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.

Rufus, Thanks for the Tozer link. Good stuff. I have several Tozer books. Ravenhill is good too. He has some good quotes online.

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.

If it has anything to do with the Bible or Christianity avoid the History Channel like the plague, anything on it is as Christian as Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF)

By any measure episode 1 was a very poor dramatization. Even the unbiblical bits were often plagiarized from other movies.

Very good comment; no more heroes. I agree fully with your thought process.

Rufus, thanks for the link; it is excellent!
