I like it!
30 March 2013 | by bestbuddy-15See all my reviews

Not being a Christian myself, but having read some biblical literature and having an interest in documentaries on Bible, I've always felt that to be able to see these stories in action is perhaps the best way to commit them to memory, and I believe the series excels in that. This is especially monumental for the younger generation who does not often give as much importance to religion as did our forefathers. The accuracy of any representation of Bible will be and has been questioned for authenticity and for not being true to the scriptures, but I think these claims need to be looked in the light of the fact that the 4 gospels in the New Testament bear so many differences among them too.. So what is true might merely by "our version" of truth. And we need to understand the spirit of the Bible, and realize that neither does it claim to serve as an answer nor as the actual representations of what must have happened. It just tries to bring a visual representation of the Holy Bible aimed at bringing people possible who are not as much aware of the scriptures as others and serve as a quick crash course on the Biblical times, if you must.. I am not a Christian, and by watching the series know more about Christianity than I even did .. I'm sure there are others like me, and if it helps people realize the true story or the greatness of God, I''d say any form should be welcome..
