For two decades now, The History Channel, A&E, Discovery, and Biography have all done a notable job of exploring the Bible, specifically the gospels, through various documentaries. Though challenging at times, I've never found them disrespectful or dismissive. For that reason, and the fact that Mark Burnett is the creator (not The Creator), I'm pumped over the History Channel's upcoming 10-part miniseries "The Bible."
Burnett, who's most famous for creating reality series such as "Survivor" and "Sarah Palin's Alaska," is one terrific storyteller. To craft a compelling narrative out of "reality' is a genuine skill, and he's been at the top of his game for two decades now. I can't think of anyone more qualified to take Genesis, Revelations, everything in-between, and turn it into a manageable storyline.
