Christian Media Sites Unite For THE BIBLE
For Immediate Release –More than a dozen Christian media outlets are teaming up in an unprecedented partnership Friday to offer a first glimpse of the most iconic characters from the upcoming television mini-series THE BIBLE. Each Web site will become a "destination" by debuting an exclusive poster depicting a famous biblical figure, then will link to a companion site to create a "road" that will eventually lead to THE BIBLE's own Facebook page, where the final poster of Jesus will be hosted.
The websites participating in Friday's "roadblock" include: American Bible Society, Beliefnet, Christian Cinema, Christian Post, Crosswalk, Hollywood Jesus, and Patheos. "This roadblock is a wonderful opportunity for Christian sites to be supportive of a project that treats The Bible with the reverence and respect that it deserves," said Greg Wright, editor of Hollywood Jesus. "And these images – they really capture the power and majesty of the series. This is the Bible as it's never been seen before."
THE BIBLE, premiering March on THE HISTORY CHANNEL, includes stories from Genesis to Revelation. It is being brought to television by the producing team of Roma Downey (Touched By An Angel) and Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor, Celebrity Apprentice).
"The Bible is such a remarkable and inspirational book," they said, "that we believed it deserved to be presented in a fresh way through powerful and moving filmmaking."
