America's most famous angel (Roma Downey of TV’s "Touched by an Angel"), and her TV producer husband, have produced a miniseries based on the Bible, called (creatively enough) "The Bible." Unlike other History Channel shows, this is not a documentary with talking heads interspersed between live action scenes with no-name actors in historical garb. This is a drama. The Bible has always been a source of entertainment, as well as religious instruction, but what Bible believers will want to know is whether the series is "true" to the Bible. The answer to that will depend on your own biblical stance, but I never expect anything that comes from the entertainment industry to accurately reflect my faith.
