The History Channel’s Bible Miniseries Mishandling of God’s Word

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Rom. 12:2, NASB

Back on February 14th my wife and I went to see a movie at a local theater. It was Lincoln, which I have wanted to see for some time since I have been reading Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book Team of Rivals upon which the movie is partially based. The book is history written based upon actual letters and diaries and records written by the people Goodwin wrote about in her book, however, in the movie, artistic license was obviously taken in order to dramatize certain things. Certain facts were made up and others were left out or changed in order “to fit the movie story line” and tell the story that Steven Spielberg wanted to tell. We arrived at the theater early, and we had to sit through nearly 30 minutes of previews and specials before our movie actually started. One of those specials that was previewed was The History Channel’s upcoming miniseries, “The Bible.” View article →
