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.

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

Rufus, thanks for the link; it is excellent!
