The “History” Channel’s “The Bible” miniseries, loosely based on the Bible, now has a spin-off novel containing the retold Bible stories … I feel a headache coming on.
It has what Richard Metzger calls “the very best title EVER in the entire history of the publishing industry… well at least since the invention of the Gutenberg printing press in the 15th century.”
Scripture’s greatest stories and most compelling characters come to life in this sweeping new novel by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett.
Beginning with the creation of man and ending with the revelation of a new world, readers will revel in this epic saga of warriors, rebels, poets, and kings, all called upon by God to reveal His enduring love for mankind. Ultimately, God’s plan is fulfilled in the story of Jesus the Messiah, whose life, death and resurrection brings salvation to one and all.
Something about this just sums up popular Christianity.
