'The Bible' Miniseries Gets A Sequel: "A.D.: Beyond the Bible,"

9:06 AM By Verne Gay

A sequel to the Bible?! There is one, or at least will be one, on TV and NBC has it. The network-in-short-supply-of-hits has ordered the sequel to Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's History Channel adaptation that aired in March and collected the biggest crowd (13 million for the first installment) on cable so far this year.

The prequel is called "A.D.: Beyond the Bible," which -- thankfully -- is a working title only.

Im sorry but the

closest thing to a sequel to the bible is the foxes book of martyrs, and edited, and blocking stuff out the best rating that could get is R, I doubt hbo could make foxes book of martyrs a series with out the fcc crawling up their butt.

Awesome!

I always love when fiction books are made into movies!!

sequelae abound

Considering how vague is the expression "The Bible".
Ye Olde Testament branches off into The Koran and The New Improved Testament (which itself leads to The New World Testament.)

Paine's perspective is more a repudiation of mysticism than a celebration of it.

Paine's perspective is more a celebration of logic

Paine's perspective is more of a celebration of logic, and the Age of Reason is the repudiation of religious books claiming to have been written or inspired by God. Paine's does not doubt that people can have religious experiences, but that experience is confined to them only, and it's hearsay for everyone else. If there is salvation, it should not be based on hearsay is one of Paine's arguments. Appreciated your perspective about this.

The Age of Reason ends where faith rolls on

True, some, even most, "religious books", deserve repudiation; just as we all have had better theological discussions with atheists than church-goers who don't really care much.

That there is a record that can be easily found, objectively tested for prophetic accuracy with past historic events, weighed against the historic and archeological evidences in a multinational region, over hundreds of years, and from multiple perspectives; doesn't mean that it can be as easily dismissed as others ought to be, eh?

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Considering ordination of Tom and Steve

Paine's argument seems to be a precursor to my own Matthew 6:6 Ministries mission statement, which is pretty much this said to committted theists, "I'm delighted for you. Now leave me alone about it."
