Thank you Fox Home Entertainment for sponsoring today’s review.
This television event shattered home entertainment records! The Bible series is now the #1 TV on DVD in the last 5 years and the #1 TV miniseries of all time across Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. The DVD and Blu-ray broke record sales with 525,000 units sold in the first week alone! The Bible series is the 31 cable TV series and topped 95 million viewers!
Did you watch The Bible when it aired on the History channel?
From its early debut last July at The International Christian Retailers Show (ICRS), to the unparalleled praise from notable spiritual leaders as Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Samuel Rodriguez, Cardinal Wuerl and Rick Warren, to receiving The Parents Television Council 2013 Seal of Approval, THE BIBLE has ignited discussion across the country about the greatest story ever told.
“We are humbled by the overwhelming response from audiences to THE BIBLE miniseries,” said co-executive producers, husband and wife team Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. “First, the show was number one on HISTORY, now it is number one on Blu-ray™ and DVD and has been number one in every country in which it aired. We feel incredibly blessed that we were able to bring this amazing love story to life on the screen. It is our hope that folks everywhere will continue to be touched by the message of the Bible and cherish these stories at home with their families for years to come. This is just the beginning.”
“Mark and Roma have created a work of broad cultural significance that has resonated deeply with audiences, and THE BIBLE has quickly become a must own DVD that families can enjoy together at home time and time again,” said Mary Daily, president and chief marketing officer of worldwide marketing, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
“THE BIBLE continues to reach a broad audience and in just its first week it became the #1 title at retail stores,” said Simon Swart, executive vice president and general manager of North America for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. “It’s rare that a project comes along that touches millions of people in such an impactful way. THE BIBLE series is clearly a phenomenon that will be enjoyed by families for many years.”
“I’m so encouraged that Mark and Roma have produced this series,” said Stephen Quinn, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Walmart. “Walmart is proud to sponsor programming that is so appreciated by the families we serve. This series is being viewed by millions of people across the country, most of whom are Walmart shoppers. Family friendly programming is good for our customer, our business and our culture.”
From Executive Producers Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor) and Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel), THE BIBLE is an epic 10-part miniseries which retells the stories of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. The four-disc Blu-ray™ and DVD set dives deeper into the making of the series and features a behind-the-scenes look at how the ground-breaking miniseries came together.
Connect With The Bible Series
We only caught this on television for two episodes. With our busy life and often early nights in bed with little ones, we didn’t get to watch it more than this. I was bummed. I wanted to be able to watch it each evening with the rest of America. I am thankful that it came out on Blu-ray and DVD so soon. This gives our family the chance to see it from start to finish.
What can I say about this film that has not been said? I mean, look at the stats above, and you will see that it has resonated with Americans and people world wide. By making a new movie about the Bible, they have enabled a new love for God’s word. The film has caused our own family to go back to familiar stories to see “Was that really in the Bible?” And though there were some liberties taken for movie purposes, most of this film is quite Biblical. I appreciate that. The effects are stunning. The acting superb. What a high quality movie about the Bible! This 10 part epic series is a must have Blu-ray and DVD for your video library collection.
Get back to The Bible friends. Watch this movie and open your Bible and read the stories for yourself. The movie really does make the Bible come alive and I now have a new love for my own Bible.
Wouldn’t you love this for Mother’s Day? Tell your husbands and children. Or get this for your mom! It is a sure winner.
