period to another. Some accuracy may have been sacrificed, but my prayer is it will only point people to the Bible to read God's word for themselves. There's nothing wrong with that in my book!

Some Bible Fun

If you've enjoyed the last two weeks, or are learning about this miniseries for the first time, I've got a treat for you! Test your Bible knowledge, view exclusive clips and photos from The Bible series and see your favorite Bible figures come to life right here on my blogger app!

A Gift for You

Now that you've had a chance to get to know The Bible series, how about a gift? I knew you'd be excited about that!

To appease the techy in me, I'd also like to invite you to take the Bible with you where ever you go by downloading the free and official app for The Bible series, You Versions Bible app for iOS. I use this app everyday as part of my quiet time. It allows me to have God's word in my pocket and handy at all times. It can do everything your paper Bible can do and more-make notes, highlight your favorite verses with an array of colors, and even read the Bible through wide variety of reading plans and devotions.

The moral for today? Feed your mind and soul with God's word and live differently. There's lots of ways to get your daily dose of God's word-read it, watch it, download it, speak it, live it. However you do it, let it change you for the better, like it did for me.
