to a whole new generation. You need only listen to Julia Ormond as “Mary”
or Neal McDonough as “Jesus” (see them too at www.truthandlifebible.com)

in an age when even many Christians know little of the Bible (according to a
recent Pew survey) and have all but forgotten the stories and people it celebrates
even during major holidays like Christmas.Launching November 1, 2010 in time

but arresting and compelling.”
