Roma Downey’s ‘The Bible’ mini-series slammed in the New York Times

With the mini-series, which stars Downey as the Virgin Mary, premiering this weekend, Neil Genzlinger of the New York Times has reviewed it and says it leaves much to be desired.

Concluding his criticisms, Genzlinger writes: “The result is a mini-series full of emoting that does not register emotionally, a tableau of great biblical moments that doesn’t convey why they’re great.

At least The Bible movie gets people talking?! Did anyone notice the commercial for the Roman Catholic Church? C'mon really do they have to promote their "Superiority" by presenting a commercial. Now that was disgusting. Now let's talk about the bible See John1:1-15

The Menace Of The Religious Movie - A.W. Tozer

Knowing Tozer it's probably good. Knowing the History Channel, and anything that had to do with Christianity this production could only be bad. Funny, this woman doesn't look Jewish to me.

Another surefire award winner for the National Religious Broadcasters no doubt!
Very good comment; no more heroes. I agree fully with your thought process.

Rufus, thanks for the link; it is excellent!
