Actress Roma Downey ("Touched By an Angel") and her husband, producer Mark Burnett ("The Voice," "Survivor," "The Apprentice") are very excited to present their epic miniseries that was five years and a lot of hard work in the making--The Bible. The series covers Genesis through Revelation, presenting two or three major stories within each 2-hour episode, and the cast and crew worked hard to create a genuine interpretation reverently portraying events from scripture. The series will air on the History Channel beginning March 3, 2013, and run for five consecutive weeks, with the final episode showing on Easter Sunday.

Here, Mark and Roma describe how important making the series has been for them and how they hope it will impact all who watch it. Below that are some selected previews from the series that we hope you will enjoy, and be sure to read Gloria Gaither's interview with the couple in the March/April issue of Homecoming Magazine!
