  23. This series is destined to be a classic. I so hope to win this set.
    I love the music that the put to the series!
    Wish me luck!!!!!!!

  25. Brooke Hanson on

    somehow life has led me here. I’ve recently been working towards being baptized at the church where my aunt and good friend go for mass. it’s traditional Latin mass and has helped find me find something to live for when i lost my way. My friend has been teaching and reading to me and i’ve been meeting with the Father at the church for catechism lessons. my family has always been Catholic and i feel like it’s my time to discover where i fit in. anyways that’s my story so far, and i’m really excited to find where God will lead me next.

  26. I’ve been enjoying the series and would love to have the set to share with my children when they get a little bit older (still too scary in some scenes-hearing it is different than seeing it). Thank you for this opportunity!

  27. Your website is awesome! I love all the crafts, printables, etc. that help keep our kids engaged in the celebration of our religion. Thank you for all that you do.

  28. Tara Polonski on

    Would love to own the series to watch with my family! Thanks for doing this giveaway! Many blessings to you. 🙂

  29. My children and I have really enjoyed watching this together. They like it so much that they rewatched with me(ondemand)the episodes that I missed. My 9 year old was so excited and animated when watching it — he told me everything that was going to happen – thank goodness I knew the stories or I may have been disappointed knowing the outcome before getting to see it. His favorite story is about Moses. I am very pleased and excited that they are so interested in this – they request to watch it – ask when new episodes will be on – want to rewatch it. I would love to have this series to watch with my kids each Easter Season and make it a tradition. Thanks for the opportunity to share our faith and the stories with our family.

  30. Melanie Johnston on

    I have heard such great things about this series!!… We’ve got cable but with a 4yr old, 2yr old, & baby in the belly… I’m waaaaaaay too disorganized to actually sit down & watch it consistently!!… the hubster & I would love this!! 🙂

  31. I’ve heard so many great comments on this series that I’ve been wanting to see them but have not had the chance to… I work with the teens at my parish and would love to show it to them… Thanks for this giveaway..and May God Bless your beautiful ministry I love it

    Several friends were talking about this just this morning!! We do not have cable to view it so winning it would be a blessing! Happy Easter!

  33. In order to cut expense when my husband was unemployed we cancelled cable and decided not to get it back on after he found his blessing of job. This has been an good decision except for missing this show. I know my family would love to have this in our home to watch over and over.

  35. Kimberly Rafalko on

    I am absolutely in love with The Bible 10 hour miniseries. My whole family watches these movies when they are aired. After watching an episode, I find myself wanting to know more about the contents of the Bible. Couple Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, along with their cast and production staff, all did a wonderful job with this miniseries from beginning to end. I have shared and talked about these episodes to many people in my life in person and on Facebook. Thank you to everyone in the production of this miniseries. Your compassion, dedication and love will be appreciated forever in my life.

  36. So far I watched one episode that aired on the History channel, it was epic! Awesome way to help us reflect on God promises to his people! A must have to share Jesus journey with friends and family!

  37. crystal cummings on

    Thanks for holding a great contest! I’ve had several people ask me if I have seen this and heard nothing but great things about it! We do not have cable so we haven’t had thw opportunity to see it yet. 🙂

  38. What a wonderful prize! This would make a nice birthday present for my husband. He rarely watches TV, but seems to be enjoying this series.

  39. It’s great to be able to watch this series. I got my whole family into it and now they are asking me question about our faith. Jesus is cool.

  40. Would LOVE to win this; thanks for the opportunity! We are in the midst of a move and haven’t had time to really sit down and watch TV for weeks but heard this is phenomenal. I already follow you on FB & find you incredibly inspiring! My husband bought me your “Catholic Saints for Moms” book a couple of months ago. Have a blessed Holy Thursday & Happy Easter!

  41. Shannon Henson on

    Exciting to see so many people are loving the series. I would also love to have it for the family video library. Thank you for the opportunity!

  42. Since we go over some of Jesus’ parables and miracles in my CCD class, this would be a wonderful addition! Thanks for offering!

  43. Melissa Micek on

  49. Connie Rossini on

    I too would love to win this DVD and CD prize. Like others above, our family doesn’t have cable TV and I haven’t been able to watch it yet. Before the show aired, I heard Mark and Roma on a Christian radio talk show. I am so excited that they are bringing to life the Bible. I hope that it will inspire many to return to the Church.

    Happy Easter everyone!

  59. Jeanne McDonald on

  60. P. HarlowRhoades on

    Are You Really Trying to Be Like Christ? What a great article! Thanks for that. Thanks for offering this wonderful gift of The Bible miniseries. Happy Easter!

  61. I’d love to win this! No cable, no dish, no History Channel here. DVD is the only way we’ll see it. 🙂

  62. What a great series! Even my 4 year old loves to sit and watch and ask questions. My fovorite is when she sees something in the “movie” and says, “Hey, I know this story!”

  63. We have missed this series on TV, but would very much like to see it, especially at a time that is convenient to us and our children. I’ve heard terrific reviews!

  64. What a great interpretation of one of the most revered book by all Christians! Our family enjoyed watching every episode and even try to see if we recall the stories!

  66. it is a show that my husband and i have watched together every Sunday of Lent. We have been waiting to have the box set to save for our little kiddos when they are receiving their sacraments. Thanks Lisa…

  67. Loved the series and we have been talking about it in youth ministry. The youth (all ages) have watched and talking about. Finally something that is of Faith. 🙂

  68. Adrienne Zannino on

    I love this miniseries. My husband and I are watching it with the kids and we have had some great conversations about the Bible. Thanks for the giveaway!

  69. Leslie Lenko on

    It is an exceptional series and as a family we have been watching it. Hope many others will discover “The Bible” when it is available on DVD. Thankful that the History Channel has provided the program series. We would be happy to win the DVD & music CD!

  70. Shannon Gardner on

    Hope you have a Blessed Easter! Just found your blog/website through Jeff Cavins on FB. Doing his Matthew Study right now & happy to find you and your inspiring posts!

  71. DD and I can’t wait to watch it each week. Would love to be able to watch it again and share it my family and friends.

  72. We have been watching The Bible Mini Series on cable and love it! Would love to be able to watch it again. Thanks for the review and opportunity.

  73. This mini series has been a true blessing for us all. We have watched this together as a family and it has been so rewarding.

  74. I’ve heard so much about this series, but unfortunately we don’t have cable (trying to simplify). Would love to have it and appreciate the witness of the gospel via DVD. Thank you for the opportunity to put my name in the running.
    Blessings….

  75. I heard great reviews about this in my church group but haven’t seen it yet as I don’t subscribe to cable. I’m definitely putting this in my “to watch” list though. Thank you for giving us a chance to get a copy!

  76. Miranda Staas on

    We don’t have the history channel, so I haven’t had the chance to catch any of this series! It would be awesome to have the entire thing!

  77. Happy Easter! We would love to have the DVD series to watch together as a family. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  78. jacquelyn gusdane on

    The conclusion of the series will be the perfect way for all of us to celebrate Easter Sunday. What a gift this is to so many – everywhere. A Blessed Easter!

  79. My entire family including my three children loved watching this series. I homeschool them and would love to have this set in our home library for reference!

  80. What a witness it is to the world that a show about the Bible is the top rated show on TV?!?! How exciting is that!?! And I think it should say to producers that it’s time to bring back more faith-based shows like “Touched by an Angel”, “7th Heaven”, etc. I loved this series! It was so well done, didn’t sugar coat the violence of the Old Testament (it was a very violent time in History!) and would be wonderful to add to our collection to share with our children as they grow older. Thank you for the chance!

  81. We have cut the cable in our house so we haven’t seen it yet! In an effort to be mindful about what kinds of businesses we give our money to and in consideration of all the inappropriate things our children inadvertently see on, we have eliminated cable tv. I hope to win so we can see it!

  82. Would love to win this. We don’t have cable, but everyone’s been talking about it. So I’d love to see it.

  83. I really enjoyed the miniseries sunday couldnt come quick enough when i wanted to see the next episode we watched the marathon on Easter amd it just as much when the first episode aired i would love to win the dvd set but if i dont no worries ill buy regardless

  84. robin blithe on

    i watched every bit of it with my 8 yo son, it was by far the best version ive ever seen! i hope everyone watches it. im gonna buy this and share it with everyone in my family. thankyou roma for creating the best bible series ever.

  85. I don’t have cable/dish so I have only gotten to see bits of this epic when I work out at my local gym (gotta love the combo-sweat & the bible!!)
    It has kept me on the elliptical well past my intended stopping point. Thanks for this offer!

  86. I had the opportunity to watch it one night and loved it. I don’t’ have the History Channel so I missed most of it. To win the mini series would be wonderful.. I am an Active Christian and try to have this type of entertainment in my home. Playing Christian movies brings the Spirit into my home which is my sanctuary and I try to keep it that way. I don’t invite the adversary into my home ever and this keep my home a safe place. Thanks for the opportunity to win this cd set

  88. Need to watch this several more times, how can someone have the knowledge of the Bible~but know so little about it?

  89. Mary LeBaron on

    As the leader of a small Scripture study group I can tell you my group members have raved about this mini series.

  90. This was an amazing miniseries and so well portrayed. Congrats to the cast, producers and all involved. Definitely something I would love to see again.

  91. Awsome giveaway! Our family watched every episode together, would love the opportunity to do it again and again!

  92. I would love this serious! I work at a church and we could have it for the students to watch! Finally, a serious that brings the bible to life.

  93. Thank you for offering this valuable prize to us. I would love to see the entire series of The Bible before I am learning and exploring The Bible a coming weeks.

  94. Carol Carrier on

    Two of my grandchildren received Sacraments during the Easter Vigil this year. I would love to win this for them. Thanks for the chance.

  95. My family was glued to the television when this aired. Thanks for the opportunity to own this great miniseries.

  96. I loved the movie….actually, no – I am in love with it. And learned once more how much I love the Lord. Would be awesome to win it. God’s blessings.

  97. Linda Schoen on

    I have enjoyed watching the Bible movie on TV but because of Lent/Easter scheduling at church haven’t been able to watch the whole series. Having this on DVD will let that happen.

  98. I would love to add this to my collection. I do not have cable or satelite and I am so anxious to view this miniseries. I think this would be a great teaching tool for faith formation.

    God Bless!

    Maribeth

  99. How many times are we supposed to post a comment. I would love a copy.
    Like I said before this is probably one of the most important movies of our generation made.
    Congratulations

  100. Noooooo i need the it to please let me have one if the series. I dont allow. Any thong into my home that would take the spirit away

  101. Betty Yancey on

    I loved the Bible mini-series and I love Roma Downey! Thanks for sharing your faith with us in this very special way. I think it was very timely for the people of the world!

  102. Barbara Hosack on

    We do not get the history channel at our home, so unfortunately this was a show we sadly missed watching. However, every Monday morning, after the Sunday evenings that it was aired, our exercise friend at our 6 am cycling class, would tell us what Bible stories were portrayed, and give us some comments about it. I liked that we were talking about the Bible. My husband and I are greatly looking forward to watching it on DVD sometime in the future!.

  103. Unfortunately, I was unable to watch the epic mini-series unfold on the History Channel, but I have been watching it on YouTube (how it ended up there, I am not sure!)! I love the show so far! I love how it really draws my heart closer to the Lord and brings all the Bible stories that I know and love to the BIG Screen! I love how it helps me to love my Savior and King MORE!

  104. Vanessa Siguenza on

    Having been raised Catholic, and now a mom of three young children (ages: 9, 7, & 6), I do all that I can to instill the faith, beliefs and traditions onto my children. Although they attend public school, I decided to extend myself to others in helping with our church’s CCE program; voluntarily taught for 4 years! I have been heavily involved in our church’s CCE Program and other family gatherings of the church throughout the year. We attend church, my 2nd child will be receiving her First Holy Communion this year…so this series of “The Bible” is a great extension to my desire for my children to be closer connected with the stories of Jesus, God and His People from long ago. It’ll provide a visual for my kids and hopefully help them to better comprehend the lessons God so wanted us to learn from the past.

  105. I only heard about this series from a friend last night! I an not a tv person and hadn’t heard about it. I had decided I would research it today, ironically I am on this site for Sunday gospel activities – which I always love. I am no more deserving than anyone else who posted, but the opportunity timing wise strikes me. Thanks for the chance.

  106. Amy Threewitt on

    I would love to have this series for my five homeschooled children! We don’t have the History Channel and I have been wishing we could see it! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  107. Amy Threewitt on

    Not sure if my last comment posted. I would love to have this series for my five homeschooled children. We don’t have the History channel. thanks for this giveaway!

  108. Thank you for offering this wonderful prize package. I was only able to watch bits and pieces but enjoyed what I saw. Happy Easter!

  109. I am a r.e teacher and we are looking for something to show them about the bible. I saw the whole thing but now we want to show it to the big kids.

  110. NANCY Cosgrove on

    This was the best program on TV for years.with the exception of EWTN. I congratulate the producers and know this is a bold statement and a courageous one. It has shown how our world is starving for the Truth.. Would love the DVD..but we can afford to get it so I would like to see a young family have it..Lovely give-away that will plant so many seeds.. Peace

  111. Ann Marie Mills on

    I really enjoyed the series. I think my favorite part was actually the end when John was on the island and Jesus came to him. Thank you for keeping so true to The Bible!

  112. I don’t have cable so I wasn’t able to watch this series, but several of my non-Catholic co-workers have watched it and they raved about it! It made for very interesting mini-catechism sessions at work as we discussed Abraham obediently going to sacrifice Isaac and what that means for us today about obeying God’s will even when we don’t understand it, and about the slaughter of the Holy Innocents and how that is still occurring today under the name abortion. I would love to win a copy! Thanks for this opportunity!

  113. Susana Alvarez on

    I loved watching The Bible. I wish I had the DVDs so that I can share them with my children. I would like them to see them with me as a family so that they could be reminded how much Jesus loves us.

  114. I’ve heard so many amazing reviews about the series, but haven’t been able to watch it. We’d love to see it! Thank you for the offer.

  115. I do not have cable, so I could not watch this beautiful mini series. Winning this would be just awesome 🙂

  116. I would love to be able to win. I don’t have cable, so I didn’t get to watch it. I’ve heard it was really good…worth watching.

  117. Colleen Fitzgerald on

    I have four boys and they each watched a portion of this series and loved it, but we had several conflicts and weren’t able to see the whole thing. I would love to win the DVD series because I would enjoy sharing it with them. I know my 9 year old twins would watch it again and again.

  118. What an awesome giveaway! We would love to own this series to watch it for the first time and every Lenten season.

  119. We don’t have cable so I didn’t get to watch the series on TV. Looking forward to seeing it for myself on DVD.

  120. Maria Newboles on

    I do not have cable on my TV so I have not be able to watch the Bible yet. I had watched little bits here and there thru youtube. I am reading the book and it is wonderful. Thank you!

  121. I have not been able to watch the servies yet either, but have heard so much positive about it, I can’t wait to watch on DVD!

  122. My girls were telling me how we should subscribe to cable so we can watch The Bible mini series together, because they said everyone is talking about how good it is and that I would like it. Wow, I was so tickled just to hear them share that with me and that they would watch it. I would be even more humbled to be able to watch it with them! That would be my Divine Mercy Sunday blessing.
    Thank you for all that you do fo God’s glory.

  123. Lisa, you are awesome. Thank you for the opportunity to win this awesome show. We saw parts of it, but our cable is not very accessible so we missed quite a bit. My children love to watch the old movies about Jesus, and Moses etc — they (and I) would love to see these entire series.
